Over the last week we’ve done a huge amount of work on our account management system and have been able to integrate Facebook Connect meaning that you can now create a Photoswarm photo website, or sign in to your existing site, with your Facebook account.

If you’ve already got a site that you signed up to with a conventional email address and password, we’ve also built a functionality to link this up to your Facebook login the next time you access it, should you wish to.

This also lays the foundation for a deeper integration with Facebook in the future. Expect photo synchronisation, inviting friends, status updates and more.
