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 :)
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…
Hmmm, the sharing on Tumblr doesn’t handle captions very well… Off to tall Support about it.
Nice. Only if it would not just cut off the last word in the few lines shared…
Another great addition!
It’s great to have another option like that. I hope that publicizing to Google+ is comming soon!
Excellent! Thank you!
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?
This is great! I don’t have to share it manual then anymore! Thanks for the upgrading. :)
This is what I’ve been waiting on BigUps WordPress!!
What about using this on sites that are self hosted?
Is this available for non-Wordpress.com WordPress blogs?
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!

OK, but why still no Google+?

Very nice WordPress! This certainly makes life very easy for those of us who still use both networks…though lately I’m preferring WordPress.com to Tumblr.
This is great feature..thanks wordpress once again for making this world better place to live.
Gosh! I just deactivated my tumblr account for I don’t want to post manually from WP to tumblr. Hehe. Great Work WordPress! I’m thinking of activating tumblr back. Soon though! Thanks again. ;)
GREAT GREAT GREAT idea!!!!
Thank you very much WordPress! That’s what makes you unique!! (thanks to the people who work in!!!! :) )
This is simply great! Congratulations and thanks, WordPress!
Thanks for the info-I will try it.
good idea ! :)
So excited, thank you :)
Can you do the same kind of feature for Identi.ca (and Diaspora if possible) please?
Thanks for the information – appreciate it, especially when it comes to getting the word out there!
Thank you WP :)
Sadly the live messenger option is gone :(
I want to coordinate my posts from Word Press to Tumblr, Posterous, Blogger and Type Pad as well as Facebook. Can this program so that? I’m not so interested in Twitter, Linkedin, etc.

Simplicity is the word of the day.
Great feature, hope you add it to jetpack soon… please
I like it! This is very, very cool…..
I like it! Thank you.
Thank you! This is very helpful.
Thanks! You all are rock stars! xo
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?
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.
This is excellent, just create my Tumblr account and will be sharing soon :)
A great addition to the Publicize feature!
finally! great news since i also have a blog on tumblr. nice job guys! =)
It is a really cool feature. It will help us ‘missile’ our posts around the world!
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)
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.
I’m so looking fordward to Publicize for the wordpress.org platform… Is there any scalability issue that makes it impossible?

Posting to Facebook
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?
