First Time Blogging Social Sharing Networks Steps
The social network market is growing fast. If you are serious about an online business, blogging, sharing and much more then you need to get involved with the following social sharing markets like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. If you don’t spend time understanding these services then you will loose business, clients, status and more. These social networks are very much part of most peoples life nowadays.
However in your case your business might not need to target the social market as much because you might be creating a personal or private website or blog.

How to automatically publish your post to the above accounts from your WordPress website or blog?
The following lists a few methods you can use to share your blog or site with the social networks mentioned above.
- Use Google feedburner to manage your feeds, it is free so why not use it. There are other feed managers in the internet but I have chosen to use Google feedburner for now. (Note: Nowadays people are slowly moving away from feedburner because Google has not updated this service for a long time.)
- You can use the following plugin WP to Twitter to integrate your WordPress feeds automatically into Twitter every time you add a new post to your website.
Note: You might like to check the following URL Publish WordPress Posts To Facebook., to use a different service to automatically post to different social services.
There are other methods out there that might suite you best, however the above methods work for me.
Once you have created one or all the accounts mentioned above, you should need to also add some social sharing buttons in your site. Most people nowadays use plugins to simplify this method. You might like to check the following URL WordPress Social Sharing Plugins.
Currently for this blog, I have Suffusion theme installed. This theme has a few widgets. One of those widgets is called Follow Me. This widget allows you to display many different social media icons. Check the following URL Suffusion Social Media Widget Settings to learn more.
Note: It can take up to a few minutes to half an hour or more depending on various factors for the feeds to appear.
Click on the following URL SEO “Search Engine Optimization” to continue with the setup.
