More and more websites have begun to implement Facebook Connect as an easy way for new users to post content without having to sign up for a separate account. It’s an intuitive system that combines all of a person’s activities under one account, and is one that, according to Inside Social Games, can now be expanded into the world of OMGPOP.com, the semi-social website that already offers a multitude of games, friend lists, and other social networking standards.
By activating Facebook Connect on OMGPOP, users will be able to link their accounts and share their accomplishments via their Facebook Feed, as well as import their profile pictures into the site. Where the system becomes truly interesting for OMGPOP users, however, is in the incentive you have for connecting your accounts in the first place.
Just for logging in with Facebook Connect, each user will receive 3,000 coins, OMGPOP’s virtual currency, which can be used to buy power-ups for the site’s games, or items that help improve and customize profiles. A small amount of coins can be earned through normal activity on the site, as well as by outright purchasing them or completing online offers. That being the case, receiving the coins in bulk, for free, is nothing to scoff at.
If 3,000 coins won’t hold you over, link your AIM account to OMGPOP to receive an additional 1,000 coins, and finally, become a fan of the site’s Facebook page to earn another 1,000. 5,000 coins for a few clicks of the mouse – not bad.
