Now Publicize to Facebook Pages

Since we launched Publicize for Facebook, which automatically shares a link to new posts to your Facebook account, one of the top requested features has been the ability to Publicize to Facebook Pages.  We’ve been listening and working hard, and are happy to announce support for this today.

If you already have Publicize active (which you should if you like traffic), you’ll now see a link to set options for Facebook, inside the Facebook block on the Sharing Settings page.

If you click on it, you’ll see a simple dialog box that lists all your available pages to pick from.

If you are new to Publicize, you’ll see a sequence of screens confirming permission to post to your Facebook account, before you see the screens above.

Also note, currently you can only Publicize to one target: either a page or your wall. This should be more than sufficient to get your great posts out to a wide audience of your choosing.

We hope you enjoy this added flexibility in how your blog posts get shared to Facebook.

    This is great! Except you have to chose one or the other. What if I want to publicize to both? Please . . . ?

    Any chance we can have the ability to Publicize to both Facebook Profiles and Pages at the same time? As well as support for multiple social networking site accounts?

    Great feature, and in use already :) What would be a nice addition is the ability to Publicize to a Facebook group rather than an individuals wall, but that’s only a wish list item.

    Does the auto-post show up under Facebook Page’s identity or does it show up under the identity of the Facebook account holder?

    However, I think it’s not sufficient. I might just want to publicize a post to both the page and in my profile. I think you should enable us to do multiple sharing. Let’s see what other bloggers think in this regard.

    I cannot get this to work on my site. I have gone to the Sharing section, and the Social Media tabs are not there (at least not for this application). I also went to plugins and it doesn’t appear there either. So I did a test post, and it wasn’t an option.

    Am I missing a step here?

    Add me to the list of bloggers who would appreciate the ability to link to both our personal Facebook Wall and Facebook Page. As others have stated, their are readers on both spectrums that we want to publicize our blogs to. I’m currently using Networked Blogs, which allows me to publicize to both. Until you’re WordPress allows me to publicize to both ( sounds like that’s in the works, though? ), I’ll be sticking with Networked Blogs for convenience sake. As soon as you provide both options, I’ll make the switch to WP.

    Thanks a lot WP team. The constant innovation really is a good value add when it comes to using WP.com and sharing your blog posts and content effectively. However I seem to have hit a block when it comes to managing media . Kindly also add that to your “list-of-features-to-be-added”.

    Wishlist:
    > Ability to tag media in the Media Library
    > Albums functionality (or something close to what Picasa Web Albums)
    > Sorting by month, year, title
    > A graphical/visual approach to managing & deploying media (drag & drop)

    Thank you once again.

    As a new blogger here, I would love to be able to somehow connect to my network of fans, followers and friends on HuffPost, but they won’t allow links to personal blogs of commenters. They allow their article writers to do so, however. They also encourage sharing on Facebook, Twitter, even here and some other sites, but not with personal site links. Some of the other sites I comment on allow direct linkage to my blog here. Any hope of encouraging HuffPost to do likewise? I’m not sure what mechanism you need to do that, but I know a lot of my HuffPost readers would probably visit my blog if they could link here. Just a thought. Thanks
