more and more businesses are creating facebook pages to engage with their customers (and yeah, to sell stuff too). businesses and organizations then face the challenge of populating that page with a regular stream of new content. one option? “cross-pollinate” twitter. if the business and/or its employees have a twitter presence, that content can flow into the facebook page. on the other hand, we’ve all seen less successful versions of this on geeky friends’ profile pages.
Here are a few ways to get the tweets you want, where you want them, on your facebook page.
twitter’s own facebook application
twitter has an application on facebook that provides a two-way connection between the services. that is, your twitter messages show up in your stream, and you can have your facebook status updates show up in your twitter stream. pretty decent if you are not an active twitterer and/or all your tweets are on point and standalone. not for the “@randomdude: rofl – that’s what your mom said” crowd.
I like this one a lot. it consists of a facebook application that you install. after that, you add a #fb to any tweets you want to show up on facebook, and they do.
