How to publish blog posts to multiple social media platforms?


Many bloggers take the advantage of social media such as Facebook or Twitter to share content and generate traffic. While sharing links manually gives a publisher more control and addition of more information when sharing their posts, auto sharing of new blog posts would be a respite for the publisher.

If you are an avid blogger, you might have thought about how to share your blog posts to various social media platforms automatically when new posts are created. In this post, I am going to discuss about just how to do that using an online service called - "twitterfeed".

Using "twitterfeed", one can auto share blog posts to the following social media platforms:
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn

How to setup a service on "twitterfeed" for sharing blog posts?

 
  • Create an account on "twitterfeed" first.
  • You can sign in with your exisiting accounts such as Google, Yahoo, WordPress, Blogger etc.
Creating a new feed service:
  • After signing in, at the Dashboard, click on "Create a new feed".
  • Provide the Name for the feed and add the Blog URL or RSS Feed URL.
  • Click "Test RSS Feed"
  • If everything is okay, you will see a message "Feed parsed OK". 
Settings:
  • Click on "Advanced Settings" to set "Update Frequency", number of posts at a time etc.
    By default URL Shortening service used is "bit.ly". You may also use "TinyURL".
    After you are satisfied with the settings, click continue to step 2.
Choosing Services:
  • Available service includes- Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, App.Net, LinkedIn Company Page
  • To setup the service for Twitter, click on Twitter  in Available Services
  • Click "Authenticate Twitter button" and accept the authentication - "Authorize App".
  • Click on "Create Service".
Your new blog posts will be shared to the Twitter account you set up.
