Post to social networks
You can post, tweet, and comment to your heart's content, right from your Windows Phone. Apps for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Vine, and more are available from the Windows Phone Store. For some social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, you can also choose to post updates and check-ins from your Me Card.
Posting to Facebook or Twitter
To use Facebook or Twitter in Windows Phone 8.1, you'll need to install the latest version of the Facebook for Windows Phone or Twitter for Windows Phone app. Then, just go to the App list to find the app, sign in, and start posting. You'll also be able to post updates and tweets from the Me card and share links from Internet Explorer directly to Facebook or Twitter.
Posting to LinkedIn
Flooded with updates? You can filter out the accounts you don't want to see. Go to People > What's new, then tap Showing.
To post an update from the Me Card
The Me Card is your profile on your phone. You can find it in the People Hub, at the top of your contact list. You can use it as a quick way to post a social update—and if you pin it to Start, it'll be even faster.
On Start , tap People , and then swipe to Contacts.
Tap your profile photo, and then tap Post an update or Check in.
Tap the network you want to use.
You can also post photos and videos to your social networks. See Take, edit, and share photos and videos for more information.
To respond to your friends' posts from the People Hub
After you set up Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn on your phone, you'll see updates from your friends in the What's new feed in the People Hub. When you see an intriguing post, you can comment on, like, reply to, or retweet it right from the People Hub.
On Start , tap People , and then swipe over to What's new to see recent posts from your friends.
Do one of the following:
- To comment on or like a Facebook or LinkedIn post, tap Comment next to the post.
- To reply to a Twitter post, tap Reply next to the post.
To share a link to Facebook or Twitter from Internet Explorer
Instead of copying and pasting a web address from your browser, you can post the link to Facebook or Twitter in a few taps, right from Internet Explorer.
On Start , tap Internet Explorer , and then navigate to a webpage.
Tap More , and then tap Share page. Tap the network you want to share to.
