A Cool Way to Post Tweets To Your Facebook Status

April 12, 2009

I’ve often wanted to post some of my tweets onto my Facebook Fan Page and Profile Walls, but just wasn’t comfortable with all of those conversations showing up on my Walls. A lot of my activities on Twitter are conversations. If most of what I did was post links, I would have been a little more comfortable with the idea.

The other thing to consider is that each time your tweets land in your Status line it travels throughout your Friends’ News Feeds. Imagine what that looks like to them… broken conversations. So, I’ve stayed away from posting my tweets to my Facebook status line.

However, today I came across a solution to my concern… it’s a Facebook app developed by Andy Young. His app is appropriately called the “Selective Twitter.” It allows you to send select tweets to your Facebook Wall by placing “#fb” at the END of your tweet. How neat is that? You can find the app here!

Credits should also go to Nancy Perez. I found this app referenced in a comment by Ian Chapman to her post about Facebook’s new and improved Fan/Brand Pages.

CAUTION: If you’re currently using the regular Facebook Twitter app or some other app to update your Status, remember to remove or disable it so you’re not making double posts of your tweets.

Try out  “Selective Twitter” and let me know what you think.





Conversation Marketing and the New Influentials

April 18, 2008

Are you using outdated marketing methods?

As the world around us changes and technology has its affect on just about everything we touch, media and those that want to reach those who consume it are finding greater challenges than ever before.

It is no longer a world of mass media but rather it is a world of communities of customers and consumers. In an attempt to keep up with the changing world that the Internet has brought, the media world has embraced such things as websites to reach their customers, but it isn’t enough. Consumers have gravitated to social media and that is where Influence is finding a significant home.

Influencers or Influentials are a group of very active consumers involved in “conversation marketing” where word-of-mouth is becoming a significant power in spreading dialog with customers, listeners and viewers. It means creating a conversation with your consumers in which useful information is exchanged so that both parties benefit from the relationship.
