Thank you for your continued support.
I’d like to share about how to edit the Facebook ID on your profile, because I’ve just had a inquiry about it.
1. Go to your home on Facebook, and check the last line of the URL after “/”. This is your Facebook ID.
2. Go to your home on Lang-8, point to your user name in the upper right-hand corner, and then click on ‘Edit Profile’ in the drop-down menu.
3. Type in your Facebook ID and select the ‘Access Settings’. Click on the ‘Submit’ button. And then you’re done.
4. Go to someone’s profile, and click the Facebook ID. You’ll then be taken to Facebook automatically.
Thank you for your continuing support.
You can let the writer of an entry know quickly that you like the entry by clicking on its ‘Like’ button. Click on an entry’s ‘Like’ button to let the author of the entry know how you feel about it.
1. There is a ‘Like’ button displayed in the lower left corner of every entry. Click on it.
2. The message “You like this entry” is shown after clicking the button.
3. The notification is shown next to your user name in the upper right corner, when someone clicks on the button of your entry.
Let’s try to use this button!
*You can’t cancel the click.
* Notifications of comments or corrections are shown at the top of your home page as usual.

Are you using the ‘Add Favorite’ function now? You can keep your favorite users listed with this function. If you haven’t added these users as friends, you can still check out the journals you’re interested in or find useful. You can correct the journals of people you aren’t friends with by using this function and hopefully add them to your friends list.
1) Go to the homepage of the user you want to add.
2) Click on the ‘Add Favorite’ button at the bottom of the user’s photo.
3) You will be asked, “Do you want to add the following members to your Favorites?” Choose “Yes”.
You can manage your ‘Favorites’ list and check its status by selecting the ‘Favorites’ option on the drop-down navigation panel.
And you can also choose ‘Show’ or ’ Hide’ to manage the “Latest entries from your Favorites.” We hope that this function will help you improve your language skills. :)
Thank you for supporting us.

Thank you very much for using Lang-8.
Lang-8 is a language exchange web service, so it is very important that users not only enjoy receiving help from native speakers, but also correct other user’s entries in return.
So we decided to change the system so that the more you correct the more corrections you receive.
If you correct many entries and get L points, your entry will be shown at a higher line on the “Correct” page.
In particular, you can get L points when you are correcting other’s entries, receive thanks points, or get a native nods.
Your L point rankings are based on the amount of L points earned in the past three days.
The more you correct and the higher the quality of your corrections (as is evaluated by other users), the more L points you will receive. Additional rules regarding the L point system will be added later.
We hope this new system will help you, as well as increase the corrections on your entries.
*This change applies only to “Correct” page, but not “My Home”.
Premium users’ entries are still shown higher on My Home’s column as it was before.
You can confirm your L points on the “My Home” page or your profile page.
Thank you very much,
