Use of social media is increasing day by day. And therefore, one may want to harness the power of social media to the full extent. But its not wise to manually keep on posting at all places, and thereby wasting time and energy. Did you know that you can automate the process of posting Twitter updates on facebook. That means that whenever twitter status is updated, that same tweet will also be posted on your facebook wall. So in short, you just post your update (also said as Tweet) on twitter and that same update will be posted automatically on your facebook account also. Looks cool, right. Here’s how to do this:
We will be using an application for this purpose. This is the official twitter application.
- Login to facebook and from the search bar at the top, search for “twitter”. Or click here to directly open this app. If you are already logged in, then you will see this below screen. Click on Allow.
- Now this application will prompt you to sign in with your twitter account. Click on Sign in with twitter.
- Enter twitter username and password and click on Allow.
- The last step. You will get a message which says “Your Facebook & Twitter accounts are connected”. Check mark that “Facebook profile” box. A new window will again open and will prompt you for giving this application the permission to post to your facebook wall. Again, click on Allow. And that’s done.
Isn’t this process really easy. Bloggers or webmasters who want to increase the exposure of their sites, will find this method very useful, plus it can save their time to manually post links at both places – twitter and facebook.
So now whenever you Tweet, that same tweet will also be posted to your facebook wall. There’s one small point worth noting, and I don’t know if it can be called a minus point or not, but whenever a reply is made to someone on twitter, that same update won’t be posted on facebook. Reason? Because it’s a reply, not a tweet, well at least this application considers it this way. Go ahead and try this method. Why post manually at both places, when process can be automated, right.
