Once you add a blog post, you have to go publicize it on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. This little routine can get tiresome, especially if you’re on several different networks. Wordpress.com has a nifty little feature called Publicize that makes all of that automatic. Just hook up your site to your Facebook & Twitter accounts and when you post to the site it alerts your friends & followers.
This is such a good time-saving idea that other platforms are picking it up. If you have a self-hosted WordPress site, check out plugins like Twitter Tools. If you’re on Drupal, a module like Drupal for Facebook will take care of it. Set it up once and cross one more thing of your daily to-do list.
