Wordpress plugin recommendation for Social media posting

5 replies
Hi Guys,

I have a client who has a couple of Wordpress sites, and he wants to be able to automatically publish his posts onto his facebook and twitter accounts at the time of posting to his blogs.

I'm hoping that there might be some recommendations for a plugin that will do the job? Preferably something with the emphasis on "easy".

I found this plugin - WordPress › NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster « WordPress Plugins which looks like it will do the job, although they make a charge if using on more than one blog. I'm not ruling out a premium plugin, but free would be a bonus.

Anybody using something they really like and can recommend?

Many thanks,

Myles

    Yep. Jetpack. Usually comes installed with the WP install. It's solid, and robust, but requires a WP login. That will cover facebook for you. Twitter changed their API a couple or so month ago, so you'll need to find a specific solution. I don't recall the plugin I'm using on my sites right now, and I'm running out the door, but basically you need to create a mini app. It's not nearly as involved as it sounds. Google it and you'll see.

      Thanks for your input. It looks like Jetpack requires a wordpress.com account in order to work. I'm really looking for a self hosted solution that doesn't require third party accounts.

        Yes it does. The account is free, and takes 30 seconds to set up. Jetpack is as solid as it gets with respect to a WP plugin. You could always take the time to find (and potentially pay for) a 3rd party plugin that may or may not be updated on a regular basis. I suppose that's an option, just not one I would consider.

          OK thanks. I'll take a closer look at Jetpack!
