why connect facebook with platoon
Before we go too far, let’s see why you’d want to connect your facebook and platoon accounts. connecting them has some benefits:
find friends to travel with: If other friends have connected their platoon accounts, they will appear on your screen to add them when you click “find friends”. Facebook friends are not automatically added to your squad’s friends list, so you will have the opportunity to request them as friends.
share workouts on facebook: Connecting your account to facebook will also give you the ability to share your workout on social media. you can choose to have the workouts published automatically or do it yourself after a ride.
how to connect platoon with facebook
connecting platoon with facebook is easy to do!
on your bike or treadmill, click on profile settings, then scroll down to social networks.
You will see an option to activate social connections like facebook and strava.
Click the checkmark next to Facebook to turn on the Facebook connection.
once the checkmark is selected, a box will appear allowing you to log in to facebook. type your facebook username and password and click login.
The next screen will ask if you would like to continue and sync Peloton and Facebook. Click continue.
You’ll return back to the Peloton settings screen and the checkmark will remain meaning the Facebook connection is successful!
Something to note is that your Peloton log in will remain the same and connecting with Facebook won’t change your login name or password.
share your training on facebook
once your platoon account is connected, at the end of the ride you will have the option to share your training and you can choose to share it on facebook, strava or fitbit.
To share on Facebook, click the Share on Facebook. A popup will come up and let you type in a status update, and then decide if you share it on your newsfeed or stories (or both!).
Once you’re all set typing in what you want to appear (or you can leave it blank), click Post and it’ll post to your Facebook feed. Here’s how it’ll look on your feed:
I have noticed sometimes instead of having a preview of the workout with your stats, sometimes it’ll just post a link and no preview. I’m really not sure what causes it to do that and when it happens I’ll usually just delete and try it again.

disconnect your account
If you no longer want to sync your accounts, you can go back to settings and uncheck the check mark next to facebook and it will unsync. anything you’ve posted in the past, however, will remain in your newsfeed.
I have noticed that sometimes my account gets disconnected at random times and I will have to re-authorize facebook to connect. this happens maybe every few months for some unknown reason.
how to find facebook friends in platoon

While it’s not necessary to sync your platoon account with facebook, it can be a fun way to make your platoon experience more social. I hope this guide helps you!
