I know many of you are using both Tweeter and Facebook.
I wanted to know how people are using them together. I noticed that many of my friends update their Twitter account with the same exact updates on Facebook, so it almost makes Twitter just a streamlined version of their Facebook updates.
Others use Twitter and Facebook differently.
I am just now starting to understand how I use them together but was wondering what others think.
For me, Twitter get's general updates about things I am doing and Facebook get's more personal updates because I only accept friends and family on my Facebook.
Many times I follow companies on Twitter or other people who have a similar general interest so I am careful to not make my Twitter updates too personal.
There is a great Facebook app called Selective Twitter. This pulls in any tweets that are tagged with #fb into Facebook. It can get a little annoying if EVERY tweet posts to Facebook, so this is a nice way to be more selective.
LinkedIn just announced a similar service that uses the hash tag #in
So I've had my twitter sync'd to my Facebook well over a year now, and I'm nearing the point where I'm considering changing the sync so it doesn't update my fb status without a #fb hashtag.
Reason being is I've developed a Twitter persona per say and there are specific tweets that appear to be jibberish to those reading my updates on FB. Also, There's a separate audience, and I've found I'd rather tweet about some topics that would stir debate (in a negative fashion) if it was on FB.
Great comments so far. Vin is the one who is making me use Twitter more. :-)
I want to use Twitter for more general updates and Facebook for personal updates. Many of my tweets go to Facebook but not all of them and updates that I consider personal go to Facebook but Never on Twitter.
I think this guy has the right idea.
What happens if YouTube, Twitter and Facebook merge?
