New nook can't sync with facebook

 

Every time I sync with facebook it just takes me to the mobile site after asking for device name. I want to sync it with facebook to share with my friends. Is anyone else having this problem?

Maybe its just a slow connection. Most people who preordered havent gotten theirs yet. I would expect another day or 2 to verify if others are experiencing this.

Do you have a NOOK Color or an e-ink NOOK?  You caan't have the new second edition NOOK, since thathas no web browser and wouldn't bring you to Facebook's mobile site.

Actually (speaking from hands on experience with the new nook) there is an option under the social settings to link with facebook, gmail and twitter.  I dont have access to wifi at the moment to test it out

Yes, I know.  There is not, however, a web browser to load Facebook's mobile site on.  Unless it  was included even when B&N specifically said it wasn't.  My previous reply was an effort to make sure that the OP was getting the proper help for his/her device, whichever it is.

I have the new e-ink touchscreen one. It does not have a web browser you can access in full, but it does have one. I can go on facebook from it and everything. Twitter connected just fine, gmail works just fine, but facebook doesn't ask for approval, it just takes me to the touch.facebook.com. They are apparently working on it, so we shall see what happens

Re: New nook can't sync with facebook

well I got a nook color last year and i could never figure out why none of my FB friends could share with me . Then i find out after going to my social settings that it had the SAME ACCOUNT ERROR as stated from other users. I don't have the gas to go out to a B&N store just to get your WIFI there to fix the FB account link. Then again you guys have stopped UPDATING NOOK COLOR JUST TO GET US TO TRADE UP! My Nook color IS UPDATED 1.4.3 and it still doesn't fix the problem! I got friends on FB who want to share some books with me but can't cuz your too lazy and called it quits with other nooks over the tablet wars!
