New methods for Tweeting you Facebook status:
Facebook has a feature to allow you to tweet your facebook status update. Here’s how: go to facebook.com/twitter, then link your profile (or page) to your Twitter account.
Once linked, your Twitter account will be updated every time you post a public update to Facebook. Note: Only posts whose privacy you set to Public.
Here are some of my other favorite Twitter and Facebook recommendations:
- How to update your Facebook status with your Twitter tweets
- Publish your tweets as a wordpress blog post
- Twitter Backgounds Made Easy
- Migrating from WordPress.com to a Hosted Solution
- RSS Feeds and Twitter Follow Me for WordPress.com
- Twitter Follower Auto-Responding Email Message
- Completely Unscientific Pie Chart Of Who Uses Twitter/Facebook And Why
- My Social Network Publishing Model
The method below is outdated, but check out some of my other post about Facebook and Twitter
Part I – Find your Facebook status RSS Feed
1. Login into Facebook
2. Go to this link: http://www.new.facebook.com/minifeed.php?filter=11
3. On the bottom right of this page you’ll see “My Status” with a RSS icon next to it. Click this link.
4. At this point, you should be at a listing of you statuses. Copy the URL of this page. It should read something like this (but not this one): http://www.new.facebook.com/feeds/status.php?id=615109271&viewer=615109271&key=e351bebc8c&format=rss20
Part II – Set up and configure Twitterfeed
1. Set up an account on www.Twitterfeed.com. Twitter feed uses OpenID to log in. You can use your existing login info from sites like Google, AOL, Yahoo, or any others listed.
2. Click “go to my twitter feeds (or create a new one)”.
3. Click “Create a new twitter feed”.
4. Paste the RSS URL (from Part I).
5. Uncheck “Include item link (if unchecked, sends tweet without the link)”. There are other options you can set. Change the “check for updates” to 30 minutes.
6. Click “Create” and you’re finished!
Twitterfeed will check for updates every 30 minutes and publish your statuses to your twitter page. It does take a bit (over an hour) for you first statuses to show up as tweets.
