Facebook Connect is a way for you to link your Facebook account to Kickstarter so that you don't need to create a new account. You can also follow your Facebook friends on Kickstarter to see what projects they back.
Creating a Kickstarter account through Facebook is easy — you’ll be given the option at the bottom of our Sign up page. Kickstarter will also use the same email address linked to your Facebook account so you don’t even have to remember a new password.
Already have a Kickstarter account and would like to connect it to Facebook? Simply head to your Account settings and click the “Continue with Facebook” button to activate this feature.
As a creator, if you turn on Facebook Connect, your Facebook username and friend count will be displayed in your Kickstarter bio. This helps backers learn more about the people behind the projects they support, and builds trust between the backer and creator.
If having your Facebook profile a click away makes you uncomfortable, you can either adjust your privacy settings on your Facebook profile, or disconnect from Facebook through your Account settings.
In the event that you delete a Facebook account that was still connected to your Kickstarter account, you will be able to log in using the email address and password originally tied to that Facebook account. If you don't remember your password, or if it's not working, you can request a password reset by clicking the 'Forgot your password?' link on the Log in page.
