No posts to Facebook?
Since I was enjoying Duolingo, I went back and connected my account to my Facebook account. I presumed that it would post the cute little icons when I completed units and would announce when I levelled up.
But neither of those are happening.
I'm using the Android app and on the site have the setting "Automatically Share on Facebook".
There must be a bug in the code for the Facebook sharing. I have it checked and sometimes my leveling up gets shared on FB but my last two levels did not show up on FB. Does it matter if I'm logged in to FB with the same browser at the same time? Please fix this bug. It's annoying to complete a level and think it will be shared on FB just to find out that nothing happens.
Not sure if this is the place but I had mine set on post automatically to facebook and now it has posted nothing. I use windows 7 pro and chrome. Not using my android phone at all anymore (hint: because coach is mandatory on that app). Please, would like to have progress posting to facebook, thanks. Let me know if you need more info.
Hi bchan ... any news on when this will start working? I didn't get a reply when I said this still wasn't working 3+ weeks ago, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt and thought maybe your fix might take a few days to take effect ... (but I asked if there was another way for me to test it)
So now nearly a month later I've come to the exciting day when I've worked hard and gone up a level. But there's no automatic post to Facebook. Why is it working for you, but not for me? (Is it working for anyone?)
Woops sorry, I rushed to debug it and missed your questions =D
So when you've checked off "Automatically share on Facebook", whenever you level up or finish a skill, it posts an Open Graph event that says what level you reached or what skill you completed in your activity on Facebook (for others to comment/like). If you don't have it checked off, there is an option in the end screen for you to manually share which will create the same event.
The app vs website question was just to diagnose where the problem was coming from.
As of a few weeks ago, mine has miraculously been working again. I had to go in and break the FB-Duolingo connection (Account Settings --> Profile --> Facebook Connect) then re-establish it and give FB the permissions to post again. It's been working like a charm since! knock on wood
