There are plenty of tools out there to simultaneously update your tweets and your Facebook updates, including TweetDeck, Ping.fm and others.

However, when it comes to syncing your tweets and your Facebook fan pages the choices are slimmer. I took a look at a few different options out there, but I found that Hootsuite offers the most elegant solution. Hootsuite is a free suite of tools that help you better manage your social media activity.

First go setup a free account at Hootsuite if you don’t already have one. Once you’re logged in, you’ll click on Settings, choose Social Networks, and then Add a Social Network. This will open a small window where you can select Facebook Pages and select which page you want to sync with, then click Connect with Facebook. Once you’re all set up you can use Hootsuite to post a message to Twitter and update your fan page at the same time.

If you can’t view the movie above, you can watch How to Sync Twitter & Your Facebook Fan Page over at YouTube.

Thanks to Karen Skidmore who gave me the heads up on this.

    I just found out you can add other social networks to Hootsuite as well such as Linked In. Hootsuite really streamlines social networking so you can stay in touch but not get lost in space. Thanks for showing people how Rich!

    Got anything to sync facebook to twitter? I don’t want to have to log into HootSuite all the time. If i post something on Twittter i want to see in on my Facebook Fan Page and visa versa.

    Jay & Samantha,

    I don’t post to both my business page and my business Twitter account often enough in sync to have investigated too deeply, so the only tool I know about is Hootsuite. I don’t feel that it’s that big a hurdle, but maybe someone else has a better solution. Sorry!
