Connecting Twitter and Facebook – A Bad Idea?
As social media evolves and new tools are created, time management becomes more important to keep all of your social media activities under one roof. Thus social aggregators like www.friendfind.com, www.profilactic.com, and www.socialthing.com are important tools to organize all the confusion.
Both Twitter and Facebook are popular social media tools and both work very effectively in there own ways, but lately the two worlds are colliding. Now you can have your wall posts from your facebook page tweet directly to your twitter.com account and vice versa. Sure it’s a wonderful feature for time management, but don’t jump the gun and click the link to save time. As Matthew Greeley, the CEO of brightidea.com is quoted in Twitter for Dummies, ““Facebook is closed, Twitter is open. Facebook is structured, Twitter is scattered. Facebook is people you’ve known, and many you might have wanted to forget; Twitter is people you never knew, but might have wanted to meet.
Take a step back and think about your social media strategy? Are your facebook fans the same people following you on twitter? Are those engaging you on your fan page the same people engaging you on your twitter profile? So, the question for me is should this blog be posted on twitter and facebook? See, that is when social media can get confusing. Since the article is engaging to both by fans and followers I will post it on both social media sites.
