Experimenting with Ping.fm to update websites

Trying out Ping.fm to update Facebook, Twitter and WordPress blog from 1 site. Plan to use this to update our Kiwanis service websites too.

Update: Ping.fm is a free service that seems to work quite well. All my updates can be made from 1 location and that will save me a little time in the future.

Now…back to the pottery studio!

  1. Interesting, I’ve never heard of ping.fm, although generally I’m not keen on sites where you update multiple things at once. I just really like the control of individually updating each site with unique content. Gives people a reason to stay alert to your status updates.

    • I agree about wanting to control the updates of individual sites. But, sometimes time is hard to find. Using social networks like your blog, facebook, or twitter is a great way to contact customers and keep in touch with friends, but you do have to put time into the effort. Sometimes, a little tool like ping.fm allows you to make a quick note to all your social media and let people know you are still in the loop. My schedule is so busy that I sometimes have a hard time even getting to 1 of my social media accts at the end of a day. Ping and little tools like it do help out in a crunch.
