Tips & Tricks for Linkedin and Facebook Blogging

Although Linkedin and Facebook are not very similar sites, there are many features that you can combine in both of them which will make them work very well together. There is a lot of overlap between Facebook and Linkedin even though they are designed for different purposes – Linkedin is more a place to find and look for work while Facebook is mostly used for entertainment. This is not to say that you shouldn’t combine them and make them work together to save you time.

If you have a Wordpress blog, it’s relatively easy to set up a way for your posts to be automatically posted to both Facebook and Linkedin at the same time.

Wordpress Addons

There are many Wordpress addons, but in this case you should be looking for one that allows you to link your Facebook and Linkedin accounts into your Wordpress page. The idea is that every time you post on your Wordpress site, the blog is also automatically posted to both Facebook and Linkedin.

For Facebook, you can achieve this by searching for a number of addons. There are several different types and they all have different features, so you should try them out before you settle on one.

When it comes to Linkedin, the business networking site has its own Wordpress plugin in their setup area which you can simply enable. After typing in your credentials to your Wordpress site, a small box in your feed in Linkedin will post your blog entries there every time you create a new one, so your connections will be able to see your entries in their feeds.

Why Should You Link These?

There are many reasons to link Facebook, Linkedin and Wordpress, but the number one reason is to save you time. It’s far easier updating your post once and then having it spread to other networks automatically. The best thing is, you can incorporate many other networks into this strategy by simply installing more plugins into your Wordpress page or by finding the relevant setup option on the other social network you use.

The simple answer to why you should diversify in this way is that other people have limited time as well and they are only using 1-2 social networks at most. If someone is already using MySpace and their friends all are, they are unlikely to switch to Facebook or Google +. But all you need to do is set it up so it posts everywhere at once.
