The new Publicize feature on WordPress.com helps you ping out your blog updates to Twitter and Yahoo and bring your followers back to your blog.
This short tutorial will show you how it works and how to get it set up.
A Support page with more information is available here.

I just discovered this resource and I have already found some helpful WordPress tutorials and information that we can use to assist our WordPress clients. Publicize is just what the doctor ordered for helping our NFP organizations get the word out about their work and achievements. Much appreciated.
Thanks! If you have any suggestions for future video tutorials, please let us know using our contact form.
I have updated my wordpress to the newest version; however, the dashboard button is not the same as seen in the video above. All the button does is open a page of information and things about the blog, but nowhere can I find the publicize are. Any help?
The Publicize feature is only available for WordPress.com-hosted blogs. For similar features, take a spin through the plugin directory and you should be able to find some solutions to help do the same things.
I’m not much of a blogger, but I heard it’s a real cool online social activity. So I want in on the action. I’m looking for a good blogging software to get started and want to know how effective WordPress is?

I am glad I am not the only one who still has questions. Lin
I really enjoyed that, I hope people take to my blog well, TYVM, L8R!
your video tutorial is very good, thank
very helpful. thank you
you have my thanks too !
Are there any plans on making this available as a plugin for self-hosted WordPress users?
Most of the ‘similar functionality’ plugins in the repo use 10+ rows in options table, offer to add sponsored message to every fifth tweet, etc.
I agree Kaspars this would be a very good little plugin for self hosted WordPress. I wonder if it is going to be available soon?
This is good video,, nice..
thanks for sharing..

that jazz music behind these videos is distracting

I just signed up with WordPress.com.yesterday. I’m interested to be an active member. But I really can’t totally grasp how WordPress works.
Hello and welcome to WordPress.com!
To get started, a great place to begin is the Introduction posted at http://en.support.wordpress.com/introduction/.
Will this feature be available as a plugin for both WP and/or WPMU?
I was wondering the same thing; is this a planned addition to the downloadable WP? Either as a plugin or a feature in a future version?
It is, but we have no ETA at this time.
I use wordpress 2.7 version. but didn’t understand how to use it. should I use some usefull plugins? thanks for the great video
Publicize for self-hosted WP would be great. Plus, WP would benefit from the increased use of the wp.me shortener.
@Sam Thomas: this is ONLY available for people using WordPress.COM – not self-hosted WP installs.
thank you for wordpress
