One of the ideas I wanted to do was to integrate a WordPress blog with Twitter and Facebook. I did some research.
This article showed a good method – Use WordPress to update Twitter & Facebook. I signed up for an account at Twitterfeed. It was very straightforward process. I created a new feed and added the WordPress RSS feed URL. I configured the links to Twitter and Facebook.
But, then I learned about FeedBurner. The benefit of using FeedBurner was that you could then track the number of people looking at your RSS feed. So, I created an account at FeedBurner and added the blog RSS feeds to create a new RSS feed. I took that feed and added it to Twitterfeed.
This is a lot of setup work but does provide a lot of benefits in integrating social media with your WordPress blog and providing tracking.
