Share Your Steem Blogs to Other Social Media Perfunctory

in steem •  10 months ago  (edited)

A few hours ago, eSteem announced the addition of RSS into its website. RSS has a lot of use cases, one of which enables users to automatically share their RSS feeds to other platforms like WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, profile or page, Instagram, etc.

Your RSS feed URL is https://esteem.app/@username/rss

Let's Get Started With IFTTT

Visit IFTTT and sign up an account with your email address, it's fast and simple.

After successful registration, login with your credentials (email & password), you will be redirected to IFTTT homepage containing different services/apps we can initiate.

We are interested in RSS Applets, use the search bar at the top of the website to search for the keyword "RSS", it will bring out all connections and services related to RSS.

There are more than ten (10) connections that can be used with RSS on this page. If you want to share your RSS Feed to Twitter automatically as it's updated, select RSS to Twitter. You can use the same approach for other connections available, it's intuitive, just select and follow the screen instructions.

Authorize your Twitter account with IFTTT (Your Twitter account can be used with further apps without authorization). After doing this, you'll be redirected to the panel you input your RSS URL.

Click Save. And now your RSS Feed is connected with your Twitter account.

This will save us from sharing our post manually to other social media platforms. The only disadvantage I see here is that there is no setting available to set default #tags in IFTTT. All in all, still good for those of us who don't share out our content out of STEEM.

Good way to automate the sharing of your Steem content to other social media! Will certainly try that out. I also didn't know about the new feature from eSteem before reading this post

good, now couple this with a referral program so you can automatically post to social medias AND get referrals for signing them up and I'm in :) @esteem

@esteemapp @good-karma

Referral program is on to do list!

I assume that the twitter tweets posted this way will be too generic for my tastes (probably only the title and link to the post.) I like to share my posts on twitter, but I also like to add a flavour text and images to these shares... So for now, I'll stick to the good old manual posting.

Very important! I've just set this up... waiting to test it.

Nice tutorial/article. I'm down to help anyone who is interested in implementing a method for including the referral/sign-up bonuses when things from our feed are posted to external social media accounts. Feel free to hit me up and let me know.
