You’ve probably noticed that, like OpenTable, your Facebook interface has a new look. To celebrate these mini-makeovers, OpenTable now allows you to bring the fun of Facebook with you when you’re making restaurant reservations. With Facebook Connect, you can sign in to Facebook and OpenTable with just a single click. You can also create an OpenTable account by clicking” Connect” and creating a password for your OpenTable account.
A natural fit because dining is such a social activity, Facebook Connect allows you and your friends to share what you’re doing on OpenTable. You can see who’s connected and which friends like which restaurants via the “Like” button.
And, stay tuned for the ability to read your Facebook friends’ reviews, comments, and, with permission, their reservations! For example, when you go to a restaurant’s profile page, such as Marc Forgione, you’ll be able to see which of your friends have shared reviews of that restaurant.
Facebook Connect works with OpenTable in the same way it does with other connected accounts. You control your privacy settings and can amend them at any time. You can also remove the OpenTable Connect application from your Facebook account with a click.
In the meantime, we invite you to try out Facebook Connect on OpenTable for a more communal dining experience.
