I’ll give you a phone. A smartphone that is special. I’ll give you this phone:
Let me make you the deal more special for you.
I’ll integrate your iPhone with all your electronic items in your home. So, you’ll be able to cook food while sitting on your couch playing Angry Birds or Infinity Blade.
OK, now that I’m done with my quota for iPhone reference, let me put this straight.
You’ll love a phone like that can control everything in your home, right?
Now, consider this:
Internet is your home and WordPress is the iPhone. You publish a post and automatically, all your social profiles will be updated about it!
That is exactly what I’m going to teach you in this post, how to integrate your WordPress blog with social networks.
I’ll start with the biggest social network, Facebook.
We’ll use Wordbooker for this.
Wordbooker allows you to cross post to Facebook. You can post whole post or just an extract.
- You can post to your profile, group or page.
- Different users can post to different accounts.
- The published posts show a WordPress icon instead of normal note icon on Facebook. A small but nice touch!
Twitter is next in line.
And for it, we have Twitter Tools.
The description of WordPress plugin page reads:
Twitter Tools is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account.
And every word is true.
This plugin is impressive!
Here’s what all it can do for you:
- Publish your posts to Twitter.
- Publish a daily digest of your tweets.
- Allow you to tweet from WordPress Dashboard.
- Display a widget of your latest tweets, which has a nice tweet option below it.
Linked In offers a relatively simple service.
Instead of a plugin, you just need to add a simple app on Linked In. And then name of app is….. no prizes for guessing it: WordPress App.
Just add app to your profile and enter your blog address.
Poof…. It’s that simple!
Tumblrizer allows you to cross your posts to Tumblr and Posterous easily.
You can post to a group, add tags to your posts(same as WordPress) and independently publish to Posterous if you want to skip Tumblr.
These plugins can help you integrate your WordPress blog with famous social media sites. From now on, all you need is to post something on your WordPress blog and all your social profiles will be updated!
Sit back on your couch and enjoy.
