Support Home > Social > Publicize


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

For general features and FAQs, please see our information page.
