Facebook Permissions

We ask for certain Facebook permissions in order to provide our users with personalized results. This page explains what information our app requests access to. It also provides examples of how this information is used.


Your Name

LolSided.com uses the name associated with your Facebook profile to customize the results that we generate.

Example One: "John Bloggs went to the shop." or "Sarah's favorite food is ice cream."

Example Two: If you are using one of our parody tweet generators, we will automatically insert your name into the tweet.

Your Gender

The gender that you listed on your Facebook profile is used to determine what gender pronouns should be used.

Example: "John Bloggs went to the shop because he was hungry." or "Sarah is a woman who likes ice cream."

For some of our results, LolSided may also use your gender information to determine what background image or font color should be used.

Your Profile Picture

LolSided.com may use your profile picture to further customize your results. A lot of our users like having their profile pictures visible on the results that they share, as it adds a personal touch.
