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

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.
