How to Easily Share an Individual Facebook Status on Twitter, or Anywhere Else!

by Chris C. Ducker · 24 comments

How to Share a Facebook Status Elsewhere OnlineFollowing a recent video tutorial that I did on How to Update to the New Twitter Profile, which was well received, I thought I’d do another quickie for you, based on a really cool Facebook ‘cheat’ that I discovered recently.

It’s so cool and has the ability to really get people to ‘tune in’ on a specific status you post on your Facebook page – instead of having to roam around your entire page to find something.

I appreciate that some of you might have already discovered this for yourself – if so, please feel free to check out any of the other great articles on the site!

However, I know that a lot of my readers / followers online are really only just getting started with discovering all this ‘online stuff’, hence me getting all excited about bringing this tip to you! Plus, it goes to show you… I’ve been getting more and more active online over the last few years and I only just discovered this myself a few weeks ago (yes, I appreciate that this admission might make me look a little silly – oh, well..!).┬áCheck out the short video below for all to be revealed:

You can use this to single out a status update on Facebook (click link to see what I mean), for whatever reason. Here are a few ideas I’ve come up with and experimented with already:

  • Getting feedback on a logo or website design.
  • Asking quick questions to your community.
  • Highlighting a status update in a blog post, or podcast / video.
  • Sending a specific image, or video to a client, or prospective customer.
  • Spreading an idea or link to a landing page / opt-in offer.

One Piece of Info = One Action

There are a lot of ways you can use this quick little tip. Why is it important? Because it singles out an individual piece of information. And we all know that people are much more likely to take action (regardless of what that action actually is) if we make it as easy as possible for them to do so.

Got any of your own ideas that you can utilize this quick ‘cheat’ for…? Been using it already with good results? Please share below.

Nice. Will do…

Is there anything particular that you’d like to see addressed in future vids?!

Hey thanks Chris for this tutorial. This is new to me too tried doing it on iPad FB app but doesn’t work.. will try it on desktop tomorrow. Again thanks!


Chris C. Ducker October 17, 2012 at 01:09

Yeah, even though the latest version of the iPad app is better, it still has a long way to go to be a full fledged version, just for the iPad, of the desktop version.

That being said – I can wait. :-)

Thanks Chris. I knew this one, but that doesn’t mean I use it, nor that I find it useful — cuz now you pointed it out to me about its value…. well of course I’m going to change my thinking on this feature. Thanks.


Chris C. Ducker October 17, 2012 at 14:33

Haha… A nudge in the right direction never hurts, my man.



Lesley October 18, 2012 at 18:40

This is a great tip. I’ve had a fb page for a couple years and never knew about that feature. I knew about how to do that for a tweet but not fb status. Thanks for sharing!


Chris C. Ducker October 19, 2012 at 17:52

Awesome, Lesley.

Hope you can put it to good use and grow your FB presence!



Michelle October 19, 2012 at 22:49

OMG love it. That makes it so much easier to share on LinkedIn, Google+ and other social networking sites.


Chris C. Ducker October 21, 2012 at 09:21

Awesome, Michelle.

I’m happy that you enjoyed the tip and will be putting it to good use!

All the best.
