HomeiSliderLinking your blog to Social Media

Have you ever had one of those days where you find yourself just looking in the mirror and saying “d’uh”?


“Social Media Diagram” by Stuart Miles – http://freedigitalphotos.net


I gotta say, today is one of those!  I’ve been around Social Media for a long time.  Years ago, I had my blogs set up to automatically link into my Facebook page via RSS.  But about 18 months ago Facebook ended that service.  I will admit that at the time I was annoyed, but I let the idea pass and forgot all about it.  Recently I’ve been wondering about it again, and today I started in earnest to try to figure out a way to get this working again.  I have to say, I was a little bit embarrassed when I found out that WordPress’ Jetpack includes a feature called “Publicize” that will automatically publish your new WordPress posts onto Facebook (personal or business pages), LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr and Yahoo! all automatically for you.  Grumble.

Well, I suspect I’m not the only one who has had this brain lapse, so here’s a link to the Jetpack settings for Publicize!

Hopefully this will be helpful to others!

    • Rodney, Jetpack is an addon for WordPress in general, so if you have that available at a minimum you should be able to get to the functionality using Safari on the iPad.
