How to Link Twitter and Facebook Accounts

January 15, 2009

in social networking

by Tina Gasperson

Social networking is great for keeping in touch with friends and business contacts, and for getting the word out about your latest project – or just your latest vacation. Sometimes it can get difficult to manage all your online social activity, though. For example, once you’ve updated your status in Twitter, you still have to remember to update your status on Facebook because not everyone who follows you on Twitter is also your friend on Facebook. To keep up with all of that, you might find yourself spending more time online than you want to. Alternatively, you can grab a simple application that will automatically update Facebook at the same time you update Twitter, and vice versa.

First, get the Facebook application. To activate it, click on Go To Application, and then click Allow. The app will prompt you to input your Twitter username and password. Do that and click “Login.” The first thing you’ll see is an interface similar to that which you’d see if you were at the home page. There is a place to enter your “tweet,” and a log of all your friends’ tweets below that. If you’re content with updating Twitter automatically from your Facebook account, then this is as far as you need to go. If you’d like to have Twitter automatically update your Facebook status, then look at the upper right hand corner of the page and click on “Allow Twitter to Update Your Facebook Status.” Confirm your choice, and you’re set.

Once you’ve installed the Twitter-Facebook app, it won’t take long for you to determine which “direction” works best for you – updating from Twitter to Facebook, or updating Twitter from Facebook. Deciding which direction you want to go depends on which service you use more. If you send mobile updates via your phone to Twitter all day, then it just makes sense to use Twitter to update Facebook. If you’re in front of the computer screen all day and have access to Facebook, then you might want to take advantage of that. The only drawback in using Facebook is that to update your Twitter status you have to enter it into the Twitter application directly – simply updating your Facebook status on your profile page won’t make update your Twitter. Even so, you’ll see that linking Twitter and Facebook accounts helps take some of the work out of social networking.

This can be also one of the causes why most people choose adjustable bench
in the market. If a person is unusually short or tall,
the piece will need adjusting to accommodate the difference from an average player.
t see what you are looking in one place, you may move
and look through other merchants.

Your body should always portray a confident image and your hands
should be flexible and never stiff. This is the sound characteristics of modern transistor circuits,
and retro classic tube equipment but because of its slow rotation rate
(slewrate) and with soft voices. Even though the aesthetic quality of
the sound is state of the art, it is the way the sounds should behave but cannot because they
are fixed recordings that is the fundamental problem of digital pianos.

The existence of a pair of seats definitely makes the assisting uncomfortable.
This allows player of various height, build or age to comfortably sit and be in optimum position at the piano keyboard.
I personally like the cloth seat above a leather
or vinyl seat prime due to the fact of the
capacity of the cloth to breathe.

intelligently about. I am very happy that I came
