I focus almost 50% of my social media time spent on Facebook (the other 50% on Pinterest). Twitter kind of just gets left out sometimes. But I think its important to have a presence there. But we’ll save those reasons for another day.
Social Media Efficiency:
In order to maximize my time spent, everything I post on my Facebook page gets streamed over to Twitter. Unless you’re already very active on Twitter, this is a great starting place for you to have a presence on Twitter to gain followers.
Sync Facebook Page Updates with Tweets on Twitter
Here’s how to set that up to make it happen (make sure you’re logged into both Facebook and Twitter first):
- Go to https://www.facebook.com/twitter/. You will see your profile, along with any pages that you admin.
- Select the page on Facebook that you want to sync with Twitter by clicking on the “Link to Twitter” button.
- Authorize the Twitter App.
- Select what you want to show up in your twitter stream.I selected the following, but you can sync whatever you like!
- Status Updates
Test out what how it works! Post a status update (or something else that you selected to include) on your Facebook Page. Head over to Twitter and see your update there!
You will see the same update in both your Facebook updates and your Twitter stream!
Facebook changes their system constantly (and Twitter does too, occasionally), so if you notice that the steps are different or if something just isn’t right, let me know in the comments and I’ll update the tutorial!
