I have been using Twitter to promote my content for quite a few months now (with some very nice results) but the one social networking site that I really wanted to crack was Facebook. I’d heard other people talk about gaining traffic from there and wanted in on the deal.
With that in mind I started to wonder if anybody had developed any WordPress plugins that I could use to help me publish content on Facebook. Not only did I find some but I actually found some bloody good ones that have already started helping me.
I thought that other people might be interested in driving traffic from Facebook, so I have listed the plugins that I use that are related to Facebook.
1-click Retweet/Share/Like – This plugin places small buttons on your post so readers can retweet it on Twitter or publish it on their Facebook accounts.
Facebook Profile Theme – This neat little plugin helps create a tab on your Facebook profile where you can host blog posts.
FT FacePress II – This is my favourite plugin. It publishes the title, link and excerpt of your post onto your wall just like a Facebook update status.
Wordbooker – This pretty much does the same thing as FT FacePress II but it has the options of bringing over comments and polls and a lot more features.
There are of course many many more that I have yet to try but if you want to increase your readership and traffic then I’d suggest starting with these today.
Do you use ones that I have no listed? Why not leave a comment and let us know what they are and what they do?
