So yesterday I posted about a social marketing manual for small businesses and I got a couple of questions in regards to the automatic updates from blog to Facebook and from Facebook to Twitter.
Well, here it goes:
If you click on the link above, you’ll watch a video tutorial I made a couple of months ago. Facebook changed A LOT since then, but the concept is the same.
1. Find Your Blog RSS Address
Usually, it will be something like YourBlog.com/RSS. Write it down.
Log into your Facebook account, and click on Notes.
Click on Import Settings (if you’re not importing any RSS, it may show Import Notes)
Then, all you have to do is enter your RSS address into this next form and click IMPORT
Alright. Everytime a new RSS feed goes out (you write a new post), FB will display your post in full, as a new note.
Now, from FB to twitter, it’s even simpler (this is only for Fan pages):
Go to Facebook.com/Twitter
From there, you just have to follow the instructions. Put your twitter log in and password, and you’re good to go.
Remember – Facebook is weird – sometimes it will update Twitter, sometimes it wont. I havent spent enough time to figure it out, but I know it works.
Let me know how it goes for you. Also, I’m thinking $47 for the Social Guerilla Manual. What do you think?
