A new feature on Facebook allows people (e.g. artists) updating their Fan Pages to automatically update their Twitter feed with the same information.”Many people have asked us to make Facebook and Twitter work better together for those times when they want to share their content as widely as possible,” says the blog post announcing the change. However, we think bands should think hard before simply pumping out the same status updates on every social network on which they have a presence.Meanwhile, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone says the company will introduce a new commercial service later this year, aimed at brands – and potentially bands. Rather than try to charge anyone using Twitter for professional purposes, it will be more about adding extra services that people may pay for.”We want to build statistics or analytics that let users know – ”How am I doing on Twitter?” he explains.
