Updating Two Social Networks At Once: Facebook and Twitter

Hey, there!

I love time-saving software.

And today, I’m going to save you time with all of your tweeting and facebooking, far beyond your current efforts to use these social networks to promote your VO practice.

We cover this in Mastering VO Social Networking, but here’s an overview.

How do you not have to post the same thing twice?

If you engage others in social networking, and you’re on both Twitter and Facebook, you may find yourself tweeting something, and then immediately turning around and updating your status on Facebook with that same content.

You may even copy your tweet, just before you hit the “tweet” button, and then hightailing it over to Facebook to paste the tweet into your “What’s on your mind” box.

Oh, you’re going to love this.

You can have Facebook pull your content from Twitter, so you really only have to do the content work once. Using the Twitter app on Facebook (https://apps.facebook.com/twitter/ – then manage the app via Account Settings –> Apps –> Twitter) you can have Facebook watch your Twitter stream, and pick up your tweets, republishing them as status updates on Facebook. All automatic, 24/7/365.

You can even get more granular: with another Facebook app, Selective Tweets (https://www.facebook.com/selectivetwitter), you can choose to only pull those tweets over that you decide are worth sharing on Facebook by adding #fb to the end of your tweets – all the rest of your tweets will appear in your Twitter stream only.

You may get some push-back from purists who don’t want mixing of the networks, but it’s about your time management, not their way of doing things, right?

Here’s the complete rundown on how to do it at Twitter’s site: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113-how-to-use-twitter-with-facebook – enjoy.

Hope this helps.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
