Second Life Share - Facebook


Second Life Share is also available for Twitter and Flickr.

 

Opting in to Second Life Share for Facebook

The first time you use SL Share, we guide you through the process of opting in.  Unless you remove or delete the SL Share app on Facebook, you will not need to opt in again:

  1. Choose Me > Post to Facebook to open the Post to Facebook window.
  2. Click the Account tab of the Post to Facebook window.
  3. Click the Connect button.
  4. Follow the steps to accept or decline the App Request.  You must accept in order for Second Life to share your status updates, uploaded photos, and Second Life location with Facebook.
  5. Follow the steps to accept or decline the Permissions Dialog.  This allows you to set privacy settings for SL Share.  The default is set to "Friends", but it can also be set to "Only Me" or you can customize or exclude Facebook friends from seeing your posts.
