Post Number Two

We're still testing Twitterfeed and Social RSS in the wake of news, from RSS Graffiti that they're folding.  Sad news indeed. In this post, we're placing the photo in a different place.  Having fun!

Twitterfeed vs. Social RSS

We're doing an experiment at the agency today.  We set up clients' blogs and feed them to their Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. We used to use RSS Graffiti to send posts from the blog to Facebook, but they're going out of business April 1 (hope it's a joke but we think not)

So we've set up our blog's RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feed to post to Facebook via both Social RSS and Twitterfeed.  There are positives and negatives to both (one is more free than the other, one id ad-supported, etc.). What we really are interested in, though, is what the posts look like.

This means that our Facebook Page and Twitter account are about to get a lot of posts (or not) with a lot of looks (or not) and we're going to do it all from the blog. We'll post a lot in different configurations to test the look of both products and let you know what we think. On the Blog.

And it will be sent to the... well, you get it.
