3 Easy Ways to Share Selective Tweets on Facebook Pages

Facebook fan page & FB profile

Having trouble separating social lives between leisure and work? Let Facebook Pages help you out.

I’m on Facebook Page for days now and glad that I don’t have to bombard my own profile site with updates my friends find annoyed *chuckle*. But being active on Twitter, wouldn’t it be fantastic if we get to publish selective tweets between personal and Facebook Pages? Good thing that’s now doable in various Twitter platforms and I’m going to show you how.

Twitter Web Page Interface

If your computer system is not compatible to either one of the desktop client above, Facebook has a plugin that’ll work just fine with Twitter web page interface. Introducing:


Selective Twitter Status – choose particular tweets to be published on either Facebook profile or Fan Pages. Make sure your Twitter updates are NOT protected on Twitter. Put ‘#fb‘ at the end of each selected tweet as shown below:


a. Put #fb at the end of your tweet, for example–
Your message here http://your link #fb

b. have #fb followed by a space then a link, for example–
Your message here #fb http://your link

Add the Selective Twitter Status to your application. Remember to click ‘Add to Page’ first before proceeding to your Facebook Pages setup.

Add application to page

During the configuration, you can have either Your Profile or Your Fan Page(s) to integrate with Twitter account. We’ll look at the Fan Page configuration first:


1. Go to ‘Your Fan Pages‘. Only pages you’re an admin of will be displayed. Make your pick.

2. Type in your Twitter username > Save Changes.

configure update status for pages you are an admin for

3. In order to have BOTH Fan Page and personal account compatible with the plugin, you need to grant permission for Fan Page first before doing the same for profile.

4. After ‘Grant Permission‘, you’ll be directed to allow status updates as illustrated.

Choose your Fan Page first and click ‘Allow Status Updates‘ before you do the same for your profile page.

But make sure you have filled in your Twitter name first before authorization.

5. This is how the updates will appear in Fan Pages:

Isn’t it great? Problems solved! Now you can post however and whatever you wish interchanging your Facebook personal account and Fan Pages.

It’s Your Turn To Share

What other difficulties you faced while trying to integrate social media with one another? Do share your thoughts. And if you’re on Facebook, why not say hi and let’s connect at Facebook Page.


    1. Louis,
      So great to see you here. Thanks for visiting. ^^

      I’m glad the plugin matches your need. Sometimes I have to switch between PCs as well and that’s just pure handy. 🙂

      See you again soon.

      1. Jonathan,
        Just a quick check, have you updated your Tweetdeck to the latest version? And do you able to have the ‘Add Pages’ button as shown in step 1 for Tweetdeck?

        Friendfeed, oh yes, I admit I kinda neglect it a bit these days. May need to get back to FF whenever I have the chance. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. DiTesco,

      Now it’s much easier with Tweetdeck right? So glad you made it. Also, great seeing you on Facebook too. 🙂

    1. Anne,

      My pleasure. ^^ I hope the images are clear enough for the step-by-step. Do ‘poke’ me anytime on Facebook if you have any requests. 🙂 I’m all up for the learning myself too.

    1. Jay,

      Never too late to know. ^^ Hope you’ll able to implement either one for both your Twitter & Facebook accounts.

    1. Eren,

      Thank you so much for your kind support. ^^ I valued it greatly. Thank you so much for connecting on Facebook as well. Keep in touch.

    1. Gautam,

      Thanks so much for sharing. Everyone has his/her own preference, I’m glad everyone is using the application that works best for him/her.

    1. Most welcome, Rose.

      Whenever you feel like trying out Facebook, be sure to send me a message. Would love to connect with you as well.

    1. Jannie,

      No, I’m far from being smart actually. ^^ Thanks so much for the kind words.

      You should consider building a Facebook Page. 🙂 I’m sure I won’t be the only fan there. Let me know and I’ll try to help out if you plan on fixing one.

  1. I’m a fan of the #fb and tweetdeck; these two work best for me. When I’m on my Android phone, I use I-Tweet or Flyscreen. I saw someone using twitterrific, while it doesn’t have all the features that Tweetdeck offers, it looks slick, and Twitterrific might be less of a distraction. I’ll give it a spin. What Twitter apps do you use most?

    1. Miguel,

      Nice share! I haven’t got the chance to explore anything mobile just yet.

      For now, I’m using Tweetdeck more often. I would have stick with Seesmic Desktop if not because of my old laptop — a heavy duty for it to run, sadly. I’m just so excited discovering the #fb as it helps a lot when I’m on other computers. Great that #fb doesn’t show at all on the FB updates too.

      Twitterrific might be great if you’re going for a simpler option, I agree, it’s less distracting. Have you discovered other cool integration you could fix on Android phone besides FB & Twitter?

  2. Sham,

    Great to hear! Do make sure you’ve upgraded to the latest version though. Wait for your good news about the integration.

  3. Interesting!

    I couldn’t figure out how to send my tweets to individual fan pages as I don’t use tweetdeck, but I did modify all my twitterfeeds to add the #fb .. but it goes directly to my ‘base’ account, which I don’t have many friends. I’ve racked my brain trying to figure that one out, and concluded that I will just have to start seeking Friends in Facebook – in addition to Fans.

    1. HART,

      I’ve been trying for 2 days and sadly, I’m on the same boat as you now. I’ve tested with a blog post and it updated well on Twitter using Twitterfeed & #fb as post suffix, but not on Facebook Pages (even after I configured the Selective Twitter Status’ application setting), I wonder what could be the error.

      I will try again with the coming post, hope there’s a miracle. Will let you know if it could be done successfully.

    1. Sanjeev,

      Tweetdeck is so far my pick as well. Certainly makes sharing easier and I’m loving it. Glad you enjoy the post too.

  4. Darn. I’m using Hootsuite. Well, don’t need it yet now as I still have to complete setting up my FB page. 🙂 But the how-to looks great You’ve made the steps very easy to follow.

    1. Jan,

      Oh! Hootsuite, now I wonder if the #fb will work well in there? Think so. ^^ If you ever get the fan page up, do try it and let me know? Looking forward to it.

      Take care.

    1. Hicham,

      I understand that. ^^ Most of my real life friends are not interested in online world either, but I have a feeling soon they will be. 🙂

      Again, not all social media sites suitable for one’s purpose, so no worries. Just be ready and give this a thought when you think it’s the right timing.

    1. Techprism,

      Welcome and I hope to see you visit often after this.

      Appreciate your nice comment. So another score goes to Tweetdeck, good for them! Looks like a little competition is not bad at all, at least both Seesmic & Tweetdeck are now improving well.

    1. Pradeep,

      Glad you drop by. I’m sure in no time there are more added features to come. We’ll just wait and see. Hope you’re enjoying Tweetdeck now.

    1. Kiran,

      A convenient option for all of us to enjoy. Smart move for the desktop clients, I’ll say. ^^ Have a great day!

    1. Jan,

      As far as I know, Tweetdeck has yet to integrate the lists but soon. However it appears to me that Seesmic has got a foot ahead of Tweetdeck to be the first to integrate lists– I’m still waiting for their preview pack to be sent to me for download.

      We’ll see. I’ll keep you updated. ^^

    1. Zorlone,

      Thanks so much for visiting. Yes, either Twitter of Facebook, looking forward to the network. Anytime if you have anything ideas or discussions about social media, let me know. ^^

      Have a great day ahead!

    1. Heather,

      Welcome! So great to see you here and I really appreciate those kind words.

      Sometimes in the end of the day, we just hope our writings or info shared can be of some use to others in need. It means a lot to hear you say that. 🙂 *hugs*of appreciation.

    1. Kelvin,

      Welcome and thanks for sharing. Tweetdeck is so far doing a great job. I believe the competition between Tweetdeck and Seesmic Desktop really benefits us users. The game is on! ^^

    1. Ms Freeman,

      You’re most welcome. So glad the post can help in your FB networking. Pleasure to have you here!

    1. Hi Mike,

      That’s good to know. 🙂 Hope you’ll found your favorite among them. Do share with us your experience. Thank you for commenting.

    .-= neo´s last blog .. =-.

    1. Hi Neo,
      Did you go to your Facebook settings (located in the top right corner of your Facebook page)? From the settings page you can remove any applications that you have authorized to connect with your Facebook account. Make sure that when you go to the settings page, you click on the box in the top right corner and choose “authorized” applications. That way ALL of the applications you have ever used will show up. You can remove as many as you want by clicking the small “X” at the right side of the page from each applications name. I hope this helps. ~~Pam B.

      1. Thanks for answering the question, Pam. 🙂 I missed these comments, found them in the streams. Appreciate both you and Neo for commenting.

    1. Tom,

      Signing up for Ping is a thought too, good to manage your updates across various social media platforms. Did you have fun with it so far?

  6. Hi Ching Ya,
    I have used Seesmic and TweetDeck, and I like both. I have also used the #fb hashtag, but I didn’t realize it would automatically post to my Facebook page!

    But since I usually have my browser open anyway, I have been using Hootsuite on a regular basis, especially for tweets with links. Hootsuite allows the user to add more than one Twitter account, your LinkedIn account, and your Facebook profile page. It may even allow more apps, but I can’t remember. With each tweet, the user can choose which account to post to or choose all of them!
    The reason I like to use it for links is because of the ow.ly link shrinker. Hootsuite allows users to track each tweet that has an ow.ly link: number of clicks per link, number of clicks per day, and what percentage of clicks came from certain parts of the world. It’s great if you have a blog, organization, or business that you are promoting.

    1. Pam,

      Thank you for sharing your experience. 🙂 Truly appreciate your comments.

      Hootsuite is indeed a powerful tool, the integration and multiple Twitter accs handling are superb. I plan to do a review on this tool soon. Be sure to come back and share your thoughts. ^^

  7. Great tutorial. Very easy to follow. Since I prefer to update weekly and not daily, I need something to schedule my Facebook and Twitter updates. Do any of the apps you refer to do that?


    1. Hi George,

      Thank you so much for visiting. Actually, among these 3 mentioned apps only Selective Twitter Status has the potential to do so, but only if combining with a scheduling tool like SocialOomph or Hootsuite. The configuration is do-able but a little bit troublesome.

      Personally I would recommend Hoosuite as it’s free, powerful and easy to use; plus it’s capable of scheduling not only for Twitter, Facebook but LinkedIn as well. 🙂
