    Hello,
    I remember that somewere i read that, If the article is copy-paste Google displaying only the author site. Hiding the other results.
    So there are plugins on WP that autoshares your posts on social networks, like Facebook, Twitter etc....
    As the same article goes to your every social network accounts posts is it possible to get some penalty.
    Is it better to spin articles for every network post?

    What it sounds like your talking about is syndicated content. This is fine as far as I know. Just look at it as tons of backlinks pointing back to your site. As long as you're the original author and the links are all pointing back to you "the source" then you will look like an authority. As far the duplicates, they tend to wind up in Google supplementary index.

    Now the main time that duplicate content really becomes an issue is when you have duplicate content on your site. For example, the same content published in 2 or more locations on your site.

    Thanks i understood as if my content is unique all this social signals counts as backlinks to me. If content is duplicated getting negative seo points.
    I asked that because i saw a service. weontech. They are spining the content and sharing on your several social accounts auto. But they didn't have a wordpress plugin. You have to write your content on their webpage.
    I found another service but without spining and alot cheaper and has wordpress plugin and widgets. LinksAlpha.
    So it became interesting What is the benefit of content spining when sharing on several social platforms.

    Well the content spinning part is something many do because they want the different variations to have a chance to rank in the search engines, so yes, that is an advantage if done right. But just because your content is syndicated to other sites (without being spun) and has a link back to your site "the source", there's nothing wrong with this as it would just work to boost your article only. Syndication happens all the time especially with big news style authority sites.
