As more writers are engaged in Social Media and as more platforms they use, as easier it gets! Don’t believe me? OK, I will explain: You write the posts – snippets from your blog or short announcements only once, but then you copy and paste them to several of your Social Media sites. I wrote already in one of the last posts, how you can implement your blog automatically into your Goodreads Authors program.
Here is another opportunity for an automatic feed: When you post on your Google+ account, it will automatically go to Twitter as well – at least the first 140 letters of your post.
Here is how to set it up:
There are many free services that do this, one of the best sites to do this is ManageFlitter.
Start with opening your Google+ account and go to your profile. The URL should be http://plus.google.com/ followed by a long number, then /posts. This is your unique profile URL.
Select and copy it.
- Go to the ManageFlitter home page and click “Start.”
- Click “Connect to Twitter”
- Select the “Dashboard” tab,
- then click “Turn on/off Google+ sharing”
- Paste in your Google+ profile URL you just copied
- and then click “Start Sharing.”
It’s easy to get automatically everything you post on Google+ also post to Twitter. From now on, everything you post on Google+ will be tweeted on Twitter, with a link back to the Google+ post.
Congratulation! You made it!
