Facebook has not made getting content to your business page easy. Typically, information you try to push to your business page on Facebook often ends up on your personal page, and if you’re like me, my personal page is just that–personal. My friends could not care about my tweets or blog posts for my business, and throwing them up on your personal wall can actually tick people off. So, if you use HootSuite, as I do, you can add both your Facebook personal page to post tweets to, and you can also add your Facebook Page, for your business.
I use HootSuite to automatically search my Webvantix RSS feed, and whenever it finds I’ve updated the blog, it will automatically post a link to the blog, along with the title, which can be customized. I also have HootSuite push Webvantix’s posts directly to our Facebook Page wall as well. Nifty!
HootSuite offers the ability to add a Facebook Page to your account.
- Click the Launch Bar, go to “Settings”, stay on the “Social Networks” tab,
- Click “Add Social Network“. A window will pop up with a list of social networks on the left column.
- Click “Facebook Page“
- Click “Connect with Facebook“.
*Be sure to click Facebook Page, and not Facebook. This usually gets your Facebook Fan page set up.
Caveat: while this will usually set your fan page up, we do not guarantee it will always work. See FAQ article: Possible reasons you cannot add a Facebook fan page to HootSuite.
My thanks to HootSuite for being so responsive to my needs, which allowed me to share with you, this great feature!
I hope this little bit helps!
