WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a plugin available that will automatically post an excerpt of a blog post (perhaps up to the more tag) to specified social media groups/pages. So, for example, on posting an excerpt would be posted with a 'Read more' link to a user-defined Facebook group, G+ page and, possibly, twitter feed?

If not, is there a method for automating this process? Or is copy>paste the only realistic option?

(I know that Dsiqus provides the ability to link comments and social media but this functionality doesn't extend to posts, as I understand it.)

Search for plugins: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-twitter-connect/ and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-google-connect/

All require applications be built at each service for different levels of interaction with a Wordpress site, including automatic excerpt posting (except for G+), tweeting and linking.

The Google one doesn't autopost at this time. I don't believe that functionality exists yet for G+. The other 2 are fantastic however! –  Rev. Voodoo Apr 3 '12 at 12:57
+1 for G+ as they don't have a POST api yet, so you can't post content via code. –  Rutwick Gangurde Apr 3 '12 at 13:02
Cheers very much for that - Facebook was really the central one I was after, so this should more than fit the bill. –  shngrdnr Apr 3 '12 at 13:04
I hadn't counted on the need for FB account verification before being able to set up integration. I'm uncertain as to whether I trust FB enough to do this, but I think the plugins above would have been/will be the ones I go for if and when this happens. –  shngrdnr Apr 4 '12 at 9:36

Social is great for Facebook and Twitter integration.
