Sorry I missed Westport, was just too jet-lagged after coming back from USA.
Anyway, getting back into January's workload, I'd want to learn how to automatically post onto social media whenever new content is created on a D7 site. So, for example, a new Blog entry is created on the Drupal site, then a teaser for that entry would be posted on the appropraite Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
Haven't done this before, so am wondering how other people are doing it? Had a look at some of the social-media-specific integrations like Drupal for Facebook etc, but didn't find something more general.
Looks like one option is to create an RSS feed with views, then use a social media management tool like HootSuite (http://hootsuite.com) to take that feed and use it to generate posts on Facebook wall, tweets, etc. However I've just tried that and HootSuite isn't working right*
so thought I would see if other people have used other tools or approaches?
*What I did: 1) Ran my RSS feed through a checker to be sure it was ok
2) Added my RSS feed to HootSuite, with setting to do it hourly.
3) Added new content to Drupal site so that RSS feed would have "fresh" content
4) Waited over an hour (there's no way I could see to force HootSuite to immediately pull a feed)
