If you are constantly posting on social media, it can be quite tasking to keep updating all of them at the same time manually, and as such, it is a good idea to find ways of linking one social media platform onto another.
Luckily, this is possible, and one such way is to link your Twitter profile to Facebook, and then Facebook to Instagram so that you can post on one, and automatically, have the same post posted on all the other social media platforms that you have.
The process of connecting your Facebook and Twitter used to be easy but this stopped when they changed the Facebook privacy laws. You can however still do the connecting, so your Facebook status updates appear on the Twitter account and vice versa. Here’s how you can do it.
