Why are achievements not one of the posting options?

After reading about sharing "in-game accomplishments", I took this to mean achievements as well. Any chance this is coming in a later patch?

Because I want my family seeing how much of my life I waste playing an MMO?

Meh, they probably already suspect.

Before I use this I need to know if the application will spam my friends with invites or start posting by some other reason.

I have seen Facebook game applications start to do things on their own with results of friends getting upset by mindless spamming.

If this feature only posts things I approve myself I will gladly use it but if it posts on its own it is nothing for me.

I have linked my account and yet I see no updates on my Facebook when I level up. I even logged out and back inof both facebook and my SWTOR account and yet it still seems as if they are not connected, even though in the account they are linked correctly.

my concern is that the more the game is open to the internet,the more it can be hacked,while the DEVS are smart,there are groups out there that are professional crackers who work 24/7 trying to find flaws and exploit them.And now they also want to add ingame CC purchase,I can see this as a start of a BIG security problem, Every day we read some company getting hacked/attacked and I am sure they thought they were safe.

For those who are curious, and who didn't read my thread in suggestions, here is a screenshot of what the postings look like when you view your activity log. When you are on your FB page, not your news feed but your profile page, the most recent post will show in that recent activity box. Here is a post on G+ that shows the recent activity box. As for what your facebook friends actually see, I'm not too sure because the one person who responded to my asking said she didn't see anything in her news feed.

It will do a 'start to play' post every single time you log in a character, which is unneeded and annoying. It will do a 'join a guild' post pretty soon after you join a guild. It will do a 'level up' post after you have logged out of that character. It will do a 'create a character' post pretty soon after you create a character. The 'guild rank promotion' one did not post for me but I think it's because the character was promoted while offline (I was logged into a different character). The 'create a guild' one I can't test because I already have a guild for each faction.

It does not post to the timeline. It goes to a small section called Recent Activity. It is there, just not very in your face.
