By joining social networks we agree to be notified of new posts published by a select group of “friends”. It’s a common routine. Publish a post on your blog and use an aggregation app like Publicize, Hootsuite, TweetDeck, or Buffer to have the title and link automatically posted to multiple networks, including G+ Facebook pages, Facebook Profile, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumbler, etc.
According to Pew Research Center, 69% of adults use social media. Most bloggers belong to multiple social networks to get the word out to friends/followers that they have new information to share. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are the most common with huge audiences that span many demographics and industries. Social networking is very time consuming — enter the auto post.
An autopost is a post you create and schedule to be automatically posted at a specific time.
TweetDeck can be used to schedule Tweets. It’s available as a desktop app, a web app, or a Chrome app.
