The second you publish a new post on WordPress.com, you can instantly share it on Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and now Tumblr with a feature called Publicize. This helps you get exposure to multiple audiences without having to manually share your content on all your favorite social sites.
With Publicize, you can make WordPress.com your home on the web and automatically share your content on five other social platforms. By publishing to WordPress.com, you maintain ownership of your content, which you can choose to export at any time.
After you have connected, your new posts will be shared on Tumblr and no other action is needed.
We also have a Tumblr sharing button you may not have seen, which can be displayed at the bottom of your posts and pages. With this enabled, your readers can share your posts on their own Tumblr blogs quickly and easily. Visit your Settings → Sharing panel to enable this under the “Sharing Buttons” section.
As part of our updates we have removed Messenger Connect as a supported service and have centralized Publicize options under Settings → Sharing.

Thank You! Just what I needed!

I’m so excited!! I’ve been waiting on this!!!

What about photo posts? Is there a way to publicize a WordPress post, with images, as a Tumblr photo post? Or at lesst have them visible through the Tumblr dash?

Well this is wonderful
Jun 6th at 9:05 pm
I’m still a rookie so pardon the question but is this a plug-in? I don’t seem to have a SHARING in my settings…
Jun 6th at 9:07 pm
Hmmm, the sharing on Tumblr doesn’t handle captions very well… Off to tall Support about it.
Jun 6th at 9:23 pm
Nice. Only if it would not just cut off the last word in the few lines shared…
Jun 6th at 9:23 pm
Another great addition!
Jun 6th at 9:24 pm
It’s great to have another option like that. I hope that publicizing to Google+ is comming soon!
Jun 6th at 9:32 pm
Excellent! Thank you!
Jun 6th at 9:38 pm
My photos are often only showing up as a polaroid symbol or not at all when I auto-share to my Tumblr (http://grapefriend.tumblr.com) – any ideas why?
Jun 6th at 9:55 pm
This is great! I don’t have to share it manual then anymore! Thanks for the upgrading.
Jun 6th at 10:03 pm
This is what I’ve been waiting on BigUps WordPress!!
Jun 6th at 10:10 pm
What about using this on sites that are self hosted?
Jun 6th at 10:18 pm
Is this available for non-Wordpress.com WordPress blogs?
Jun 6th at 10:38 pm
Hmmm…. Well, I don’t have “Sharing” in my settings options (I have Share This) and when I tried to install the Tumblr plugin it failed. any ideas folks?

I have a question regarding Facebook connection: I have a WordPress Blog, a Facebook “Page” and my Facebook “personal page”. The idea is to use WordPress as the main blog place, then publish each post at my Facebook Page automaticaly via “Publicize”. Then I would like to “Share” some posts that were publicized at the Facebook Page to my personal page. The problem is that posts publicized by WordPress in Facebook do not have Facebook’s “Share” button. Only “Like” and “Comment”.
So the question is: How can I publicize posts to Facebook that appears there with the “Share” button?
Thanks in advance!

i have my wp connected to tumblr, but it did NOT automatically post to tumblr when i wrote a new post. it’s all connected in my settings / sharing section, but nada. annoying. i did ‘schedule’ my wp post, would that make a difference?
Jun 8th at 4:59 pm
I like it, thank you, but the excerpt is much too short. Will there be an option to choose the exerpt length? Or an option to send the whole post?

Waiting for PUBLICIZE for self hosted sites as well.

It is a really cool feature. It will help us ‘missile’ our posts around the world!
Jun 10th at 6:04 pm
How does it work? It shares the photos only? or the featured image? or the entire post? (incase I’m using a photo based theme on tumblr)
Jun 11th at 10:19 am
Would like to see images/photos from my posts show up in my Tumblr posts like in facebook, once this feature is added it will be great. I hope this issue will be addressed soon.
Jun 11th at 6:01 pm
I’m so looking fordward to Publicize for the wordpress.org platform… Is there any scalability issue that makes it impossible?

When I hit the “connect to Tumblr”, I get other windows and requests for email, password, etc, etc. With each post, I see that Tumblr is not connected and I go through the same routine. What am I doing wrong?
