Post Your Quiz Results to Facebook

We’re continuing to give you more options for how to share your quiz results. Last week we brought back BBCode, and today we’re introducing automatic posting to your Facebook. On some of our quizzes, you’ll see a button that will send your result directly to Facebook. When you click, you’ll have the opportunity to edit your result and also add your own comment about the result you got. Below, I’ve added a picture of what our Facebook button looks like, another picture of what the page looks like on Facebook that lets you post the result and finally a picture of what a result will look like once you post it. In the meantime, we’ll be working to enable this on more quizzes and you can just jump right in and share as many of your results as you’d like. Enjoy!

The Return of BBCode

Starting today, we’re happy to give all of our users a new choice for posting quiz results on other web pages. We’ve always offered HTML and today we’re giving you a BBCode option. To get BBCode, take any quiz the same way you always have, but when you go to get code to post, just click on the “BBCode” tab. Here’s a picture of what to look for.

Enjoy the new posting choice, and keep an eye on Blogthings and this blog to see when we add more for you.

Having Trouble Finding Quizzes You Like?

We’ve been working on ways to help you find more relevant quizzes on Blogthings. The first thing we’ve introduced is quiz topics. Anytime you take a quiz, you can find related quizzes on the top right part of the page. Pictured below is an example of what it looks like.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and are able to find more quizzes you are interested in.

Automatically Post Blogthings Quizzes to Myspace

Starting today, you can post Blogthings Quizzes automatically to Myspace.

Some other sites have had this feature for a while, but it was not officially supported by Myspace. We like to play by the rules, so we waited until Myspace gave us a way of doing this.

Any time you take a quiz, look for the button on the results page that says Add to Myspace. Just click on it, and you’re on your way to sharing the quiz you just took with your Myspace friends.
