computer question

i clicked on the facebook icon at the right of a post i wanted to share with my niece, the caramel one, and then wanted to share the cinnamon roll post with a friend so i clicked on the facebook icon again by that post, logged in on facebook as it askd, and it put up the post for the caramel again. i backed up, logged off tfl, and relogged back in an tried again..it did the same thing three times. what am i doing wrong?

I dont think we ever paid attention to how those buttons work or used them before. I just tested it with this post and, as I'm already logged into Facebook, it simply gave me an embed-link status update page which then posted an update to my profile with a link to this page. Clicking that button doesnt have anything to do with you having to login or out of TFL - but evidently Facebook wants you to be logged in to your facebook account to post there - so evidently something about the way your browser is set up is not holding your account logged in (maybe go to Facebook and login and be sure you're logged in first?) - but we cant tell you much about how that works as we have nothing to do with how the facebook login thing functions.

I've found that my StumbleUpon toolbar is easier to use when I want to post something to Facebook. And yes, you do need to be logged into your FB account in order to post anything. There is a Share button in the Stumble toolbar for FB and Twitter.

Sorry, Stumble Upon is an add-on you can get for some browsers. If you use Firefox, it's easy to get under the Tools menu.
