Connecting your two profiles makes things a bit easier for you as your updates on one social network simultaneously appear on the other- basically, you are virtually in two places at the same time. You can link your Facebook account to your Twitter account or vice versa, depending on which network you use more.
If you feel more comfortable using Facebook and will post most of your updates there, go to this site. You can either create a profile for your blog (where you add friends) or a page (where you get fans).
Typing and hitting enter is the easy part but where does it go? The status update will appear on your timeline as well as in your friends' News Feed, assuming they haven't unfollowed your posts. Click the down arrow next to "Public" to view a menu of choices including "Friends," "Friends except Acquaintances," or even "Only Me," or "Custom," which lets you customize who sees it (or can't see it) based on pre-configured lists.

When you start typing a word that begins with a capital letter, Facebook infers you are tagging someone and provides you with a drop-down list of your friends (and some people you don't even know) to select.
If you want to categorize that post, use a hashtag or two (or three).

Joe is often online, surely daily, and he checks his email, Facebook profile, Twitter account and Instagram.
Maybe he even checks some news’ website he’s used to and plays some tunes on You Tube. At most, he’s maybe stumbled upon your link somewhere, but Joe is not about to type it – Joe is lazy. You need to be present on the social networks to best connect with your fans.
