Hello Marieke,

As long as the email address associated with your IMDb account matches the email address associated with your Facebook account, they can be connected so that you may use your Facebook credentials to sign in to your IMDb account.

To do so, please sign in to your IMDb account and visit your Linked Accounts settings page here:
     https://www.imdb.com/preferences/thirdpartylinks

Then, select the "Link your Facebook account" option to connect your IMDb and Facebook accounts.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

Hi Claire,

Thank you for your quick reply! That is very unfortunate, I used different e-mailaccounts. The trouble is that I used both over the past years and I don't want to lose my history and ratings by ending one of the accounts...

Thank you! The problem gets even more complicated. I did everything it said in the manual. Now I'm trying to change my e-mailaddress to the address I use for Facebook. And that doesn't work, it keeps saying that is has already been taken. When I try to login, it says: There was a problem. We cannot find an account with that email address.

I give up.

Hey Marieke,

I'm sorry you're still experiencing difficulties. Based on your description, it sounds like you may have an unused account registered to your preferred email address. To avoid posting your email address here since this is a public forum, please log in to your existing account (the one with your ratings and lists that you'd like to keep), and contact us via this form:

http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/contact_form?subject=GS%20fallback

In your message, feel free to reference my name as well as this Get Satisfaction thread for reference, and provide us with the email address you're attempting to change to (the one matching your Facebook account), so that we can research your account(s).

Thanks in advance! We look forward to assisting you further.
