using the set up manager, you can set up all your social networks before you start using the legend.
the htc legend allows you to set up facebook, flickr and twitter accounts for use with htc's friend stream and htc peep social networking services.
you can either set these up using the setup manager when you first turn your legend on, or do it later
setting up social networks with the set up manager
the set up manager will appear when you turn your legend on the first time, or after you've carried out a factory reset of the device.
when the social networking setup screen appears, simply select the social networks you use and enter your username and passwords.
each time you successfully set one up, you'll return to the set up screen to add more accounts.
when you've finished, tap on next.
setting up additional social networks
if you want to add more social networking accounts, or didn't use the set up manager to add accounts, you can do this later through the accounts & sync sub menu in settings.
to set up a new account, select add account.
here, you can choose which you want to set up for use on your legend.
to use the facebook widget on your legend, opt for the facebook for htc sense option.
enter your username and password for the account. if your log in email address is set up on your legend, it should appear as you start typing to save you typing it in again.
beware though, we found that we had to manually change the address from the default @googlemail.com to @gmail.com before it successfully signed us in.
when setting up your flickr account, you will be required to confirm you're downloading the htc flickr downloader from a trusted source.
opt for the second option as the first is sometimes regarded as untrustworthy and access to flickr may not be granted.
when you've set up your accounts, you're ready to start using friend stream
