Setting Up Facebook on Your Mac
You must be running OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 or later on your Mac. Earlier versions of the Mac OS don’t include Facebook integration. If you haven’t yet upgraded to one of the versions of OS X that support Facebook, you’ll find a link to installation instructions in the “Our Expert Recommends” section at the bottom of this article.
Once you have the latest version of OS X installed, we can get started.
- Launch System Preferences by clicking the System Preferences icon in the Dock, or selecting System Preferences from the Apple menu.
- In the System Preferences window that opens, select the Mail, Contacts & Calendars preference icon or the Internet Accounts icon, depending on the version of OS X you’re using.
- When the Mail, Contacts & Calendars or Internet Accounts preference paneopens, click the Facebook icon on the right side of the pane.
- Enter your Facebook username and password, and click Next.
- An information sheet will drop down, explaining what will happen when you sign into Facebook from your Mac.
- First, your list of Facebook friends will be added to your Mac’s Contacts app, and then kept in sync. If you prefer, you can turn off syncing between Contacts and Facebook; we’ll show you how, below.
- Facebook events will be added to your Calendar app.
- Next, you’ll be able to post status updates to Facebook from any Mac app that supports this capability. Mac apps that currently support Facebook include Safari, the Notifications Center, iPhoto, Photo, and any app that includes the Share button or icon.
- Finally, apps on your Mac will be able to access your Facebook account, with your permission.
If you wish to enable Facebook integration with your Mac, click the Sign-in button.
