Updating every social media site where you have an account can be a tedious task. One way to alleviate this is to sync your social media accounts together. This will allow you to post to one site and then have it forwarded to one or more social network sites that are linked together.
1) Sync Foursquare with Facebook and Twitter
Log into your Foursquare account and click the drop down arrow in the upper right. Click on the option for Settings and then click the Sharing with other networks link under Your Profile. A button to connect your Facebook account and Twitter account will be available. Click on the button for both accounts that you want to link to Foursquare. You will need to log into Foursquare with each account. Options can be selected for what you want to publish to Facebook and Twitter.
2) Sync Twitter with Facebook
Log into your twitter account and click the crop down in the upper toolbar. Select the Settings option to view the page. You then need to select the Profile tab on the left. Scroll to the bottom and then click the Post Your Tweets to Facebook button. You need to click the button to sign into Facebook to connect the account. Complete the process by clicking the Log In with Facebook. Your Tweets will not post to your Facebook wall.
3) Sync Facebook Profile to Twitter
Go to facebook.com/twitter. Click on the Link My Profile to Twitter button to go to the Twitter page for allowing Facebook to use your Twitter account. Click the Authorize app button to allow your status and other profile updates to post on Twitter.
