How to link Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to post at once

Can I post to all my social networks at once?

Social networks have become a part of our lives. It is strange to meet a person who does not have a profile in any of them. Nevertheless, attending all social networks requires time and effort. And we will not always be willing to dedicate those resources, either because we do not have them or because our networks are not going to reward us for the work that we are going to do.

As a general rule, each network is a world. They are not all the same, and in them the concept is perfectly fulfilled “The medium is the message”. Twitter is structured to make a short communication, very synthetic and in the form of threads. Facebook is a very flexible network, but it is designed to post long texts and start great discussions in your comments. And finally, Instagram is a social network designed so that the visual aspect predominates. We can write a long text, but we will rarely generate a debate like it happens on Facebook.

What we mean by this is that yes, you can link your profiles from different social networks, but you will have to adapt the way you communicate. With this system that we are going to explain to you, you will be able to publish on several social networks at the same time, but you will have to modify the way you publish so that it adapts to all networks. What you publish from now on will have to be like a skeleton key.

Can Twitter and Facebook be linked natively?

For years, there has been an option on Twitter that allowed the two profiles to be linked natively. It was as simple as accessing Twitter Settings, entering ‘Apps’ and logging into Facebook through OAuth.

Since one of the latest updates to Facebook’s privacy policy, this option has disappeared from Twitter. The two profiles can no longer be officially associated, and it is unknown if Zuckerberg’s will support this functionality again.

Facebook and Instagram can be associated in a very simple way. After all, they are two networks owned by the same company, Goal. Posting on these two social networks at the same time can be useful for the family. And it is that, the two platforms have users of different age profiles, so it is very likely that the young sector of your family is on Instagram and the older one on Facebook.

  1. Click on your profile thumbnail in the top right corner of the app.
  2. Now click on the option ‘Settings and privacy‘.
  3. Within the new dropdown, now access the section ‘Setting‘.
  4. In the sidebar that now appears on the left, we will enter the ‘Meta Account Center‘.

  6. Once this is done, you will now be able to quickly share on Instagram any post you make on Facebook quickly.

If at any time you are interested unlink accounts, return to the Meta Account Center. Click on your Instagram account and then click on ‘Remove from account center‘.
