Auto-post To Your Account

The third purpose of this website is for its content to be easily shared with others so that the praise of God and encouragement of believers can be easily widespread.  Here are some ways to share this content with others.

Buttons

Individual posts can be shared on your Twitter or Facebook accounts by clicking on the appropriate button located on each post.

You will have to be logged in to your account in order for the update to be successfully posted to your account.

If you are already logged in to your corresponding account, all you have to do is click the right button.

It really is as easy a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Auto-post Updates To Your Accounts

You also have the option for updates to be automatically posted to your accounts.

These updates can be posted to your Twitter account, your Facebook account, or to both of them.  It’s totally up to you.

In order for the updates to be auto-posted you will have to use a third-party service.

Don’t worry.

It’s both simple and free, and should take you less than 3 minutes to set it up.

Once it’s been set up, you won’t have to do anything further. Updates will be automatically posted to your corresponding account(s) without requiring any further interaction or effort on your part.

Here’s how to do set everything up to receive automatic posts to your Twitter and/or Facebook accounts.

Here’s a step-by-step video to explain the entire process.

 

 

For your reference you can read the guide (with images) posted below.
Step 1. If you don’t have one already, you’ll need to open an account at Twitterfeed.com.

Step 2. After you have opened your account, and you are logged in to Twitterfeed, click the button in the upper right hand corner that says “Create New Feed”.

 

Step 3. Enter the name of the feed in the field labeled “Field Name”

You can name it whatever you want. This name is just to remind you what the RSS feed is in the cases that you have more than one RSS feed posting in your Twitterfeed account.

Step 4. Copy the RSS feed listed below and paste it into the field labeled “Blog URL or RSS Feed URL”

Blog URL

For your convenience, the RSS feed you need to copy is below, in bold text.

<copy the text in bold below this>

 

http://feeds.feedburner.com/gqfme


<do not copy below this point>

 

After you have copied the RSS URL and pasted it in, your screen should look something like this:

 

Step 5. Click on the button labeled “Advanced Settings”

After you click on the button, a screen with drop down revealing additional options.

Step 6. Set the field labeled “Update Frequency” to the option “Every 30 mins”, as shown below.

 

Step 7. Set the field labeled “Post Content” to include “title only” (see image below).

 

Step 8. Click the box next to “Post Link” to activate it. Then select Bit.ly from the drop down menu for the option “Shorten link through”.

 

Step 9. Skip the rest of the options. You don’t need to worry about them.

 

Go to the bottom of the page, and click the button labeled “Continue to Step 2″.

 

 

Step 10. On the next page click the button labeled “Twitter” below the title “Available Services”, to post to your Twitter account.

 

 

Step 11. Click the big blue button labeled “Authenticate Twitter”.

You’ll need to be logged into your Twitter account at this point if you aren’t already.

 

 

After you click that button, it will take you to a screen looking like the one below. This is the actual authentication process.

 

 

Step 12. Verify that your account was successfully authenticated.  You should see a green box indicating its success.

 

 

Step 13. Click the button at the bottom of the page labeled “Create Service”.

 

 

Step 14. You should see a green box indicating your feed has been successfully added to your Twitter account, and the box next to the word “Active” should now have a check mark in it.

 

Next click on the button labeled “Facebook”.  The process is the same to authenticate your Facebook account as it is to authenticate your Twitter account.

 

Step 15. To authenticate Facebook repeat steps 10 through steps 13.  Now instead of Twitter, we are going to be authenticating our Facebook account.

It’s the same process (you’ll need to be logged in to your Facebook account in order to complete the authentication process).

If you were successful with adding your Twitter account, you shouldn’t have any trouble adding your Facebook account too.

 

That’s all there is to it. It’s very simple.  Now each time an update is posted, it will also post to your account(s) automatically.

If you still have some questions, perhaps you could watch this video explaining how to receive these updates to your Twitter and/or Facebook account automatically.
