Facebook, Twitter and Facebook Pages
Typepad allows you to share new posts on your Facebook, Twitter, and Facebook Pages accounts, which can help drive traffic to your blog. To take advantage of Typepad's sharing features, you will need to provide the log in details for Facebook, Twitter and/or Facebook Page in the Add an Account window.
You can choose to enable sharing, display a link to the service on your Typepad Profile, or both. Note that sharing only grants Typepad access to send your new posts to the service. It does not grant access to your account information.
To add a Twitter account to your Other Accounts, select Twitter from the Add an account menu and click Add. You will be taken to a new page, where you will allow Typepad to connect to your Twitter account. If you are not logged into Twitter, you will be presented with a log in form where you can enter your Twitter username and password.
If you are already logged in, Typepad will connect with the Twitter account you are logged into. If you'd like to add a different account, use the log out link and then enter the username and password for the account you'd like to connect. You can add an unlimited number of Twitter accounts.
If you have a Facebook account, you can automatically share new public Typepad posts via Facebook Connect. Typepad allows you to select individual posts to share on Facebook or you can set new posts to be shared by default. For details, see Sharing Posts on Facebook.
Please note you can only connect to your Facebook Profile. For information on sharing to a Facebook Page, see the share posts to a Facebook Fan or Business Page
For other services, you'll enter your profile name but a password is not required. For example, if your Flickr URL is flickr.com/photos/johndoe/, you'd enter johndoe in the Account field. For a chat client, you'd enter your screen name.
Some services use an ID number rather than a member name to identify users. These services include Bebo, Dodgeball, hi5, and orkut. You can find your ID for these services in the URL for your profile. For example:
The string of numbers at the end of the URL is your ID number, which you'd enter into the Account field of the Add Account prompt.
If you'd like to link to a service that isn't listed in the menu, choose Other and simply enter the full URL for your profile at the service.
You can add edit or delete services at any time by coming back to the Account > Other Accounts page.
We have information about displaying your Other Accounts in your blog's sidebar here.
