Connect blogs to your social media

When you publish a new blog post, it can also be published to your social media accounts automatically.

Before you start publishing your blog posts, please make sure you are connected to your social media. There are a few ways to share your blog to your social media: 

PUBLICIZE

This service needs to be set up before you can share posts automatically.

If we haven't already provided you with a Publicize (WordPress) login, please ask for one.

  1. Login to your website or hub
  2. Go to Settings - click Sharing
  3. Click on WordPress sharing page or the Publicize button
  4. In the login screen that pops up - enter your Wordpress.com credentials that we have supplied (Note: this is NOT the login you use to access your site)
  5. Next, you should see a list of social media types you can connect. Click on the ones you want to connect and follow instructions. (It's easier if you are already logged into your social media accounts)
  6. Open the drop down next to each account and check the checkbox that says "Share this connection.."
  7. Return to your site and open any unpublished blog post. You should see the accounted listed that you have connected to under the Publicize settings on the right side of the screen near the publish button.

Here's a short video that shows the process

You should only need to do this connection once. Once you are connected, all your blogs will be connected.

*Facebook doesn't post to personal profiles and business pages with business manager. It needs to be just a normal business page.

**LinkedIn only posts to personal profiles. To share a blog to LinkedIn business page, please use one of the options below.

***Social sharing only works for blog posts that have never been published previously. This prevents multiple instances of the post if you were to re-edit the post at a later date. To share again, use the manual sharing buttons on the blog post page.

SHARING BUTTONS

  1. Post a blog as normal
  2. Go to your blog page in the front end of the website and click on the blog that you posted
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the article until you see sharing buttons
  4. Click on each button to share the blog on social media

COPY & PASTE THE BLOG'S URL

  1. Post a blog as normal
  2. Go to your blog page in the front end of the website and click on the blog that you posted
  3. Copy blog's URL
  4. Paste it to your social media page (it will load the blog automatically when you click Post)
