  4. Enter your uuma username and password on the next screen and click the orange sign in button.
  5. Confirm that you want to link the accounts
  6. Ta Da!  One less password to remember!  The next time you visit just click the facebook connect button and you will be automatically signed in (as long as you are signed in to facebook - if not you will be prompted for your facebook sign in)

How to manage the connection:
  1. Navigate to Profile Home (the first link under the right hand 'My Profile' menu
