Social Media Connect: How to Link Your Site to Facebook and Facebook to Twitter

These days, social media integration is a must—so much so that even news sites, for instance, use Facebook or Twitter as an extension of their operations. Social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter get millions of views per days—and those who use these networks spend hours on their profiles. Basically, you want to be where the eyeballs are.

So how do you link your website to your Facebook and Twitter accounts?

First off, make sure you have a Facebook “Like” page. When a person likes your page, every content you post will appear on their News Feeds. The same goes for Twitter: you need to have a Twitter account. Even a person follows your account, your tweets will appear on their timelines.

Now, there are two ways to link your site to Facebook. First, you can use the Facebook badges available on the Facebook page. These badges will allow you to add a “like” button on your website and share Facebook information on your page.

And then you can use plugins or widgets so your page will share buttons. These buttons, when clicked, will automatically post the said page or content as a Facebook content—hence the term sharing. Every friend of your visitor who shares your page or content will see that particular “share,” hence increasing the possibility for more views. Plugins and widgets can also do the same for Twitter and other social media accounts.

Now, once your Facebook is integrated with your site, you can link your Facebook to your Twitter.

Simply search for the Twitter app on Facebook and allow it to link your FB to your Twitter. With this, you can make posts on Twitter that will automatically be posted on Facebook.

Why should you do this integration? Simple: to make handling both accounts easier.

In general, social media connection and integration can make you transmit a message and content easier and more convenient. So convenient, in fact, that you make other people do it. Of course, to do this, you have to create content that will beg to be shared. Nonetheless, it’s best to have the tools there when it is needed.
