Jetpack Social makes it easy to automatically share your posts to multiple social media networks when you publish. The ability to share previously-published posts and schedule posts to be shared at a specific time were previously available for Complete plan subscribers only. These features are now accessible in the Free plan, too.
For general information about Jetpack Social features, please see this page.

Site Owners / Users
In order to process cross-service sharing of new blog content, the following information is utilized by the Jetpack codebase: WordPress site URL, site owner’s local user ID, WordPress.com-connected site ID, two automatically-generated WordPress.com secret access tokens (and the expiration timestamp of those tokens), and the post data that is to be shared (ID, excerpt, content, permalink, etc.). Service-specific access tokens (only for connected services) are also used.Additionally, for activity tracking (detailed below): IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID and URL, Jetpack version, user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
