Tumblr Now Has Facebook Timeline Integration


If you chose to “Share Posts on Your Timeline” within your Tumblr blog settings, your published posts will now be sent automatically to your Timeline, News Feed and Ticker (though you can toggle each post individually before publishing if you decide to keep it in your Tumblr only).

What does this mean exactly?. First of all, your posts will now show more “properly” since Tumblr App is now part of Facebook Open Graph.

Another great feature about the new integration with the Facebook Timeline, is that your content is kept private, that means people reading your timeline will have to visit Tumblr in order to know what’s behind the title, this is great news for publishers hungry for more hits in their blog.

Sending your Tumblr Posts to Facebook will never be the same after this update.

  1. Toggle “Send to Facebook” when posting: You can opt each time you publish a post to not send it to your Facebook Timeline.
  2. Share Replies & Likes on your Facebook Timeline: They get stacked together, so in case you have a gazillion of these notes, they won’t look as spam

    i clicked share with timeline and everything else. a couple of my posts showed up on my FB page, a bunch did not.
    and i have never seen a toggle switch to control post by post.

    this is frustrating – especially since this is only help i’ve found & i’m already doing it.

    got any ideas?
