This new feature from facebook becomes really handy as it makes easy for users to upload photos on facebook and all the photos will be uploaded to Timeline Photos album which will be automatically created if it does not exist under your facebook photo albums.

Post On Twitter From Facebook Profile [Selective Updates]

Recently one of my friend who created a new twitter id now he wants to post on twitter from facebook, but again he don’t want all the facebook updates from his facebook profile to be posted to twitter but only some updates he wants to be replicated on twitter.

post on twitter from facebook

As both facebook and twitter these days are getting popular so people who spend time online want to be active on both of these platforms and but at the same time if they want to post the same update both on facebook and twitter, they normally don’t like to do it one more time, in such cases you will need to make these platforms sync with each other for the updates cross posting.

However there is a way with which you could post some of your selective tweets on facebook which you want to, by using a app called selective tweets but other way round is little different as there are not many apps available on facebook which lets you post selective updates from your facebook profile to twitter, however if you ready to post all facebook status updates, videos and links etc to twitter there is a app which says post on twitter from facebook its named Fbtotweet

This app on facebook will let you post all the updates from facebook to twitter, but it will not happen instantly could take up to 30 minutes when the app service servers are heavily loaded. It will automatically upload your pictures via yFrog and shorten your shared links via Bit.ly – you can also disable these options for your Facebook account and for any of your facebook fan pages that your syncing.

Another way to post only some updates from facebook to twitter can be done through official facebook way of linking to twitter. As facebook now allows your facebook profile to link to twitter – in order to link to go to http://facebook.com/twitter and click Link My Profile to Twitter as shown in the image below.

Automatic Login In Facebook When You Are Logged In With Google or Yahoo Account

Yes, automatic login in facebook is possible, provided you are already logged in your google account in the same internet browsers like google chrome, facebook and internet explorer. This way your online life could little easier as you don’t have to enter the facebook password and username every time you go to facebook login page, you will be automatically logged in.

The best thing you can do is making your browser remember the password, in order to make logging in easier for you. But then it might not be possible for you to do the same when you are at your workplace then what can be the other smart way to do that. Keeping this thing in mind Facebook has come up with a new feature with the help of which you will be able to log into your Facebook account without entering the credentials even if that system does not remember your password.

You will have to link your Facebook account with another account by going to the setting option and then adding another. Procedure to do the same has been mentioned later in the post. Once you link any account to your Facebook profile then you will not have to enter the credentials to enter Facebook profile, if you have already entered that linked account. For example, if you have linked your Google account with Facebook, then once you open you Google account you will not have to provide credentials while accessing your Facebook account.

Auto Login In Facebook

Here is the procedure to do the same. Please follow this step by step.

Step 1

Login to your account as you used to by providing your login credentials and then click on the drop present on the right top corner of the screen (as mentioned in the screenshot).

Step 2

Then click on the option named Account Settings (as mentioned in the screenshot).

Step 5

Then Facebook will ask permissions to use that linked accounts information. Once you provide the Access to Facebook, your account will be linked and then you will not have to enter the username and password for Facebook, when you have already opened that linked account on that system.

But then it creates a vulnerability of your account to get hacked because now the hacker know you Google Password, then he or she might hack your Facebook account too. Please let us know if you face any trouble or need further information related to this feature of Facebook.
