I've created a little facebook application for those of you who are into "social networking".

KwonTom Info

If you add it, you'll get a personalised leaderboard showing the times of you and your friends. Friends are only ranked once they've installed the application too... so don't be surprised if at first your leaderboard just has you on it!

It also puts a message in your profile each time you visit your leaderboard, telling the world how you rank against your friends and what your best total time is and what club you're in (if you're in one).

And, theoretically, if you're logged into facebook when you complete one of the current week's puzzles for the first time, it'll log a message to your feed letting friends know you've just solved a puzzle and how long it took you. This might depend on you ticking the "leave me logged in" box on facebook to work properly... I'm not 100% sure! I think you can change privacy settings if you don't want it posting to your feeds... and I've put an automatic limit on it so it can only post one story per day so it won't "spam" if you solve lots of puzzles at once.

One thing to note: if you install this, it'll attempt to contact facebook when you click "done it" for a new weekly puzzle. This might result in the page taking a few seconds longer to display. Don't panic! By this point, your time has been recorded already, so the delay won't add to your solve time.

Enjoy! And post all bugs here... I'm sure there'll be many. Hehe.

I joined too. It's of little use to me though, since none of my contacts are hooked to kwontomloop.
