Dries Buytaert wrote about how he wants to cross-post from his Drupal blog to Facebook. My experience with cross-posting to silos is that it doesn’t work. I wrote a comment on his post relating my experience. (No fancy tech, just copy/paste.)
Hi Dries — I use Facebook and Twitter, and have no plans to stop either, but the primary place I write is my blog. I tried to make cross-posting work, for years, and finally realized it cant work, unless each of the silos want it to, and of course none of them do.
I also included Medium in my attempt to set up a cross-posting system.
I wrote this blog post when I gave up.
I do however mirror my linkblog to both Twitter and Facebook, and the Links tab on my blog, and its own RSS feed. I guess that’s a POSSE approach. I use my own linkblogging software, Radio3.
