Your Blog, Facebook, Twitter, and You – It’s Easier Than it Seems

Why aren’t your blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account talking to each other?  It’s probably because you haven’t introduced them to each other yet.  There are a couple of ways you can do this, and most of them are easier than you think.

  1. WordPress – If your blog is on the WordPress platform, there are a number of wordpress plugins that will automatically post your new blog posts to your Twitter and Facebook.  If you go “Add Plugins” and do a search, you are sure to find a bevy that will get the job done.
  2. Feedburner – If you use Google Feedburner, there is a way to publish to your Twitter account through them.  If you go to “Publicize” and click on “Socialize”, there are a few things you can fill out and it will get the job done.
  3. The New Twitter button – You may have read about Twitter working with TweetMeme and creating the official Twitter button.  You could install this button on your site, and then use it manually to Tweet each of your blog posts.  Read more about the new Twitter button HERE.
  4. Networked Blogs – I don’t know too much about how Networked Blogs works with Facebook, but I know that a lot of bloggers use it as a method for posting their new blog posts on Facebook.
  5. Ping.fm – Ping.fm is a really easy way to connect your blog to multiple social networking sites.  Create an account, adjust some of the settings, install the Ping button, and you can ping any of your new blog posts to the social networks you have added.  This is great if you want to be selective with which blog posts you want to push through to Twitter and Facebook.

Each of these methods are an easy way to get your blog posts out there.  Are you already pushing your new blog posts through to Twitter and Facebook?  Are you using a method other than the ones here?  Let us know in the comments below.

  1. One word of caution to eager social media beavers — it’s good to use some common sense when planning how your blog, Facebook and Twitter will interact. For example, if your tweet 10+ times a day, you might want to consider NOT having all of those sent to Facebook.

    Thanks for a thorough list of ways to do it. I’ve begun to start groups on Facebook that relate to my site because I want people to visit my blog-not read it on Facebook. But Twitter’s O.K.

    I use blogger and tried to set it up and it didn’t work? Does blogger not work?

    Good read Aaron!I, personally, at this time, use HootSuite to integrate my favorite social media outlets and have HootSuite set up to automatically post my new blog posts to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.I also agree with you and Jennifer on making sure that everything posted to Twitter does not go to Facebook. Another reason I am enjoying the use of HootSuite is that I can upgrade my status and select where I wish it to go. One, two or all three of the social apps I have installed.Love your NEW look! Clean and crisp! ;)Oh, and don’t you just LOVE the Wibiya bar??? OMGosh, it’s better than sliced bread! 😀
