    The Facebook connect function allows you to link your Facebook account to create an ARRSE user and login to ARRSE, or link an existing ARRSE user account to a Facebook account.

    The pros: your ARRSE posts and activity can be linked to your Facebook wall, and you can easily log in to ARRSE using your existing Facebook account. Other ARRSE users can see your Facebook profile.

    The cons: your ARRSE user is publicly linked to your Facebook one. Therefore if you value anonymity on ARRSE but have a revealing Facebook account then this is not for you!
