I was lucky enough to attend WordCamp Frankfurt this year and staff the Jetpack and WooCommerce booth. I had a blast, I met two of my fellow Automatticians (Cécile and Thomas), and I had a chance to talk with our customers. It was awesome!
Whenever you publish an article on your WordPress website, chances are great that you are going to share your article with your friends on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.
Instead of logging into each of these services and sharing the URL to your article manually, you can also automate this process by using Jetpack and its Publicize module.
The detailed information about Publicize and how to use it can be found at the official guide below:
Right. But also wrong! I’ll explain the ambivalence shortly 🙂
Let me first explain in a few sentences the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com. I’ve already touched this subject in one of my previous posts. Basically, with WordPress.org you have to take care of everything – you need to find a hosting provider that suits you, you need to install WordPress, take care of your site’s security, updates and backups. You have full control, but it comes with a lot of responsibility.
On the other hand, you can set up a blog with WordPress.com in a matter of seconds. The folks from Automattic take care of every single detail I mentioned above and all you need to do is customize your website according to your needs and write, write, write, publish, publish, publish, and then write and publish some more.
