Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter

I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.

Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”

Automating posts to Google+

I’d like to post my blog stream to google+, but it seems overly difficult to do.

  1. http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-auto-post/ is a plugin, which relies on you using/having Google Voice.
  2. http://techblog.tv/auto-post-to-google-plus-from-wordpress/ hosts a video that shows how to use Hootsuite to autopost to Google +,  as does this, How to auto publish blog post to google plus page at shoutmeloud

I wonder if NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster will do it. 2 June 2014

Other resources are,

  1. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/need-plug-in-that-sends-wp-blog-posts-to-google-account, an incomplete thread on how to do it, the later correspodents explore doing it javascript but as of yet have published no code. It suggests that its a security issue rather than a market positioning thing; I am not sure.
  2. This, http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/google-plus/ talks about going the other way, and using the various share/add this button sets to post to google+ on a one click basis, it also talks about google friend connect, but mainly the wrong way
  3. There are a number of share this button plugins, but it’s possible that not all have google+ buttons.
  4. IFTTT doesn’t yet have Google+ as an output channel

Since Facebook permit this, I can’t believe that Google’ll keep this secret since they are all looking to own the social network, and leverage the “who you know” graph. I think I want this to converse with people on Google+ and I think that the Circles are more appropriate for many relationships
