Why Send Your Facebook Page Updates To TwitterShould you syndicate your Facebook Page updates to Twitter? Many debate the value of sending updates automatically from one social platform to another. While there are some syndications I advise against, I highly recommend syndicating your Facebook Page to Twitter. This post has my three top reasons for sending your Facebook Updates automatically to Twitter, and a step by step tutorial on how to set up your Facebook to Twitter Syndication.
3 Reasons You Want To Syndicate Your Facebook to Twitter
Syndicating your Facebook Page updates to Twitter offers several advantages for Facebook Page admins including:
- Facebook Syndication Brings New Active Facebook Fans. Skillfully syndicating your Facebook Page Updates to Twitter can draw new Facebook fans to your page who are used to being interactive. Facebook pages need active Fans to succeed with organic reach.
- Facebook Syndication Allows Longer Messages. Skillfully syndicating your Facebook Page Updates to Twitter can allow you to post longer messages that Twitter friends can access by following the link back to Facebook. Basically a form of the Twit Longer App except it drives traffic to your Facebook rather than a third party App.
- Facebook Syndication Save Time. Skillfully posting on Facebook and having it appear on Twitter simultaneously is a big time saver. However, do NOT simply syndicate your Facebook to Twitter and leave it. Twitter audiences are very social and appreciate interaction. You need to show up in person on a regular basis.
