You now have an RSS feed setup and you want to post your content to Facebook and Twitter automatically, but how do you do this?

One option and it's the one I use is a tool called If This Then That or IFTTT for short. Basically it says if this event happens then this event should happen. So if a new post is added to your RSS feed, then it should be posted to Twitter, and the same for Facebook.

I actually made two IFTTT applets, one for Facebook and one for Twitter which you can find here. When you click Connect you will need to find your RSS link which should look like https://example.com/rss.xml, copy and paste this link into the form field and click next. You will then need to connect your Facebook and or Twitter account (depending on which applet you have chosen).

When you have finished this, you are done. However, your blog posts won't start automatically posting any posts which you have already created. Once you have written up a new post and hit publish, it will display on your chosen social networks. It might take a minute or two to post, but it will go up there.
