I was reminded of a great Facebook tip for driving more fans and engagement whilst watching a video hosted by Mari Smith recently.  It was her final tip that reminded me that this was something that I really don’t do enough of.  The tip came up again at the KLCK Bloggers Meet-up on Monday.  So what was this top tip?  It’s a simple as sharing your Facebook Page posts directly to Twitter and asking for feedback.  But how do you do this?

You can automate this process but I’ve just disconnected this feature for Spiderworking.com.  Why?  Well when I looked through my newsfeed I found that the posts looked automated, they often clashed with similar posts I was making on Twitter and it prevented me from personalising these tweets.  So today I’m going to show you how to link to a specific Facebook post manually. It’s really easy, it will bring you more engagement and as people have to ‘Like’ your page before commenting or posting it will also bring you more Fans.

1. Click the timestamp underneath the post you want to share

2. Copy the complete link from the address bar of your browser

3. Shorten the link by pasting it into a service such as www.bitly.com

4. Paste the link into a tweet asking for feedback

You can use this same method for finding a direct link to a specific tweet or Google+ post too.

    Thank you **SO MUCH** for this post. I have tried very unsuccesfully all manner of “tips” – including those on Facebook “help”. But this post of yours got it sorted quick and easy!
