Using Jetpack to Share Your Content

Do I have a WordPress.com-hosted site, or a self-hosted WordPress.org site?

You can read about the difference here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

What is Jetpack?

Jetpack is a free plugin that brings many of WordPress.com’s special features to self-hosted WordPress.org sites. For example: amazing photo galleries, infinite scroll, site stats, a server uptime monitor, contact forms, and more.

What will sharing tools do for me?

Jetpack sharing features make your life easier and help your content go further by reaching the people in your networks with minimal effort from you, and those useful, valid links back to your content have the added benefit of being great for SEO.

Where? How? What?

Publicize makes it easy to share your site’s posts on several social media networks (currently Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Path, Google+) automatically when you publish a new post.
Jetpack sharing buttons provide a one-click way for your readers to post your content to their networks.
Jetpack like buttons give your lurkers a way to show their appreciation without saying too much. (The Like button is only available to logged-in WordPress.com users, though.)
Jetpack subscriptions keep them coming back! Your readers can sign up to receive an automatic email notification whenever you publish a new post.
Beyond sharing.
Offer a place for your readers to communicate with you and each other, using Jetpack comments. And check out the Jetpack extra widgets that come with it, particularly the Facebook Like Box, the Twitter Timeline, or Jetpack social media icons for your sidebars and footers.
If you have questions about the Jetpack plugin, you can ask the team directly on the Jetpack contact page.
