Okay so you tweet and then you have to update your Facebook status. But how about doing both at one time? We’re talking about post once on several social media pages.

I get the question often, can’t I just post on one page and it takes care of my Facebook and twitter account.

The answer is “YES”.

There are two sites that make it easy to do one post on several pages. Foursquare, Tweet deck and Instagram.

Foursquare is a free app that is used as a locator. It lets your friends know where you are located.

20 million people worldwide use this app, with over 2 billion check-ins.

With foursquare you check-in and you can leave a message just like Facebook.

Now here’s where foursquare allows you to post on several place.  Once you create an account, go to settings and click onto “sharing with other networks “.

You can connect with Facebook and with your tweeter account, then you can check- and post to Facebook and Tweeter at the same time.  

Tweet deck offers the opportunity to past on numerous social media accounts at one time.
Once you download the app, you have to go into settings and add Ttwitter or Facebook account.

Once you complete the process, click on the quill in the box. Notice my numerous twitter and Facebook accounts are available. Whichever ones are in blue, are the accounts that your message will post to. Remember this is twitter, so only 140 characters.
