TweetDeck Launches Facebook Status Update Support – Now You Can Be Two Places at Once

TweetDeck, one of the most popular desktop clients for Twitter, today launched a new beta version that integrates Facebook status updates directly alongside the Twitter stream. Now you can post updates to Twitter, Facebook, or both simultaneously. This makes it really easy to monitor and participate in conversations on both Facebook and Twitter all from one place.


Facebook friends online also have a green button icon which you can use to initiate Facebook chats directly from within TweetDeck.


The new integration is made possible by Facebook Connect, Facebook’s way of letting developers access the Facebook social graph and publish information back to the Facebook stream from third party websites or applications. The new TweetDeck is the latest in a spate of Facebook Connect launches in recent days – this weekend, several iPhone app developers launched Facebook Connect integration as part of the launch of Facebook Connect for iPhone, and Seesmic launched a brand new Facebook status update desktop client the same day.

TweetDeck with Facebook Connect shows the power of status update APIs. It’s likely that we’re going to see more Facebook Connect-enabled desktop clients in the weeks and months ahead!
