myfitnesspal how to share on social media

It’s easy to share your fitness activities on either Twitter or Facebook. You’ll have to be on a computer to link your account to Twitter, but you can do the Facebook connecting using your mobile app.

Twitter:

1. Log in to your MFP account (mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app)

2. Once you’ve logged in, click My Home, then Settings, then Facebook/Twitter sharing settings.

3. Click Autopost updates to Twitter. You’ll be asked to provide your Twitter username and password to authenticate the account. Once the site is authorized to post to Twitter, you can select what kinds of MyFitnessPal activity you consider tweet-able.

Facebook:

Note: If you have the Facebook app installed on your device, please ensure it is updated to the latest version before connecting your MyFitnessPal account. Also, you’ll have to set your Diary to Public in order for updates to post to Facebook.

    But my workouts are still not posting. They stopped posting two or three weeks ago. I want my exercise to post, because it motivates my friends.

      have you tried clearing all your spam mail ect….?

      • KathleenFentonMD

        No – didn’t even think of that. I read on MFP that they changed the postings so that they will only post if your diary is made public. I don’t want my diary public, mostly for professional reasons. I mean, I don’t mind if my exercise diary is public but I don’t want my food diary public. I would like them to change it back!

      • KathleenFentonMD

        Hey I played with this today. I temporarily opened my diary to public, logged my exercise and it posted on FB. Then I reclosed my diary LOL. I hope they change it back. It’s not the spam.

    I see that there is sharing for weight loss but not for weight gain… Is this something you might add in the future?
