Connecting Twitter with Facebook is one of the best mashups available for Social Media. You get the easy a quick action of Twitter combined with the sticky content that leads to more interactions and connections you get with Facebook.
Following the instructions in this video (darn easy), you activate a Facebook application which accesses Twitter and automatically changes your Facebook status every time you update your Twitter status.
It’s just that easy.
While there are some great tools out there like ping.fm, which will also update your status in a bunch of different places at once, those tools have one drawback: Twitter, Facebook and really any social media site work best when you’re interacting. If you’re using ping.fm, you’re billboarding and little more. It doesn’t matter how profound you think you are, your social media participation is 1 dimensional. I still use ping.fm for exactly the benefit of updating a bajillion places at once, but because Twitter and Facebook are such major social media destinations for me, I make sure that I’m using them regularly in accordance with all of the principals of the social media funnel.
Linking Twitter to Facebook then gives me extra punch for my activities because I regularly interact with people in both places.
