Why should I publish on my site and social media at the same time?
Social media is popular, but not everyone uses it regularly. If you only publish on social media, you’re missing up to 60% of adult Americans. It’s important to publish on both your website & social media in order to reach your whole audience. Jetpack Social works as a social media auto poster and makes it easy to share content.
How do I auto share new posts?
While writing a post in the editor, find the Jetpack icon at the top right of the editor. Click on the icon, and you will see the sidebar showing a "Share this post” section. There you can select the accounts you want to auto-share. When publishing, your post will be shared on your social media automatically.
To share scheduled posts on social media automatically, go to your WordPress Admin → Posts and locate the scheduled post to be published. Edit and click on the Social icon (the speaker) at the top right of the editor. Then you will see the sidebar with the "Share this post" section where you can select and configure your social publications. When the post is finally published, it will auto post to social media.
How do I share previously published posts?
You can also recycle published posts to share on your social media. Go to your WordPress Admin → Posts and locate your published post. Edit and click on the Social icon (the speaker) at the top right of the editor. You will see the sidebar with the "Share this post" section, where you can select and configure your social publications. Then, click on the "Share post" action to auto post to social media. This action won’t change the status of your post.
How do I share my content as social media posts?
When you upgrade to the Advanced plan, you unlock the ability to select an image or video and custom text to share your blog post as a social post. Rather than appearing as a link preview, your image and text will look like you manually published it on the social platform itself, saving you time and optimizing engagement. Studies show that manually published social posts get 50% more engagement than sharing links.
To use this feature, simply upload an image or video and add your custom text in the Social section of the sidebar editor. When the post is published, you will trigger the automated social media posting.
