Conquering Posting to Facebook and Twitter via Powershell

Body:
​Well this weekend has seen me look at whether it would be quite difficult to post to both Facebook and Twitter via PowerShell.

In short the answer is not really.

I have had very little exposure to Oauth in recent years and luckily for someone like me (little in practical experience but a base understanding of how it works) this has been relatively simple to get my head round

Now before I go into further detail i must give credit to the people that originally posted any adapted scripts – mainly Oauth Keys

So for FaceBook – Credit goes to John Newman and you can find his work at http://facebookpsmodule.codeplex.com

For Twitter – Credit goes to this Powershell Workflow that was posted by Peter van der Woude on Technet Galleries – https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Send-Tweets-via-a-72b97964

Getting the Facebook one working was a tad more difficult than twitter – however this is due to how FaceBook manages “apps” more than anything else.

 

So Eventually it came down to having a New-FBFeed and a Send-Tweet function but what about when I wanted to Post the same thing to Both?

 

So i wrote a simple Function that calls both Send-Tweet and New-FBPost which i will post below

 

Function
Send-FBTweet{

param (

    [
Parameter(Mandatory
=$true
)][
string
]$Message

    )

   
Send-Tweet
$message

    
New-FBFeed
-message
$message

}

 

And its as Simple as that.
