Having to update your Facebook and Twitter account doesn’t have to be a tedious task. Instead of logging-in separately on both social media accounts to just post the same message, there’s a “workaround” that you CAN do to help you in hitting two birds in one stone.
What “workaround” am I referring to..? I’m talking about connecting your Twitter account to your Facebook status updates.
This simple yet very efficient technique will help you save a lot of time in keeping both your social media accounts up to date.
Here’s what you need to do to connect both accounts:
- First, you need to log in to your Facebook account.
- Then go to apps.facebook.com/twitter/ (or type in “Twitter” on the search box on Facebook.)
Click the large yellowish button on the middle that says “Go to your Twitter profile settings to start”
- After you click that button, it should open a new tab that goes to your Twitter profile settings (Login on Twitter first if they require you to).
- On the bottom right part of the page, you’ll see the “Connect to Facebook” button. You need to click it.
- A pop-up will then appear with the “okay” and “cancel” button. You have to click “okay”
- That should connect your Twitter to your Facebook account. You have to click the “save changes” button on Twitter to complete the process.
- If you try Twitter at this post, you it’ll also post it automatically in your Facebook’s timeline. I suggest that you try it just to make sure that you did everything correctly.
Following these steps will allow your tweets to be posted on Facebook automatically. Now on the flip side, here’s what you need to do to have your posts on Facebook get Tweeted automatically.
- Click this link facebook.com/twitter
- Click authorize app
- It will then take you to a customization page where you can un-click the contents that you don’t want to be tweeted like posts, photos, events, etc…
- Click the “Save changes” button
Start increasing your productivity by “semi-automating” your Twitter and Facebook updates. Instead of having to log-in both accounts, you can apply the steps above and do the update on one account only.
