Instapaper is a social media network that allows you to save articles and links to be read later in a web browser or on mobile devices running on iOS or Android (operating systems) or on an Amazon Kindle device.
The Instapaper platform allows you to save web pages that you select via "bookmarklet" and presents the articles they contain in a minimal, comfortable layout optimized for convenient reading.
The service was founded in 2008 by Marco Arment and had about 2 million members in 2011. In August 2016, the company announced its acquisition by Pinterest.
Instapaper provides you with the handy option to create a browser shortcut that is linked to a self created folder on Instapaper in order to save links while surfing the web on desktop devices practically. For bulk processes, it is also possible to import or export bookmarks and links with .csv files.
With Blog2Social, you can easily schedule and share your WordPress website links automatically to your Instapaper account.
Just authenticate your profile/account with your access credentials in the Blog2Social network overview to connect your Instapaper profile/account to the Blog2Social plugin.
Follow a few simple steps to connect Blog2Social and benefit from a connection that allows you to share your WordPress website content automatically to one of the most popular bookmarking and reading social media networks.
Instapaper also provides you with a useful and practical function to use an RSS feed function. It is possible to generate an RSS feed from your bookmarklets in order to get updates of new bookmarklets for external sites and social media networks.
Follow these easy steps to get your RSS feed:

These Instapaper RSS feeds could be also auto-posted with Blog2Social and an RSS feed import plugin from your choice to other social media networks like Facebook (profile & page), Twitter, Google My Business and Telegram. This can be easily achieved with the Auto-Poster for imported posts from Blog2Social and a matching Blog2Social license (Smart and above).
