Twitter Has Improved Its Facebook Integration: Post to Pages

13 June 2012

For a long time, you have been able to link your Twitter account to your Facebook account, but recently Facebook announced some new features, most notably, the ability to post to Facebook Pages instead.

How to Post to Facebook Pages:

Instead of simply posting to your personal profile, you can now post to your Facebook Page. To do this, go to your Twitter Profile Settlings.

NOTE: If you currently have the Twitter / Facebook integration turned on. You might have to disconnect it and reconnect it to see the Facebook Pages option.

At the bottom of your Profile Settings, you’ll find the Facebook connection option. Click the sign in button to get started.

A pop-up will appear and you’ll be prompted to log in to Facebook. Click the log in button.

On the next screen, you’ll see a list of your pages that the integration can log into.

 

Once you confirm this, the pop-up will close and you can now adjust the settings in your Twitter Profile. You can uncheck the option to post to your personal wall and select the page you want your updates to go to.

Click “Save Changes” when you’re done.

Now, whenever you post to Twitter, your posts will also appear on your Facebook Page. However, do not that @replies, standard retweets and your direct messages will not appear on your Facebook page. In addition, if you post a photo to Twitter, it will also appear directly in your Facebook update.

Here’s an example of a cross-post with an image.
