Using the Jetpack Publicize WordPress plugin

The Publicize Plugin for WordPress is a great tool. It lets you post to your social media at the same as you make your posts. The social media posts all link back to your blog or website, putting your audience in front of your best content!. In fact it’s likely you are reading this because we used the plugin to broadcast this post.

Once the plugin has been setup you’ll see a Publicize section in the Publish box on your post writing screen each time you write a new post like this one.

Just publish the post as usual, and you’ll see it show up on the services you enabled.

If you want to opt out from any of the Publicize services for a specific post, just click the Publicize Edit link. You can then uncheck whichever services you want. You can also customize the message that gets sent by typing it in to the Custom Message box.

Things to note

  • Saving a post as a Draft will not publicize it.
  • Static pages will not be publicised.
  • Scheduled posts do get publicised – at the time they’re scheduled to publish.
  • Publicize only works for brand new posts that have never been published before. You cannot re-publicize something once it has already been published.
