You can now send your WordPress.com posts to Facebook.
The feature can be enabled from your Dashboard → My Blogs admin page. Once you enable it, you’ll be directed through an authorization procedure to confirm that you want to connect your WordPress.com blog and your Facebook account.
These connections are per blog and per user, so those of you with several blogs can choose which ones to connect, and those of you with multiple authors on one blog can each hook up your Facebook accounts separately.
More details can be found on the Publicize support page.
Some of you may have been getting error messages asking you to authorize your connection with Facebook even though you already did that.
We think we’ve found this bug, so the error message will go away, but you’ll have to re-authorize that connection once more. Go back to My Blogs, uncheck Facebook, recheck Facebook and click the authorization button again. If that doesn’t work go through the steps outlined here. Failing that, we’ll be happy to help you out if you contact support.

Feb 27th at 4:37 am

Great option, thanks! Question: If you run a facebook page (separate from your personal one) is it possible to direct the post to the page?
Feb 27th at 4:56 am
I feel like most people comment on these announcements in hopes that other viewers will be redirected to their blogs. I hope it works.
Feb 27th at 4:57 am
Although this application comes late, I still appreciate your innovation. THX
Feb 27th at 4:57 am
Would be great to be able to post to a Facebook Page instead of a user account. Is that planned or supported? Thanks.
Feb 27th at 5:10 am
Although it’s a popular platform, Facebook is turning into just a big spam place. I wouldn’t use your new feature. Already there is a repetition of information, no need to include another. (Twitter, Youtube, Flickr, Feeds, all of that connected to facebook, you read the same information again and again. Recently I’ve read many people being tired of this merging or everything together while the idea is the separation of the small talk of Twitter and Facebook and the more private, intimate connection with blogs.)
Feb 27th at 5:15 am
This is the update I’ve been waiting for!
Feb 27th at 5:21 am
Pardon me Matt,
How does this differ from my blog posts that have been posting automatically to Facebook all along? When I created my Facebook account over a year ago, this feature was available (I added my blog to my FB account) and hasn’t changed. I love WordPress and the awesome work you do – I just want to make sure I am not missing something in this announcement…. Thank you!
Feb 27th at 5:33 am
Will this go to Facebook Fan Pages or just the individual Profiles?
Feb 27th at 5:33 am
Feb 27th at 5:35 am
Very Nice…. It’s very Good
Feb 27th at 5:50 am
Feb 27th at 6:05 am
Wow. I bet a lot of people are going to like this.
Feb 27th at 6:10 am
Wowwww,,, this is what i’ve been waiting for. mantab gan!
8) 8) 8)

This makes me so unbelievably happy since I never was able to get the other Facebook posting feature to work properly. Thanks, as always, WP.com for yet more great and useful features!
Feb 27th at 6:26 am
But I don`t use Facebook!
Feb 27th at 6:33 am
Thanks for your quick reply!
Feb 27th at 6:34 am
Awesome, love this
Feb 27th at 6:35 am
Good one WP!!
Hey BTW Wouldn’t it be better to allow some level of customisation before the publicize automatically posts the new link onto facebook.
Something on the lines of this-
allows me to share the link a new post of mine http://2600hertz.wordpress.com/2010/02/22/ntt-docomo-do-the-new-separable-phone/
How about that!!
Feb 27th at 6:48 am
Yay! You guys rockkkk!
I must stop sucking up to the WP team everytime a new feature is released, though. It’s corny…
Feb 27th at 6:50 am
Fantastic , now we can really be read world wide…Good job WordPress…!
Feb 27th at 6:53 am
I already do this with another utility, network blogs
Feb 27th at 6:58 am
woo hoo! love this! especially that it’s customizable!
Feb 27th at 7:13 am
But the post from “normal posting” of P2 hasn’t appeared yet…
Feb 27th at 7:15 am
Aah, this is even better
Feb 27th at 7:19 am
sorry my mistake i didn’t authorize it.
Feb 27th at 7:26 am
GOOD! GREAT! GLAD!
Feb 27th at 7:49 am
We like it! Cool.
Feb 27th at 7:55 am
another magic feature from wp, it’s getting better all the time
Feb 27th at 9:19 am
Thanks for this!
Just one question: other Facebook apps allow to include a thumbnail of a picture (included in my WP post) directly into the Facebook announcement (also choosing which picture).
Are you planning to do that with Facebook Publicize? Might be a great teaser for a link to WP.
Also, like many other users I’m looking forward to this app to go with Facebook Pages as well!!
Feb 27th at 9:44 am
cool and kereeeeeeenn
Feb 27th at 9:54 am
Just in time. I was going to dismiss the FB importing feature through “My Notes” cause it’s worthless and not flexible.
Feb 27th at 10:05 am
Nice…… Really Really Nice
Feb 27th at 10:24 am
fantastic! so if I put some photos in my wordpress post, they’ll be visible on my facebook wall if I choose to “publicize” the post, right?
Feb 27th at 11:25 am
Awesome…I love this!
Feb 27th at 11:59 am
Feb 27th at 12:14 pm
@Vikas you can use Network Publisher for your .org blog – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/network-publisher/

Thanks for doing this! I have two facebook pages – one personal and one fan page. Will the posts go to both sites? Or is there a way to direct the posts to both?
Feb 27th at 1:24 pm
great …i will have this when i join facebook
Feb 27th at 1:25 pm
wow, i m lovin it. really useful. kudos to wordpress!

NEVER TOO LATE I BEEN WATING ON THE GATE
Feb 27th at 2:30 pm
It is great, thank u!
Now waiting for a option to post to a facebook page, not personal acc
Feb 27th at 2:51 pm
This is too awesome!!! Thank you WordPress. Love you
Feb 27th at 2:57 pm
Veddy, veddy nice to know!
Feb 27th at 3:03 pm
way awesome!!!! =D
Feb 27th at 3:20 pm
Feb 27th at 3:21 pm
Great I think
Feb 27th at 3:25 pm
Awesome! Finally, an update that affects me!
But does this import all your WordPress posts?
Feb 27th at 3:58 pm
If I already have my blog linked with facebook like I did when I 1st set up my facebook account,wouldn’t this cause double posts to facebook if this feature was enabled now? Seems like it would the equivalent to double linking.
Feb 27th at 4:18 pm
Feb 27th at 4:21 pm
This was one feature i was waiting for since so long!
Feb 27th at 4:43 pm
Love it – well done!
Feb 27th at 4:57 pm
I agree with some of the other comments. It really needs the option of posting to my fan page. When you do, PLEASE make sure to handle photos as well as text.
Feb 27th at 4:59 pm
This is awesome and fun
Feb 27th at 5:09 pm
Feb 27th at 5:18 pm
Love the ease of use and user friendly downloads, rules, etc. Liking WP more every day. Awesome!!
Feb 27th at 5:20 pm
So glad you’re looking into linking to pages — any sense of timeframe on that?
Feb 27th at 5:20 pm
finally it’s here
Feb 27th at 5:24 pm
This is a great functionality making it easier to share blog’s release from the dashboard.
Thank you guys.
Feb 27th at 5:37 pm
Are WP blogs opened up within Facebook, or do these register as Facebook blogs? The latter would undercut WP readership and WP pageview numbers, not a very beneficial outcome.
Feb 27th at 5:46 pm
very useful feature.although I had use import blog feature in facebook notes.
Feb 27th at 6:08 pm
This is wonderful! I’m using it and it’s easy and handy. Saves work and time too.
Feb 27th at 6:27 pm
This is great, now we (or at least myself) don’t have to use multiple apps/sites just to publish to Facebook.
Feb 27th at 7:02 pm
where can i find plugins menu?
Feb 27th at 8:40 pm
I think that it’s a really useful feature… before this I have to use other “tool” to post my post on FB… Thanks WP.com
Feb 27th at 8:56 pm
I just installed this capability to post to Facebook. I must say that it WAS a tedious process, but it finally executed. This will be a real time-saver resulting in greater exposure and “reach;” Reach, that is, provided it works seemlessly. Time will tell.
Feb 27th at 9:06 pm
I have been waiting for it.
Feb 27th at 9:47 pm
cool, much needed
Feb 27th at 9:51 pm
Very nice – much appreciated!
Feb 27th at 10:00 pm
I already did that using the Blog/RSS import on Facebook (I can never remember how to get to it, so I’ll mention, you go to your profile page, click options, then settings [because somehow settings are different from options?] then Blog/RSS and paste in the RSS url of you blog.) I’ll try doing it this new way though, since Facebook quite often imports things multiple times via the method I’m using now, and also, it copies the content from the RSS feed, which can sometimes have stuff from unpublished drafts in it that I don’t want people to see (as I mentioned on http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/rss-showing-unpublished-draft-of-post-as-well-as-the-finished-version )
Feb 27th at 11:48 pm
hi please help me connect with facebook…..
Feb 28th at 12:03 am
good job guys
Feb 28th at 12:25 am
Finally WP supports update to facebook status…. NICE
Feb 28th at 12:53 am
Thanks for this new feature! I’ve been using FB’s method of posting my blog there, but haven’t really liked it–and I never know when it’s going to post. You put us in control! Thanks!
