We wanted to update you about an upcoming change Facebook is introducing to their platform, and which affects how you may share posts from your WordPress.com website to your Facebook account.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the tool for WordPress.com and Jetpack-powered sites that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? It depends. If you’ve connected a Facebook Profile to your site, then yes: Publicize will no longer be able to share your posts to Facebook. On the other hand, nothing will change if you keep a Facebook Page connected to your site — all your content should still appear directly on Facebook via Publicize. (Not sure what the difference is between a Page and a Profile? Here’s Facebook’s explanation.)
If you’ve previously connected a Facebook Profile to your WordPress.com site and still want your Facebook followers to see your posts, you have two options. First, you could go the manual route: once you publish a new post, copy its URL and share the link in a new Facebook post. (You can also share right from the WordPress mobile apps after a scheduled post goes live.)
The other option is to convert your Facebook Profile to a Page. This might not be the right solution for everyone, but it’s something to consider if your website focuses on your business, organization, or brand.
While Facebook is introducing this change to improve their platform and prevent the misuse of personal profiles, we know that this might cause a disruption in the way you and your Facebook followers interact. If you’d like to share your concerns with Facebook, head to their Help Community.

How and why do you choose the theme for your blog? Do you base your preference in a special kind of design, colors, lines, columns, sidebars, out of this world features, widgets? Does it have to be versatile or simple, vibrant, humble, elegant, challenging,
We bloggers at WordPress have a vast variety of themes where to choose and the best of all is that Google crawls its robots frequently and efficiently. I prefer to be modern in my blogging, versatile with lots of features and coding, I love coding: html, and the future of WYSIWYG in blogging looks exciting.
I’ve been following and reading a number of blogs for over five years now. I remember this blog by a Romanian journalist; I would spend hours reading the posts, the comments — oh, the comments were so funny and great. It was quite addictive. He got an insane number of comments, and I was jealous […]
I am a blogger because I love writing, photographing, communicating with other people who are like-minded, exchange ideas, teach others what I know and learn from others mental and soul wonders so we can all share, connect, inspire and grow.
Educating myself and advancing in my blogging is what I have decided today, that is why I want to set some goals and sharing them with my followers, contacts, family and friends:
- Blogging at least 3 times a week
- Interacting more often with my followers
- Increasing my followers count
- Motivating comments in my blog
- Commenting more often in my followers blog
Happy blogging everyone….and please….WISH me luck 🙂 !
King of the Hill, a very popular show who has inspired many to enjoy the “Trill City” concept. Shirts, mugs, videos and countless of entry blogs have been made and created, not only in the US, but also in Australia and England.
Reblogged and reposted innumerably, “King of the Trill” was clearly Trill City’s most popular design. The phrase had already been coined by Bun B. He even used it as a mixtape title. Despite the similar sound to Mike Judge’s “King of the Hill”, the connection between the two had never been made popular or even apparent until we put it on the internet.
The portrait of Hank Trill is a great combination. It brings together the cartoon series known for characterizing our state so accurately, with another Texas legacy, “Trill”. The fusion of these two concepts not only makes sense, it is an obvious advancement for fans of rap, animation, humor, and Texas pride. Although clever, it is perhaps lucky that Trill City came up with it first. And while biters should never be condoned, it was inevitable that it would be copied. King of the Trill
