Vator updates can now go to Facebook

Chris Caceres · December 1, 2009 · Short URL: integrates Facebook Connect to help get your voice out across the social Web

Since its launch two years ago, has become a very vibrant and helpful resource for entrepreneurs and innovators to connect with the entrepreneur ecosystem.

At the same, it's evolved into a place companies can get their voice out quickly and easily across the plethora of social networking sites out there. 

Up until now, Vator has been enabling its users to post short messages to Twitter, videos to YouTube (videos), and a host of other sites across the Web.

Vator on Monday just added Facebook to the list. 

"The social Web has become so large that one of the toughest things for entrepreneurs to do is to update their presence across all these important sites," said Bambi Francisco, CEO and Founder of  "We want to make it super simple by giving them an easy solution to distribute their voice to the growing entrepreneur community on Vator, but at the same time the broader Web on Twitter, YouTube, and now Facebook." 

Once Facebook and Vator are connected, through a sequence that's very familiar to Facebook Connect logins, it's pretty easy for users to connect their company voice on Facebook. 

All they need to do is go to their dashboard on Vator, type in a message, and check which box they want to syndicate their voice to.  In the image below, the user can check Twitter or Facebook.  

Once the update is complete, if the user checked Facebook, that message will appear on the user's Facebook wall or Facebook page.  See example below.

And it's easy as that. 

The idea to connect Vator with Facebook was inspired by its more than 25,000 members and high-tech companies using the platform.  

As Bambi puts it: "Many of our members are on Facebook and use it to market themselves. They've asked us to integrate with Facebook so we did. Next up - LinkedIn and whatever other sites our users request."
