How To Auto-Post Between Facebook & Twitter
It’s been quite a while now since I published the original ‘How to Connect Facebook to Twitter” post and it is still very popular. In the time since I first wrote the article however, both social networks have made changes to their design and navigation, so I decided I would revamp the guide with up to date instructions and screenshots.
So if you are here to discover how to connect Twitter to Facebook (or vice versa) to auto post between social networks then read on.
Whether you connect Twitter to post on Facebook or Facebook to post to Twitter is up to you, it really depends on which network you prefer to be on. Do not connect the same two accounts both ways though or it will result in a loop, with an update posted on Facebook going to Twitter, then Twitter bouncing back to Facebook and so on.
We will start with auto posting from Facebook to Twitter, scroll down if you would rather learn how to auto post tweets onto Facebook.
