FB140 – How To Find All Your
Facebook Friends Who Are Using Twitter
Wouldn’t it be great if there were an easy way to find all those pesky ;) Facebook friends that are also using Twitter and follow them there?
Well, the wait is over!
Social.me has a great little free utility called FB140 that connects to both and digs up that information for you when possible!
The steps are super simple and here’s a few screenshots of the process.
Step 1: First you need to give it permission to connect to Facebook and Twitter.
It’s using Facebook Connect and Oauth, so it’s not storing your login information.
Step 2: Once it has connected to both networks, it will pull up a list of your friends that it has twitter information for, and show you if you are already following them (“Hurray, already following them!”) or give you a check box next to their name to check so you can follow them.
Step 3: Once you’ve selected (or unselected) all of the people you wish to follow on twitter, scroll to the bottom and click the “Follow these people!” button.
Step 4: Oddly there is no confirmation that the follow took place (but it is working and you can verify that by checking one you weren’t previously following).
This next screen offers you to suggest the service to your twitter friends. Useful if you have a smaller following list, but I found it cumbersome with my large list and chose to avoid it.
(Also, don’t miss the fact that this “suggestion” is a auto-DM which some people are not fans of.)
Step 5: There’s one more screen after that suggests I create a society (which is society.me’s primary function). I had no interest in it, so I went to the top of the screen and re-clicked “FB140” and ran through the process a second time to be sure it had followed everyone it said it had. Worked great.
That’s it! Easy Peasy!
Nice little smooth working utility that can save you a lot of headache.
Now if I could just find one that worked the other direction and let me add my twitter followers as Facebook friends…
