    This is what the FB integration page looks like to me, tried w/ both IE and FF, there is nowhere to enter my username and password.

    If i hit the Associate w/ button I get a blank page w/ this on it:

    { "error": { "type": "OAuthException", "message": "Error validating application." } }

    You can basically do 1 click logins with your Facebook account. Plus you can do interesting things with friends that are signed in here, post things from the forum to your wall. I will get an official list of things you can do and update the 1st post.
