WordPress: New Publicize feature should generate more traffic
A few days ago WordPress introduced a brand new feature, calles Publicize! This feature is connecting WP to a list of Social media websites like Facebook, Twitter etc. making it easy – meaning automatic – to push a anouncement of a new WP post out to all your social channels by the push of a button. Sounds pretty neat – I have not tried it yet! This post will be my first test, so wait for the update, and I’ll let you know how well it works (for me).
Similar thing have been available before in other apps – especially for status updates ad that sort of thing. So it will be interesting to see if this new WP feature will change anything else than save you a minute or so every time you want to advertize a new post to a broader audience than your closest WP buddies. Maybe it will be a huge succes…? – If that is the case, there’s a good chance that the consolidated Social feed on my phone will be swamped.
We just have to wait and see…
