Facebook has launched the “Facebook to Twitter” application. So far it is only available for Facebook Pages of businesses, celebrities, politicians, etc. Here is Facebook’s official definition of a Facebook page:
While I was interviewing congressional offices to understand their use of Facebook pages and profiles, I came across different strategies. Some have started out with profile pages and when they reached the maximum of 5,000 friends, they switched to a FB page. Others waited until they received official advice from their party leadership on how to use FB. Using “Facebook to Twitter” updates would definitely help them to easily update only one social networking service and send the message out automatically to Twitter. Saves the staffers an additional step in their already extremely busy schedules.
