How To Save Time Updating Twitter Facebook & MySpace
Christina Duren who is the PR director here at Cyber PR wrote this great piece this week and I liked it so much I added my 2 cents and I’ll share it with you…
It comes at a great time because practically every artist I have met and spoken in front of over the past few months asks the same question: How can I save time while keeping up with all of my Social Media profiles?
The Internet now offers way too many social networking sites to help boost your career in music, it can become overwhelming to handle each and every one.
Ariel’s (@CyberPR) Down & Dirty Twitter Short Cuts: How I Connect with Thousands of People in 7 Minutes A Day
I use it like an addict uses drugs… Here’s how I simplify my Twitter life: Update your Twitter status from your mobile phone with Texting
Updating your Twitter status from your mobile phone is so easy to do – no Apps or smart phones needed!
To text from your phone in the USA, send messages to 40404 and they will immediately go into your Twitter feed (and your Facebook if you link it!)
Here’s How: Under your setting link on your Twitter account click “devices”. Enter your mobile phone number. You will have the option of receiving tweets to your phone from favorite people automatically or just monitor them online (I receive Direct Messages only to my phone)
TIP: To follow someone on Twitter from your mobile phone text follow then their username like so follow CyberPR
TIP: To message friends that follow you from your cell phone you can type “D” (for direct) then their username. Like so: D CyberPR and then it will come directly to me
Link Twitter to Your Status Updates on Facebook
Just install and Voila!
Link Twitter to Your Status Updates on MySpace
Syncing up is easy…Go to the Sync tab within My Account.
For right now Twitter is the only app available for synching but that will be changing soon.
A Few More Timesavers To Know About:
Ping allows you to update over 55 social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and your blog all from one easy to use website simultanously
Log on and create an account here: http://ping.fm/
Once you have created your account under the social networking tab you will add in each of your online accounts usernames and passwords (Twitter, Facebook etc.)
After each social networking site has been added onto your Ping dashboard you simply type in your message in the area that says: “Type Your Message Below” for each Social Media site you want to use and click Ping It! Each sites micro-blog and status update will automatically be updated all at one time.
You can also use the settings tab to control which Social Media platforms your updates get delivered to.

Link your Flickr account to Facebook Photo page
I Love taking photos and on Flickr I tend to upload many more photos than I do on Facebook. The reason for this is where there are other die-hard photo fans on Flickr and on Facebook I just add my highlights and photos which are tagged with friends names.
I trust these tips will help you! Please let me know how you save time.
