I don’t have any comments about the plugin, but I do have an opinion about automated cross-posting. I don’t think it is a good practice. I would much rather encourage my clients to take the 5 extra minutes to post manually on Facebook (or into any of the scheduling tools) and write a customized intro paragraph appropriate for Facebook and their Facebook community.
Isn’t social media about making connections? You can’t make a connection through an API or automated feed.
While they are there, I advise my clients to poke around, read items in their news feed, comment, like, etc.
I just don’t like the whole social-media-as-my-personal-PR-machine mentality. I’m not against tools making things easier, or helping us schedule delivery at optimal times. I feel like it loses all of the personal touch when an algorithm creates your intro paragraph based on WordPress content.
Just my opinion.
