When we got our page at Facebook (facebook.com/XavierMedia) we noticed a need to publish updates from our WordPress blog to the page at Facebook. Since we couldn’t find any good plugins for this (doing exactly what we wanted), we simply created our own plugin.
The WP Email-to-Facebook plugin (or sometimes also called WP Email-to-Facebook page plugin) is simply just sending an email to the email address belonging to your page (yes, all pages at Facebook got their own private email address for mobile updates). You can specify to update different pages depending on the categories you’ve selected for your post and each category can update a different page. So if you lets say have 10 categories you can update 10 Facebook pages from the same post (if you have selected all 10 categories for your blog post that is).
You can of course update just one Facebook page and in that case you do like we’ve done for this blog and fill in the same email address for all your categories. Only one email per email address will be sent so only one update will occur 😉
The setup is simple, just download the latest version of the plugin from WordPress and upload it to your plugin directory. Then go to the settings page for the plugin inside WordPress and fill in the email addresses you want to be updated when you make new posts.
The email address for a Facebook page can be found by selecting “Edit Page” > “Mobile”. The email address is unique to each page and you should keep it a sekret so spammers can’t figure it out to spam your Facebook page.
More information about this plugin can be found at WordPress.
