Facebook was quick to respond to the flight of people over to Google+ when it launched, with a new feature that easily targets what groups can see your status updates. Now the social media giant has teamed up with Twitter in a move to block out Google’s attempt at getting a foothold in the market.
It’s not a super new feature, as people with “fan pages” have been able to link their Facebook and Twitter accounts in the past. But they are making steps to link your two accounts together. It’s all part of Facebook’s new Subscriber function.
The new feature will launch sometime this month. There seems to be some confusion on news sites if this will strictly be for people with Public Pages, or if the regular Facebook user can link their personal account to Twitter as well. According to documentation from Facebook, you will be able to link a “profile or Page” to your Twitter!
