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 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.

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.
Aug 8th at 8:47 pm
yay! thank you. I can now publicized directly on my page!!! great great great!
great work you guys!!!
Aug 8th at 8:48 pm
Does the auto-post show up under Facebook Page’s identity or does it show up under the identity of the Facebook account holder?
Aug 8th at 8:54 pm
Perfect! Thank you!
Aug 8th at 9:04 pm
I’ve been using Networked Blogs to do this to my Facebook page, but it’s good to have options
Aug 8th at 9:06 pm
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.
Aug 8th at 9:12 pm
nice… Can I publish to all??
Aug 8th at 9:16 pm
Hey, every time I click the “set options” link…I don’t get a new box, it just disconnects Facebook. I think there may be a glitch
Aug 8th at 9:17 pm
Fantastic! Great add for my Facebook page.
Aug 8th at 9:25 pm
good! but i dont use.
Aug 8th at 9:27 pm
Nice, …… very nice, will definitely be signing up for this one,
Thanks guys for your continuous hard work
Aug 8th at 9:42 pm
Great update !!!! I was waiting for it :)) Thank’s
Aug 8th at 9:43 pm
The publicize function for Facebook no longer includes a photo embedded in a post. If there is a setting I need to enable to niclude photos in FB posts, please let me know.
Aug 8th at 9:48 pm
I recently created a Facebook fan page for my blog and I was wondering how I can auto post my blog entries to that fan page. This update helped me solve the issue.
Aug 8th at 9:53 pm
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?
Aug 8th at 9:57 pm
Great, I’ve been waiting for this. Though I do wish we could be able to publish to both, since they’re both very different audiences.. we have to decide between our friends, or fans. Either way, its awesome that its available, thanks!
Aug 8th at 10:36 pm
THANK YOU!!!! This makes it much easier than constantly having to copy and paste the link to each new post since I write on a fairly consistent basis. So when is the publicize feature for google+ going to be available?
Aug 8th at 10:44 pm
Thanks you for the clarification Scott, I have both .org and .com sites. Publicize is awesome!
Aug 8th at 10:44 pm
And for Google + ?
Aug 8th at 10:47 pm
Doing a happy dance! Great job!
Aug 8th at 10:50 pm
I have a few pages on facebook. For work and otherwise. How do I select which one I wish my blog to access? Or is this not possible yet? I don’t want my wordpress blog posting to a work FB page.
Aug 8th at 10:56 pm
YES finally, thanks a lot
Aug 8th at 11:08 pm
Actually, I WOULD appreciate the ability to “Publicize” to both my Wall AND my Page. Any chance that will be an option in the future?
Aug 8th at 11:19 pm
Any idea when these cool and easy to use features will be available to WordPress.org blog operators???
Aug 8th at 11:34 pm
Great, great, great!!! Thanks for that!!!!!
Aug 8th at 11:54 pm
If I´m logged in to facebook as a page, I have to switch to my personal account, which, I believe, beats the purpose of this.
Aug 9th at 12:24 am
Getting our posts onto Facebook automatically? That’s excellent. I better get into Publicize then. Thanks, WordPress.
Aug 9th at 1:11 am
thanks for the informations
Aug 9th at 1:18 am
This is great. This is the totally people want particularly who rely on facebook traffic. This should be give a test. Thanks to your new features.
Aug 9th at 1:21 am
Look like facebook is the central for all social network, everyone want to connect to it… Would we get the same in future for Google Plus.
Aug 9th at 1:36 am
yeah…I’ve activated it..nice..
Aug 9th at 2:11 am
Fantastic! I have already set it up. I have 6 current blogs and 4 Facebook pages to manage so this is exactly what I needed. Thanks WordPress
Aug 9th at 2:34 am
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.

I love the Facebook page widget!
Aug 9th at 4:02 am
thank you so much…..made my day
i have been waiting this for so long
Aug 9th at 4:11 am
Aug 9th at 4:18 am
This is great incentive to create my Facebook fan page — especially since you can designate to which page (personal or fan) it “publicizes.” I fear my personal friends may be growing tired of my self-promotion…
Aug 9th at 4:28 am
But I can’t figure out how to make it work … it is Theme dependent? I’m using the “freshy” theme. Can you pls tell me if it will currently work for me or it I need to switch themes suggest a few that might do the trick?
Aug 9th at 4:29 am
Awesome! Thanks, I’ve been wishing we could publish to our page instead of our wall. Mahalo!
Aug 9th at 4:34 am
Never mind … I just figured it out … Thanks so much!
Aug 9th at 4:35 am
Felicitaciones, es un buen apoyo al arte y a los artistas.
Gracias por vuestra iniciativa.

Good news !!
Aug 9th at 4:41 am
Thanks, I’ve been waiting for this! You guys never disappoint. =)
Aug 9th at 4:46 am
love the fight club reference!
Aug 9th at 5:01 am
I just was wondering about something like that since Facebook did not longer allow to share the RSS from blogs in new pages!
Thank you very much!
Aug 9th at 5:12 am
Aug 9th at 5:16 am
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”.
> 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.

Aug 9th at 5:37 am
EXCELLENT WORK! I’m among the hoard who have been waiting for this. Thanks!!
Aug 9th at 5:39 am
Can you add a feature by which we can post to Facebook wall, page and group?? Also, what about multiple Twitter accounts?? Please respond!!
Aug 9th at 5:52 am
That’s great work guys… Is G+ coming up?
Aug 9th at 6:02 am
…Este es el complemento que estaba esperando, great work!
Aug 9th at 6:07 am
Thank you, thank you, thank you … this is something I’ve really been waiting for!
Aug 9th at 6:15 am
Aug 9th at 6:30 am
Thanks so much for listening and acting!
Aug 9th at 6:37 am
This works only for blogs on wordpress.com?? Or does this work on self hosted websites? I can´t find the sharing button in my WP-Installation …
Aug 9th at 7:04 am
THIS. Was. What. I. Needed.
Thanks you! lol.
Aug 9th at 7:24 am
This was another helpful hint, I tend to forget about the other end.
Aug 9th at 7:54 am
Great, I realy like this feature
Aug 9th at 7:59 am
so many people mentioned facebook
Aug 9th at 8:00 am
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
Aug 9th at 8:12 am
this option, is really really great, i want to have a facebook page and post there too my wordpress.com posts, i am very pleased with this option! keep up the great work!
Aug 9th at 8:27 am
I am confused on this point, do you have to publicize your post “each” time with Facebook and Twitter or once it is set up with these accounts, is that it and you do not have to do it again?
Aug 9th at 8:53 am
GREAT, I’VE ALREADY DONE! TOO NICE!
Aug 9th at 8:58 am
Hurrah!!! Whoop whoop!!! One VERY happy bunny here, THANK YOU!!!
Aug 9th at 9:03 am
Hallo. I have this problem.
Untill yesterday i use this fantastic support sharing my articles on my fb page (Mark Towers).
Now i’ve created a new page on fb (Rimini Reporter).
I choosed the option facebook but is not possible redirect to the new fb page.
I have wrong something?
Aug 9th at 9:13 am
wonderfully……as the winner of championship, all for the creation of blogs
Aug 9th at 9:26 am
It’s great! I wrote to the team just a few weeks ago telling that I couldn’t connect the posts to my facebook pages and now it’s solved!
Thanks a lot! Now I’lll save a lot of time!
Aug 9th at 10:26 am
I hope I can publish my post both on my page and my wall….
Aug 9th at 10:57 am
This is so great. I’m think of starting a Drama Teacher’s Page on Facebook now because of this. It will keep it separate from my personal Facebook feed. Really, really great!
Aug 9th at 10:57 am
Publicize to Facebook is a great option provided by WordPress. This feature would definitely enhance the effectiveness of online marketing. It seems to be a user-friendly feature. I am sure everyone will derive benefits out of it.
Aug 9th at 11:02 am
It worked for my BCx Blog page but not my pFITblog.com page.
Aug 9th at 11:03 am
Now… If I could just get my ‘publicize to my facebook wall” to actually work…
Aug 9th at 11:38 am
wow.realy it amazing things.I could be used for easily shared our posts..superb
Aug 9th at 12:10 pm
