    Heya guys, are there any plugins or other easy ways to get your wordpress posts to also appear on sites like Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr?

    I have just started out with social medias, and have gotten a Pin Blaster, TumbleNinja and Tweet Adder 4, im focusing on those 3 platforms, so i got
    all the follow/unfollowing tools part done, and it seems to be getting me some new followers a day. My main site is a funny animal pictures wordpress site (mostly as a test project, dont expect to get rich of it), but i reccon i post
    way to little content, to now i have only added a post or 2 to the blog, then added them manually to the social sites, doesnt seem to do much good. Im having the hardest time getting followers on Pinterest. How much do you guys reccon i should post?

    All other tips on how to grow followers are also most welcome :]

    Sounds like you're looking for the NextScripts plugin. Don't have any experience with it, but it requires a paid upgrade for Pinterest. Perhaps someone with experience with it could chime in?

    Hunter, I have theNextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster plugin - the free, single user version. I have only used it for Twitter (works good) because I hate dealing with the social part so much I procrastinate setting up and configuring all of the accounts. Anyways, mine says:

    Add New Account: [​IMG] You can add Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Blogger/Blogspot, Delicious, etc accounts

    I clicked on adding the Pinterest account but it says:

    Pinterest doesn't have a built-in API for automated posts yet.

    You need to get a special API Library Module to be able to publish your content to Pinterest.

    The API Libary Module part links out to the plugin maker's site.That's as far as I'm going because it looks like too much work for me to play around with their extra scripts.

    It also says I can upgrade to the paid multiple accounts edition to get G+ and Pinterest auto-posting, fwiw.

    You could try out the free version and see what happens. It looks like it is possible but not without some work.

    I wasn't really active on Pinterest .. but 1 interesting I noticed is that I do not get any followings for 1-2 week after I posted my stuff .. then suddenly people started following .. not sure if it is Pinterest's way of preventing spam .. maybe those with more experience with Pin can share :)

    I have now set up NextScripts on Tumblr and Twitter, and it works like a charm! Took me quite some time to tweak it to get it just the way i wanted them to appear, but i guess that was mostly because im dead tired and lose focus a lot. So at least now i never have to even login to Tumblr and Twitter, since Wordpress takes care of posting, and my bots takes care of following/liking.

    Tomorrow i will try to get Pinterest added, and i guess i will do the same on all other options available, even if i havent heard of several, guess it wont hurt since its a one time task. Ill update thread again tomorrow with new results.

    What does the autopost look like? Is it just a repost of a blog post or what?

    It looks just like any other manual Tumblr /Twitter post, there are many variable options you can choose from, to make the post appear the way you want

    Today i bought the 49.95$ upgrade as well to get Pinterest to work, also set it up on StumbleUpon and Plurk. Everything went smoothly, can highly recommend this plugin, saves me tons of time now. Set & forget.
