I have two accounts, how do I fix this?
Some users have told us that they have ended up with two accounts by first signing up with email and then logging in with facebook later on. If your primary facebook account is not the same as the email you signed up with we will not be able to link the accounts. To fix this you should disconnect the facebook account that is linked to the wrong email by going to the account settings page and then you should sign in with the other email account and then facebook connect that account. That way you can sign in with facebook and the email with the same account.
