Update Facebook, Messenger, MySpace, and Twitter all from your iPhone

With this morning’s launch of the Messenger for iPhone application and the launch of improved Facebook and MySpace integrations with Windows Live, you can now update your status once and have it shared with your friends on a host of popular social services. 

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Connect Messenger to Facebook: http://profile.live.com/Services/Add.aspx?appid=1140906031
    (check the option to “Share my Windows Live status and activities with my Facebook friends”)
  2. Connect Messenger to MySpace: http://profile.live.com/Services/Add.aspx?appid=1140860417
    (check the option to “Share my Windows Live status with my MySpace friends”)
  3. Connect MySpace to Twitter: http://www.myspace.com/sync 

Now when you update your status in Messenger (whether from PC, Web, iPhone, mobile web, or SMS) it will cross-publish to all of your friends on the various services. 

Enjoy–
Rob
