Connect your Facebook account to Google+ Connected Accounts list


Having trouble connecting your Facebook account to your Google+ connected accounts? That's because you've changed your Facebook user ID to something easy to remember, like http://www.facebook.com/nickiminaj - Follow these steps I figured out from some trial and error:
  • Click on your profile picture on Facebook
  • In the address bar, you'll see http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=followed by a bunch of numbers
  • After the last period, you'll see eight or more numbers, this is your user ID before you changed it to something easy to remember
  • I searched for a friend who hadn't changed their ID to get the link necessary, and found this:
  • Simply plug your user ID you just found to the end of that address, and go to your account settings menu, then click "Connected accounts"
  • Add that whole address with your user ID at the end to the Facebook link, and select (or not) "Add this link to my public Google Profile, too" and click "Add" to the right to finish!

Now all we need to figure out is how to ACTUALLY connect the two, by being able to post from TweetDeck or something similar where you can link all your social networking accounts together!  Unfortunately, since TweetDeck was recently acquired by Twitter, I don't see that happening for that program......
