Automatically Post from a Facebook Page to LinkedIn Page

Post from Facebook Page to LinkedIn Page

We all know the importance of social media and while I am not always a fan of automating social posts, it can be very beneficial in some cases. Most of my clients have LinkedIn company pages that they like to be maintained. However, they don’t get a lot of traffic from LinkedIn and so copying into Buffer what was being posted on their Facebook page was consuming a lot of time. The solution was to setup an IFTTT recipe to automatically capture my Facebook posts and post them to the LinkedIn page (company page).

Follow the steps below on how to set this up. Everything can be done with free accounts.

Step 1

First you will need to setup free accounts over at IFTTT and Buffer.

Step 2

Once you have both of those accounts login to IFTTT. I am going to show you how to setup your recipe. Or you can use my public recipe here:
