How to Tweet or Post a Facebook Status Update in Windows 8.1

While Windows 8.1’s multitasking improvements and upgraded customization options will grab the attention of users upgrading from Windows 8, each one of the applications included in Windows 8.1 have also received big updates. The People app allowed users to keep in touch with friends and family before, however the application includes a revamped interface in Windows 8.1. Here’s how to tweet or post a Facebook status update in Windows 8.1.

Before you begin, it’s important to remember that the People app only connects to accounts that you’ve added to your Microsoft Account. You may need to configure your Microsoft Account to work with Twitter and Facebook before proceeding. Here’s how to do that first.

You’ve sent your first messages using Facebook and Twitter. It’s important to remember that configuring your Facebook and Twitter account to work with a Microsoft account also enables other Microsoft products to interact with those accounts. For example, a Windows Phone will now automatically connect to those accounts. The same is true for users who’ve previously configured their Facebook account to work with Microsoft’s Outlook.com mail service.
