If you’re a blogger or website owner running your website with the WordPress platform, you no-doubt use plugins to automatically update your content to Facebook and Twitter.
Now, if you run a multi-author website, you most likely want to automate as much of the tedious work as possible and drive traffic to your website while doing so. This means not only automatically updating your website’s Facebook Page and Twitter account, but also automatically updating your own Facebook Status and Twitter status whenever you write a post/article and assisting the other authors of your website in doing the same.
The most simple method I have come across in a long time comes from the website ifttt.com. What is ifttt? It stands for If This Then This. Simply, the website allows you to set up various conditions or happenings from one website or service or action or specified time, then do something else on another website or service by setting up a “Task.”
Simply put, we are going to tell ifttt to check for our new posts/articles, then publish the new post/article to our personal Facebook and Twitter accounts.
