Social Network Auto Poster (SNAP) is an amazing plugin for WordPress which give you ability to post your blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, Livejournal, Youtube, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Blogger, Diigo, Friendfeed and many more social networks.
What does that mean?
A single blog post on your WordPress blog will be syndicated – automatically posted across all your social accounts. You can get your message across all your social accounts automatically.
Setting up accounts in popular social accounts like Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn requires you to create app and enter api keys, secret keys into SNAP. The plugin itself provides a detailed guide with screenshots on how to create your own apps for auto-posting. Anyone can easily make their apps on these social networks with step by step detailed guide provided. SNAP also provides a PRO plugin which lets you create multiple accounts for each social network account. For personal users, I don’t think this facility is required as such users would ideally have one social account on each network.
Why use SNAP?
- Google has stressed the importance of Social Signals for SEO. This tool might just help in that direction by helping you post to all social accounts in one go.
- For social media marketers who handle social accounts for their clients/companies having a wordpress blog will solve the problem of scheduling/auto posting as it gives a very basic framework to schedule your posts and content. However social media marketing tools like Hootsuite and Sprout Social offer a lot more options to users.
- For companies just starting out with social media campaigns, a wordpress blog with SNAP will help you spread the word, gather analytics of their social profile etc.
