How to Connect Your Twitter and Facebook Account, and Vice Versa


By Tena Šojer, January 17, 2016

Let us assume you’ve listened to our advice and started your own blog. Your blog might be fun, engaging, well written, you write new posts all the time, but you don’t seem to be getting many visitors at all?

Well, let’s look at the average Joe on the Internet these days. Joe is often online, surely daily, and he checks his email, Facebook profile, Twitter account and Instagram. Maybe he even checks some news’ website he’s used to and plays some tunes on YouTube. However, Joe doesn’t know your blog exists. At most, he’s maybe stumbled upon your link somewhere, but Joe is not about to type it – Joe is lazy. He might click on it if he saw it and it seemed fun, but where is Joe going to see that your blog is up and that you have a great new post out? What is Joe’s hangout place online? You need to be there!

You need to be present on the social networks to best connect with your fans. The most common social networks used are Twitter and Facebook and many people use both. However, you may find it challenging to juggle your blog and two networks. Connecting your two profiles makes things a bit easier for you as your updates on one social network simultaneously appear on the other- basically, you are virtually in two places at the same time. How about that?  You can link your Facebook account to your Twitter account or vice versa, depending on which network you use more.

Connecting Your Facebook Account with Twitter

If you feel more comfortable using Facebook and will post most of your updates there, go to this site.

Step 1. You can either create a profile for your blog (where you add friends) or a page (where you get fans). Log in and go to Facebook/Twitter to connect your accounts. If you decide to link your profile, click on the bold link as shown below. If you want to link to your page, click on the link underneath.

Step 2. You will be asked for various permissions and to continue you need to click the „Authorize app“  button.

Voila, your two accounts are now connected.

Step 3. All you need to do next is decide which updates you want to share on both networks. Just check or un-check some of the following, depending on what you want to share: status updates, photos, notes, videos, links, and events. If you don’t want any of those categories to be linked, and therefore shared, on your Twitter, unclick them and select “Save changes.”

Do note that only those posts marked as “public” will appear in your Twitter feed!

Connecting Your Twitter Account with Facebook

Step 1. If Twitter is your social weapon of choice, go to your Twitter page and click on settings.

Step 4. A window will appear asking you to grant some permissions if you want to link the two Accounts. Click „Okay“ a few times and you are all set.

    This is really helpful, but I am facing another problem. In the twitter dashboard, under apps, the FB profile connected is a really old profile and no one in the team seems to have it’s access. But the only way we can change the FB profile is by first revoking access by logging in from the older account. Hence it’s become impossible to crack! Can anyone guide me here?
    Really appreciate!
    Best

      Hi Banwari,

      Hi Himanshu,

      Check out this article, they have an up-to-date tutorial on how to connect both your Facebook profile and Facebook page to your Twitter account. If that does not work, consider using a third-party service, like Buffer that allows you to schedule both tweets and FB posts at the same time. It should gove you more freedom on choosing where you want the tweet or post shared.

      Hope this helps 🙂
      Sanja
