Use social media to share your news

How To Get Your News on Twitter and Facebook

The easiest way to get your news on Twitter or Facebook is to tweet and post your news to Facebook every time you issue a press release. As soon as you receive an email from readMedia that your Press Release is over the wire visit the release online. Each press release has links to popular Social Media sites under the "Share this News" section.
Just click on the icon of the Social Media site you want to post your news to and follow the directions. It's that easy. Of course you'll need an account on each of the social media sites.

Automatically posting your news to Facebook or Twitter

You can also have all of your press releases automatically posted to your Twitter account or Facebook Page. To do so you'll need to sign up for a service called TwitterFeed -- it's simple and easy to use.  Once you've signed up for TwitterFeed you simply give it the URL of your readMedia RSS feed and your login information for Facebook and Twitter and all of your press releases will be automatically posted to both Twitter and Facebook! Need any help setting this up? Just email us and we can help you get started.

Note: You can find the URL to your RSS feed on every page within readMedia. It's on the right hand side under the headline "Publicize your News".
