We heard some of you were now on a website called “The Facebook” or “MyFace” or something like that… so we figured we’d make your lives easier! You can now create a new account or sign in to your existing account with Facebook.

How do I sign up with Facebook Connect?
If you’re new to Animoto but an existing Facebook user, then you’re a click away from creating an account and making your first video.

  1. Here is our new Sign Up page. Just click the blue Sign Up with Facebook button to create your account:

  1. You’re all set! In the future, all you’ll need is your Facebook login to sign into your new Animoto account.

What if I’m already an existing user?
If you’re usually logged in to Facebook, you should connect your account as a matter of convenience. You’ll definitely want to in order to retrieve your photo albums from Facebook!

If you’ve never connected your Animoto and Facebook accounts before, you’ll go through steps 2 and 3 like a new user, then we’ll ask you to sign in with your Animoto password if you weren’t already:

You can always reconnect your Animoto and Facebook accounts in the future.
