Social Plugin for WordPress Updated

Social, the WordPress plugin we created with the fine folks at CrowdFavorite, has just gotten an update that introduces some new features, improved performance, and a few bug fixes. You might recall that it’s a great way to connect the conversations that are happening on Facebook and Twitter about your WordPress content. Social aggregates comments onto your blog, and helps you broadcast to social channels when you blog. Oh, and it’s still totally free.

Update to Social Plugin for WordPress

We recently released a cool little WordPress plugin called Social that pulls the conversations on Twitter and Facebook about your blog into each post and makes it easy to broadcast to social channels when you publish. We were scratching our own itch. We’ve pined for a better way to handle comments on our blog, so we teamed up with our friends at Crowd Favorite to make a tailor-made solution. It turns out that we’re not alone. Ten thousand people have tried Social on their blogs too. After months of usage, we discovered a few things we could do better. Today we’re releasing Social 2.0 with a whole bunch of improvements.

Using Posterous To Drive Facebook Fan Engagement

In June of this year I decided to set up an offshoot of the MailChimp blog on Posterous. The site bills itself as "a dead simple way to post everything online using email."

The simple answer: the more I use Posterous, the more I love it! — Especially for the particular niche it serves.
