Share It Again: New Social Media Features for Premium and Business Users

Premium and Business users can now re-share posts to social media, using our new Targeted Social Media feature.

Sharing your posts on social media is a great way to ensure your site or blog gets traffic. Our Publicize feature makes it easy to automatically share your new posts on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks.

But what about your previously published posts? For posts that are always relevant or valuable to new readers, you may want to share them again — weeks, months, or even years later.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce a new re-sharing feature for our WordPress.com Premium and Business users. Now, you can share your previously published posts on social networks — with custom messaging for each social network too.

Just go to the Blog Posts section of your site, select Share, and you’ll see the new sharing menu for reposting to your social accounts:

Then you’re all set!

A brief word on social media strategy:

Make sure your posting schedule and frequency of posts take into account your followers’ needs and expectations. For example: with social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter, we do not recommend sharing the same post over and over — your account should contain a mix of links to your blog, your thoughts, and comments, all spaced apart.

People around the world browse social media 24 hours a day,  so repeating content in distant time zones helps widen your audience, but know that users may not appreciate seeing the same link multiple times.

You can learn more about growing your audience and specific tips for highlighting your archives in Blogging University.
We’re excited about these new features, and we hope you enjoy it.

    This is a great feature, but as a Business user, I don’t see it available. Is this only featured in the fancy overlay interface? Does this functionality appear in the original backend Admin area? If so, where?

    How do you predict this will affect SEO. I’ve read it’s not good to duplicate content because of peramaters set by google.

      Linking from social media actually helps your site, especially if many profiles publish your content. Even though it may be somewhat duplicating, Google realises that the more people share your post, the better it must be.

    This sounds great but how do you have your blog posted to instagram? There is no icon for that.

    I just tried to use it, but it says I need to “Upgrade to Premium”. ??? I already have Premium, which is due for renewal in the middle of next month… there should be no issue with my using this feature.

      Since we JUST launched this feature, it is possible that your admin panel is not refreshed yet.
      If you close all browser windows and open http://wordpress.com again, the option should be there!
      If not – please contact support, we’re happy to help!

    Yippee! You know the “Share” buttons at the end of each post? Could you add the ability to download a .docx file with the post’s content. Thank you.

    Yup, I’m aware of scheduling on publicize. But, I was hoping if you guys could add automation to old posts being shared on social media.
