If done correctly, auto posting to Facebook and Twitter is a fast and convenient way to save a lot of time and promote your products as well as content alike. Therefore, it is essential to be present on both networks and to share your own as well as curated content.
In this article, we explain, how you can auto post imported RSS feeds as WordPress posts to Facebook and Twitter.
Why auto posting imported RSS feeds as blog posts to Facebook and Twitter can add value to your accounts
Sometimes you might stress about publishing new and valuable content every few days. This process might become overly challenging and time-consuming.
But, don’t worry. There is so much information out there that you can add value to your blog and social media accounts by sharing the cherries of that knowledge and recommend it to your audience.
This is called content curation.
Curating content is about sharing the best and most relevant articles, videos, infographics, etc. from various sources with your audience to provide them with even more value.
This applies to the sharing of social media posts as well as to your own website or blog content.
But, researching, editing, and publishing suitable articles on your own blog and social media can consume a lot of time.
Therefore, it can be of advantage to automatically import external articles, newspaper reports or blog posts via RSS feed or content auto-poster to your own blog. Then, you can auto-post the imported blog posts to Twitter and Facebook using the social media automation application Blog2Social.

Did you know?If you set the auto poster for imported posts on ‘immediately’, your imported blog posts will be shared to the selected networks the moment the article is published on WordPress.
If you set the auto poster for imported posts on a 1-10 minutes delay, your imported posts will be shared with a delay of 1-10 minutes. This is especially helpful if you post several imported WordPress posts at the same time and want to share the corresponding social media posts at different times rather than all at once.

Save your settings and that’s it. Your imported and published blog posts will be automatically shared to your selected Twitter profile and Facebook pages, and groups.
