Jetpack Social

Jetpack Social makes it easy to share your site’s posts on several social media networks automatically when you publish a new post. Our Complete plan users can also share content that has already been published, and schedule their posts to be shared at a specific time.

Note: Publicize is now called “auto-sharing” and is a feature of Jetpack Social.

For general information about Jetpack Social features, please see this page.
