Combine your facebook and twitter updates

Having recently created a facebook account, I ran into the problem of too many social media networks. Think about it - there's twitter, facebook, trigga, linkedin, and a bunch of others that I don't subscribe to. I really don't want to have to update my status separately on all these different networks... luckily, you don't have to!

Here's how to combine your facebook and twitter updates (note: this will post your twitter updates to facebook, but not the other way around):

  1. Make sure you have an active twitter account and an active facebook account
  2. Log into your facebook account
  3. Search for "twitter" in the upper right-hand corner
  4. Click on the Applications tab and select the official Twitter application (probably the 1st result)
  5. Select "Go to application" and allow it access to your twitter profile (you will need to provide your twitter account's username and password)
Now, all tweets you post via twitter will appear as facebook status updates. Pretty nifty right? Keep in mind that if you retweet something, the "RT @twittername" will show up in your facebook profile... but that's not such a big deal, is it?

Now you're all set to go. If you'd like to tweet/update facebook on the go (e.g. from your BlackBerry) try using some mobile integration like TwitterMail.
