I don’t like facebook. I use it only sparingly, and only because it has become somewhat necessary to stay in touch with distant family members. Also, it’s fire-walled at work, so I couldn’t use it there if I wanted to. So, WHY is my burdastyle account automatically logging into my facebook account (I keep disconnecting it) without verifying with me that I want it too? And why does burdastyle log me out of my facebook account whenever I disconnect the two?

ETA: Because FB is firewalled at work, if the accounts are linked I can’t post anything on Burdastyle.

    AGHHH!!! I am so frustrated with the stupid facebook auto-login! It never asks me if I want to login, it just DOES IT. Then I have to disconnect it, which logs me OUT of facebook, which I also didn’t ask for!

      Let me see if I can get you some help on this. That does seem a bit invasive that your burdastyle account is controlling your FB account. I’m sure there’s a way around it, but I will see if one of our computer smart guys know.

      Happy sewing!

    I would like the auto pop up stopped too. FB is also blocked at my work and I do not want to use my FB login for BurdaStyle, I am happy logging in like normal but I completely understand that other users like it. If I want to log in via facebook I will click the appropriate link but this window pops up even when I try to log in normally. When I log in at work during a break the FB login page pops up but with its large black and red BLOCKED page which is annoying and invasive (and I hope our IT aren’t logging how many time it appears I tried to access facebook!)

    PS: I like your new avatar Sew4my3 :)

      Putting your request in the next report. I hope to get an answer quickly on how to resolve this. Lots of people sign in at work and it would be a shame if they couldn’t fill their breaks with sewing!

      Thanks for the compliment on the new avatar! I had over a foot of hair cut off so I thought I would update my photo, sport’n a new look. Haha

      Keep sewing with a smile!

      Oh yes, a quick peak and BurdaStyle during my break definitely helps a slow Friday go a little bit faster :)

      Yeah….. If that auto pop up window actually gave me an option to NOT log in, it would be fine. However, I would prefer it only logged in or out of facebook at my specific instruction. I’d rather not see the pop up window at all unless I click “connect”.

    I had to dsiconnect all the Burdastyle functions through my facebook account settings which seems to be working for the moment. However, I think I would have to go change them back in order to login from Burdastyle.

      Ugh, that sucks! I’m talking to our programmers right now to see if we can get this fixed for you. On the plus side your post button should be fixed, that ticket was deployed today. :)

      Yup, the post button works! (but only if facebook is disconnected)
