Just yesterday, Facebook announced that you can now add your blog content to Facebook in just one click due to sweeping integrations for WordPress.org and WordPress.com VIP users.

Once you acquire the free Facebook for WordPress plugin, it allows you, as well as administrators of WordPress-based sites, to cross-publish content to WordPress, your Facebook timeline and any Facebook pages you have.

The instructions are as follows:

  1. Install Facebook for WordPress either via the WordPress.org plugin directory, or by uploading the plugin to your server (in the /wp-content/plugins/directory).
  2. After activating the plugin, you will be asked to set up your Facebook app (via https://developers.facebook.com/apps), with step-by-step instructions.
  3. And you’re done! You should see the settings page below.

This new advancement in blogging makes it easy for anyone to make their WordPress site more social and it makes sense that Facebook is the chosen collaborator; Facebook has 900 million current users! Other widgets are available such as an activity feed to show your readers what their Facebook friends have been looking at on your WordPress site and a recommendations plugin that gives them suggestions for new articles and pages to read. There is also a comments box allowing your readers’ reactions to be posted to your WordPress site as well as Facebook.

Whether you’re blogging for business or personal reasons, the online distribution of content to your network is continuing to get easier thanks to these types of integrations. Leave us a comment and let us know if you have begun using this new plugin for your social media marketing efforts.
