To make all three work together, the first step is to go back and edit the FeedBurner account. Under Socializing, we’ll set it up to post automatic updates to your Twitter account.
People following you on Twitter who don’t already know about your blog will then get your blog posts, thus increasing your blog’s exposure. Similarly, we’ll use Facebook’s NetworkedBlogs application to link your blog posts to your Facebook account. Your Facebook friends will then know immediately that you have a blog that may interest them!
Promote Blog Using Using Twitter:
Twitter is a popular networking tool in which you post small, frequent messages (called tweets) of at most 140 characters. They are simple text messages – no images or videos allowed – and they are becoming an increasingly important way of communicating with friends, family, and potential customers, known as Followers in Twitter.

Followers are those who want to be updated when you tweet, so they choose to “follow” you. When you set up your Twitter account (if you don’t already have one), you will also choose people to follow. This means you will then see their tweets on your Twitter page every time they tweet.
It may turn out that your Twitter followers are an entirely different set of people than your Facebook friends or your blog followers.

Some people prefer Facebook, others may just use Twitter. Therefore, it’s worth making sure that your Twitter followers know when your blog’s been updated (by publishing your posts automatically to Twitter); and that your blog readers know what you’re tweeting about (by adding the Twitter Updates widget to your blog). You will add a widget to display your last four Twitter messages in your blog’s sidebar, giving your blogreaders the option to follow you on Twitter as well.
Promote Your Blog Using Facebook:
Facebook is probably the most popular social networking site right now. It’s similar to blogging in that you can post messages to share with “friends.” The messages can include text, links, images, and video, (but you are limited to the number of characters you can post). Facebook has built-in technology to help you find friends, which can be old high school friends, colleagues at work, members of a co-ed softball team, or business associates, among many others.
Facebook has an amazing ability to connect you with people you know and those you don’t but may be interested in following as they may share similar interests and you may have mutual friends.
You can use Facebook personally and professionally. However, if you are using it for business purposes, you must use what is called a “Page.”

For example, I have a Facebook account and I post often about my family, what the kids are up to, what we may be doing today, or maybe that I have a migraine and am looking for miracle solutions! But I also use the same Facebook account for both my stamping business and my blogging business, and of course I wouldn’t post this type of personal information to these.
Instead, on those pages I post about stamping kits and tutorials I may be selling, or about an upcoming crafting event, or a tip on blogging.
Although I could post about an upcoming event or free blogging tip on my “Wall” (the main posting area in Facebook), Facebook policy prohibits posting things for sale or promoting business services. If don’t plan to use your blog or Facebook for business, you don’t need to create a business page.

By integrating your blog with Facebook and Twitter, you expand your blog’s visibility in that by using them, people may find your blog who otherwise wouldn’t. For example, suppose you put your Facebook badge on your blog’s sidebar and, say, ten of your blog readers ask to be a Facebook friend.
Their Facebook friends then read their Walls and find out about you and become your Facebook friends as well – and find out about your blog. This type of growth and exposure can continue exponentially through Facebook networking.
