Exciting news -- thanks to the hard work of our fantastic team of developers, you can now save recipes from FOOD52 to your Facebook Timeline! The screenshot above is what the app looks like; we hope you'll use it to share your favorite recipes with your Facebook friends.

Using the tool is easy:

• There's a new button on the left of each recipe page: Save to Facebook.

• When you click on that button, you'll be asked to log into Facebook (if you aren't already).

• Then, and you only have to do this once, you'll be asked to authorize the FOOD52 Timeline app. We promise that we'll never, ever post to your Facebook wall without your knowledge.

• After you've authorized the app, it will post to your wall in a special FOOD52 box. It's an easy way to share your favorite recipes!

We'd love to hear what you think of the app. Let us know if you have comments or questions!
