Integrate Your Tumblr Blog With Social Networks

Visitors are the essence of blogs without which a blogger cannot meet his or her aim of sharing links, videos, and experiences with the people across the world. So, the main task of the blogger is to fetch more and more number of people.

So, is there a solution better than integrating your blog with the social networks? Well, I don’t think so because social networks such as Twitter and Facebook are active social sites with millions of users.

Therefore, fetching the target users from these social networks for your blogs is surely an amazing idea. In this article, we shall look how to integrate a Tumblr blog with Facebook and Twitter.

Introduce Your Tumblr Posts On The Facebook Wall

How about making it convenient for the Facebook friends and relatives to see your posts without actually opening your Tumblr blog? Well, you can do so by publishing the Tumblr posts automatically on your Facebook wall. Here’s how to do so.

You need to first open the Customize page of your blog by navigating to the URL, tumblr.com/customize. Now, select the Services tab to display its drop-down menu. You will now see the Facebook box wherein you need to click setup for adding the blog to your Facebook account.

Next, you have to log on to your Facebook account and click Allow so that the Tumblr blog can access your account. Now, you will have to add Tumblr to your News Feed by entering your blog’s URL and clicking the Start importing this blog button.

In case you are not using your own custom domain, enter. tumblr.com as the URL.

Finally, you will see a message stating that the Tumblr posts on your blog will be automatically fetched into Facebook via news feed. Now, try to post on Tumblr and you will see that the same post is visible on your Facebook wall.

However, in case of longer posts, you will have to click View Post to see the full content. By default, Tumblr posts are seen only on your personal wall, not on Fan pages.

Convert Tumblr Posts Into Tweets

Twitter is a bit broader than Facebook in terms of diverse users. So, you might want to consider welcoming Twitter to your blog in Tumblr. To do so, open the Services tab as stated above, select the Send my Tumblr posts to Twitter check box, and sign into your Twitter account.
