How to Connect Your Blog to Your Social Media Accounts

wp2

Did you know you can connect your wordpress blog to your social media accounts? It’s an easy way to instantly share your blog posts on your favorite social sites. Connecting to your social media profiles is a quick and easy process.

  1. Click on mysite in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
  2. On the following page, scroll down the menu located on the left hand side, and click on sharing.

On the next page, you will see this:

Connection Options

Select the social media account you want to connect with by clicking the ‘Connect’ button. For the purpose of this post, I’ll use Facebook and Twitter as examples.

Facebook

fb

A dialogue box (like the one shown above) will open that gives you the option of connecting with your personal profile or, if you have one, your Facebook page. Select the option of your choice, click the connect button, and you’re good to go!

Twitter

twitter

When you want to connect to Twitter, a new window will open up like the one above. Clicking on ‘Authorize app’ will redirect you back to WordPress, with a dialogue box asking you to confirm the authorization. As before, click ‘Connect’ and you’re done.

Great, I’m connected! Now what do I do?

Once you’ve connected your blog to your social media sites, your posts will automatically be shared on them. That’s it! Easy peasy!

Whoa, wait a minute! What if I don’t want to share a certain post?

If you don’t want to share a post to one of your social media sites, don’t worry! You can prevent it from happening without having to disconnect your blog.

When you’re writing a new post, just look at the menu on your left, and click on ‘Sharing’. It will expand to show all the social media sites your blog is connected to, like so:

sharemenu

Uncheck the box of any site you don’t want to share your post on, and it won’t be shared. I always save the draft of my post immediately afterward, to make sure it sticks.

A word of caution: Don’t publish your post until you’ve double-checked this! Weirdness happens sometimes, so it’s always best to make sure everything is set up the way you want it to be before you hit that ‘Publish’ button.

I hope this tutorial has been helpful for you!
