Twitterfeed is a free service which (among other things) lets users automatically publish blog posts to a Facebook page. As the name implies, Twitterfeed can also be used to automatically post content to Twitter. I’ve found its capabilities unique, however, since it allows publishing of a web feed to a Facebook PAGE instead of just a Facebook personal profile. This is handy when folks in an organization want to post content one time (in this case, to a blog) and have that content cross-post other places for maximum visibility and minimum effort. I’m sure there are other ways to do this, and if you achieve this same functionality with another service or technique please let me know in the comments!
In the following five minute screencast, I demonstrate this process. This requires several things:
- A free account on Twitterfeed
- An active Facebook account, which has admin / administrator rights over at least ONE Facebook page (this can be a page you created or someone else created and later made you an admin on)
- The web feed address of a blog you want to auto-update to the Facebook page
I cross-posted this Screencast to YouTube as well.
Hat tip to Dean Shareski for sharing Twitterfeed and it’s powerful capabilities a few months back!
