    Hey BHW,

    Whenever I write a new article I have to handpost and format it to: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon and Tumblr. It takes 15 minutes, give or take. It's a waste of time.

    I've already added the Facebook function post to Twitter. But I was wondering if there's a way to Post from: Google --> Facebook ---> Twitter, etc.

    I used the tumblr to Facebook and Twitter, but tumblr formats the post and adds links (which I don't like).

    How do you do it?

    Thanks for your reply,

    I tried it If This Then That.. I didn't understand it at all. I installed buffer and everything, and just nothing happened..

    I presume you're using Wordpress cms?

    I use Next Scripts: Social Networks Auto Poster, after a bit of work you can customise it for all the platforms you need (the pro version is needed for Pinterest, G+, and also gives you the ability to add more than one social account on each platform).

    You can also format the way you want the posts to look in the admin area.

    Works wonders for me, and saves a bunch of time.

    There are some WP plugins you can install on a site.
    If you are posting those articles to your website, just add a social media plugin and you'll be solid.

    I'd really love to learn to use IFTTT properly, the reason being is I like to post quotes everyday, so If i could post it to one account and it could spread to the rest, then I wouldn't mind manually posting 1 link + a few quotes a day. It'd take less than 5 minutes.

    I will try snap and see how I can use it. Thank you.
