Post Everything to (almost) Everywhere with Posterous

Posterous LogoPosterous released its AutoPost feature today (GreyReview’d here). Now, users can post content to various blogging platforms, namely Twitter, Blogger, WordPress.com, Typepad, LiveJournal and Xanga. Photos too can be automatically posted to Flickr.

Each time a user sends a post using [email protected], Posterous will send the post to multiple sites (as defined by the user). The user can also specify specific social website to post e.g. to send to Twitter, email ‘[email protected]’ and send to Flickr, email to ‘[email protected]’.

Posterous, popular for its blog-via-email feature, is adopting a similar concept to Ping.fm. With Ping.fm, a user can post their updates to various social services (blogs, micro-blogs and status). However, Ping.fm is more suitable in situations where brevity matters; Posterous is simply a blank canvass for anyone to throw anything at. Now, not only Posterous a blogging/social networking site, it also offers social networks update service. That’s value-added!

  1. Aw man, I love Posterous. I love it’s kill-the-registration-crap business. So refreshing.

  2. Hi there! Thanks for the great review. We’re excited to be developing new things that make life simpler for people.

    ps, your site is fantastic. It might be cool to set up an auto-ping for your blog so that it shows up in Google Blog search. http://blogsearch.google.com/ping <– that’s the manual way but there’s a great plugin somewhere for most blogging systems to “ping” search engines like google, technorati and yahoo to index your new posts.
