Automatically Post From WordPress to Social Media

So you want to automatically post to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ when you publish a new post? There are a few different ways to accomplish this, but many methods are cumbersome and extremely hard to setup.

The best way we have found to auto post to social media is using the Jetpack plugin, which includes a feature called “Publicize”. With this plugin, all you need to do is sign in to each social media account to connect WordPress to the network. Read below for a step-by-step guide!

1.  Search and install the “JetPack” plugin.

Click on “Plugins”, then “Add New” to get to this page:
