How to link your Twitter account with a Facebook page

If you are running your own business and use Twitter and Facebook for it’s promotion then this post is very useful for you. By linking your Facebook page with your personal or your business account you don’t need to update two of them individually. Let’s tell you how you can do it.

Steps:

  1. Open your browser and login to Facebook.

  2. Now click this link: http://www.facebook.com/twitter.

  3. Now it will show all the Facebook that you admin. Find out that particular page that you want to link by clicking “Link to Twitter” given with the page’s name.

  1. Now click on “Authorize app”, that will redirect back to you to the same page again that we opened in Step 2.
  2. Check every box if you want to share everything on Twitter. Uncheck some if you want to like there’s no use of sharing notes on twitter so uncheck it.

  3. Finally click “Save Changes”. Your two accounts are now linked. Now anything you share on Facebook will also be shared on your twitter account automatically.

That’s it, drop a comment if you’re stuck somewhere. 🙂

Facebook continues to Share Personal information to App Developers

Facebook first thought about sharing the user’s phone and address in January. Later it was cancelled. Now, the news is that it is happening again.

Credit

Facebook goes on to give personal information about users such as home addresses and phone numbers to third-party developers and websites. Although the info is only intended to be shared with application developers, experts still fear it may be easier for scammers to take advantage of users who could give out their personal contact information after a few wrong clicks.

A spokesperson for the website said:

You need to explicitly choose to share your data before any app or website can access it and no private information is shared without your permission.

Well, that’s true, easy to say and difficult to follow I guess. 🙂 What do you think about this ? Share your views with me here.

Now control what you share on Facebook

I always love to try new applications on Facebook and I do not like it when they ask you to allow wall posts and  information. This seems irritating at times. I don’t always want them to be displayed on the home page. Earlier I could disable the applications but now, after yesterday’s meeting Facebook has rolled on new features. Other than Group feature and Downloads, Facebook has come up with Application Dashboard.

You can see the image above is the Application Dashboard of my profile.

We can make changes in our applications by selecting any one of them from Application Dashboard.

With the Application Dashboard you can:

ADVERTISEMENT
  • View when did you last use that application.
  • The information that application is using.
  • Manage if you want that application to be published as post on your wall or not.
  • Stop it by accessing your data at any time.
  • Remove that application all together.

Phew 🙂 lots of points, eh! Now with this increased visibility people can control the Facebook usage and manage the way any application is displayed on their Facebook wall. This will really be helpful for people like me who love to use Facebook applications or games. I just do not want to bother my friends with all the updates of my games or applications if they do not use them.

According to Mark Zuckerberg people should have a control over their information, if they want they can choose to share a specific information with only special friends. 🙂 I am going to tweak the new features now and improve my Facebook profile a bit. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and tell me what all did you do. 🙂

Football Worldcup Fever On Facebook- Tata Docomo Launches Goal Mania

Football fever is on big time and we are all glued to TV sets rooting for our favorite team and players. But, how about putting all that football craze to some use when a match is not going on. Worry not, because Tata Docomo has launched a new game contest on Facebook. Remember the fantasy dream team contests ESPN used to have for cricket teams wherein you pick your own team and then compete with others in the league.

Tata Docomo has launched Goal Mania pretty much on the same lines of a fantasy league and it is available as an application on Facebook.

Link for application: Goal Mania

Once you launch the application, a notification will appear asking you to like the official page of Tata Docomo on Facebook without which you cannot play the game. Nice little social media strategy there.

goal_mania_docomo_home

The rules of the games are real simple.

  • You get to pick 11 players in your team and save them
  • You are allowed 3 substitutions after every match, which means that for every game you can choose the players with the maximum probability of scoring goals.
  • You are rated based on the number of your goals your team players score. The one with maximum score stands a chance to win goodies

goal_mania_docomo

Once you become a fan, click on ‘Play’ tab in the app and you get a panel to pick you dream team from the drop-down,choose the team which is playing a game that day and based on your knowledge and instincts choose your team. They also provide you with the playing positions (forward,defense etc) to make it easier for everyone to pick players.After that, you just wait for the match to get over and ensure you come back to make those substitutions before the next match starts.

How to make a substitution: Select the team of your player you want to replace. Click on his name and press the red arrow button to replace. Once that is done, select the team from which you want to add a player to. Select the player from the left panel and click on Green arrow to put him on your team.

Ensure that you don’t remove all the players from your existing team since you can only substitute three

ADVERTISEMENT

That’s it. Now all you need to do it wait and watch your scores as the matches go by. Based on the number of goals the players in your team score your scores increase and then whoever has the maximum point wins.

Invite Friends To Get More Substitutions: This is where it gets interesting. To increase the substitution limit(3), you need to invite your friends to the game. For every 10 referrals that you do, you get one extra substitution. You need to ensure your friends key in your Player Id while registering for the game. Your player id is displayed on the home tab of the Goal Mania application.

Have a go at the game and let us know your experience. There are cool prizes too which might make the playing more fun.
