How to auto 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 is definitely a respite for content publishers.

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
