SAN MATEO, CA — January 18, 2012 — Foodily™, where people curate and share the food they love, announced today that people can now add the Foodily app to their Facebook Timeline to express their love of food. As one the first few companies to launch apps for Facebook Timeline, now when people favorite food on Foodily, post food photos on Foodily or say they’ve made something on Foodily their friends can see these updates right in their Facebook Ticker. In the same way friends see the music people are listening to on Spotify, now they can also discover food friends have “craved”, “made” or “recommend.”

In addition to seeing the foods people love, when people favorite anything on Foodily after adding the Foodily app, what they like will show up as part of their history in their Timeline. This way people can tie food to their life story. With Foodily favorites in their Timeline, it’s easy to discover foods friends were into at different points in time, see what they’ve been making recently and get new ideas.

“This type of social food discovery between friends hadn’t been possible before – it’s the first recipe newsfeed that curates foods you and your friends love,” Said Andrea Cutright, CEO of Foodily. “Now those 44 minutes a day people spend thinking about food can be a shared experience where ideas from friends can inspire your next meal.”

To have favorite recipes or foods appear in the Facebook ticker and saved to their personal timeline, people simply ‘fave’ a recipe in Foodily, from Foodily.com, the Foodily app on Facebook, or the free Foodily app for iPhone.
