Sync WordPress and Facebook

If you have a WordPress site and you keep your blog up to date, then you probably want to share it with everyone on the internet. A good start for this is Facebook. You can actually sync your WordPress and Facebook accounts, so every time you publish an article on your WordPress page, they’ll automatically share a link on Facebook.

Method. 1 Use Jetpack to link your Facebook account

  • If you have a WordPress.com site, then you have Jetpack installed. If you have a self-hosted WordPress site, you can simply install Jetpack by creating a WordPress.com account and then syncing your self-hosted page with WordPress.com. 

1. Go to WordPress. com.

2. Log into the dashboard of your WordPress page. Click Jetpack in the Dashboard menu on the left side of the page. Jetpack can be found below Welcome.

3. Find the Publish field on the Jetpack page. Click on “Configure”.

4. Click on the link next to Facebook. A pop-up will appear asking you to sign in to your Facebook account; You’ll be asked if you’d like to link your page to your Facebook profile or any other sites you have access to.

5. Choose the appropriate page or profile. Select the preferred selection under “Make this link available to all users of this blog?” and click on “OK”. You have now synced a Facebook account with your blog.

  • When you write articles, you’ll see a Publish link with the Facebook logo next to it in the top right corner of the Publish field. The title of the WordPress article is automatically sent as a post on Facebook. You can change it or add hashtags by clicking the edit link next to it.

Method. 2 Link Facebook to a WordPress page via Social

  • As with anything in WordPress, there is more than one plug-in to perform a task. 

1. Sign in to your WordPress dashboard.

2. Move your mouse over plug-ins. This can be found in the menu on the left side of the dashboard.

  • Then click on “Add new” in the drop-down menu.

3. Type “Social” in the search box. Find the plug-in that is probably at the top.

4. Click on “Install now”. This button is usually next to the plug-in.

5. Click on “Activate plug-in”.

6. Move your mouse over “Settings”. This is in the dashboard in the left menu. Then click on “Social” in the drop-down menu.

7. Click on the button “Login with Facebook”. This should be at the top of the page titled Social. A pop-up prompts you to sign up for Facebook, and once you’ve done that, you’ll be asked for permission to post in your feed.

  • Grant the permission by clicking on the Authorize app button.

8. Spread your new articles. In addition to the heading “Dissemination Enabled for,” there are check boxes for which event triggers a broadcast. Depending on the installed plug-ins, you may see more than articles and pages. Select “Article”.

  • Select “Include comments from Facebook and Twitter”. This is useful if you want the reactions from your Facebook history to be published on your WordPress page.
  • Next to the heading “Published Article Format” is a text box that allows you to create the template for your tweets. There are a number of dynamic features that you can use, and you can also add your own text.
  • The next one is “Format of Comments”, which allows you to customize the template as comments from social media pages are posted on your page. As before, you can also select dynamic features for the template.

9. Save your settings. If you’re satisfied with what the automated posts look like, then you can click “Save Settings” at the bottom of the page.
