I'm running a self-hosted version of wordpress, so plugins are an option that is available. I'm wondering what the best way to have my Twitter and Facebook accounts automatically update whenever I add a new post to my blog.


I've had great luck with Twitter Tools for updating Twitter, and Networked Blogs (search on Facebook) for Facebook.


ifttt.com is a plug-in free method which can do this!

  • Notable is that at present (2016) it apparently only allows posting to one Facebook page, so to set up mirror posting for two Twitter feeds (I don't use Twitter, I want those on Facebook) I need 2 IFTTT accounts.

Facebook Connect WordPress Plugin (compatible with WP 3.0) is very strong. Here's a list of features from the website.

* Open Graph Social Plugins (New!), like, activity and recommendations
* Build a community
* Login using your Facebook account
* Send comments to Facebook profile feed
* Invite your friends to the blog community
* See last visitors
* Facebook share counter
* Facebook fan page widget
* Facebook comments box
* Facebook user email store

Post to Twitter is a highly rated plugin to send out a tweet every time you post on your blog, and vice versa, depending on configuration.


Use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-tools/ for twitter than for twitter to facebook use http://restatus.me


Search the plugin directory for Twitter and for Facebook and you will find that others have already created plugins which do just what you are looking for.

    LMGYFY is rarely a good answer. AFIK there is only one such Facebook App and it isn't too great.
