Ping.fm: Post at Once to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Friendfeed etc



If you are a social media addict like me, with profiles on different social media sites, you can now update all your social media sites at once. I mean, with a single update, you can update all your social networks at once, without having to update all the social media sites individually. Hence, you can focus on other things instead of jumping from one site to another, just to get them updated.

So, how is this possible?

Well, it is possible with the help of Ping.fm



What is Ping.fm ?

Ping.fm is a website where you can automatically update a large number of social networks and bookmarking sites all at once. Social networks supported include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Friendfeed etc. You can find the list of supported social networks or services here: http://ping.fm/networks/.

How To Get Started

Go to www.ping.fm and sign up for Free

After registration, what next?

You need to start adding social networks that you want to hook into your Ping.FM account. The good news is, you only need to do this once. Adding each network is mostly adding your username and password for each of your social media network and granting Ping.fm permission to your network where neccessary.

Setup is easy. Right from your Ping.fm dashboard, just click the "Add Network" and follow the directions on the service page. After adding your networks, any update you post via ping.fm will get posted to the networks you have added to your ping.fm account.

That's all.

One cool thing I like about ping.fm is the "Posting Groups". Posting groups allow you to post to the social networks of your choice. For example; Say you have Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn set up and you want to post to Twitter and Facebook, but not LinkedIn.  This can be easily done.  You can read more about Ping.fm Posting groups here.

Note: You can post to your ping.fm via ping.fm website, email, mobile app, sms etc.

In my future posts, I will be sharing with you more info on what you can do with ping.fm, including how to use Ping.fm to build backlinks. Just make sure you subscribe to this blog.

Cheers!
