Post in WordPress from Facebook

As a strong supporter of the Web 2.0 I am always looking for ways to integrate the multiple online services I use. I love Twitterfeed because it allows you to post to Twitter your last posts, I use Google's web applications to share information online every day, I participate in Communities of Practice and I am a user of several social networks .

and WordPress is a strong candidate for socialization.

Of the latter, it may be Facebook the one I like the least, and it's because it has "so many" applications and pijadas it goes without saying that there is no day when a friend (or similar) invites you to try this or that wonderful utility to put glasses on your profile picture, paint pokemons or go and find out what new bullshit you have come up with .

However, there are some applications that are quite useful and allow you to give this network soc more useful ial: the possibility of using your interface – your profile – as an "all in one" page. In this case, nothing better than the use of Facebook to publish entries in WordPress and for this purpose there are two fundamental applications that, at least, you must try.

The first one is already a veteran of Facebook …

WordPress.com for Facebook

With this application you can post new posts to your blog hosted on WordPress.com with great ease, add links to your Blogroll, see the statistics of the blog or even check the news in the feed of your friends that you have added in the InterBlog .

Yes, the editor is the most simple that you can imagine because it does not include a category selector or formatting aids, you can only include Tags.

The other is a newborn …

Blog It

Released by Six Apart the creators of the platforms CMS TypePad Movable Type and Vox offers to go out to the outside world of blogging. Here the list of services where publishing is greatly expanded, including even sites of microblogging .

With Blog It you can post on Typepad, Movable Type, Vox, Blogger , Tumblr, Twitter, Pownce, WordPress.com and own blogs created with WordPress.org like this one without going any further.

As with the application to publish in WordPress.com, you can not choose the category where the new entry will be stored, so your posts created with this tool will always appear in the default category. And, again, you do not have buttons to access format tags, insert images, etc. If you want to add format, links or whatever to your post you will have to do it by writing the HTML tags directly in the post .

That's right, it's perfect for Microblogging services like Twitter or Tumblr where the important thing is the update I have to tell, beyond the aesthetic adornment, and if you learn some basic HTML tags you can publish your stuff quickly and without leaving Facebook.

I tried it with my Tumblr, which I usually only have as a repository of all my publishing activity and the truth is that it works perfectly and the publication was immediate .

] So if you are Facebook user and WordPress I recommend that you try these two applications and see if one adapts to your needs and can help you save time in the publication of your blog.
