Review: Social for Mac unifies WordPress blogs with popular social networking sites

Integrate your WordPress blog with social networks such as Facebook and Twitter with Social for Mac.

Social for Mac is a very handy plug-in for a WordPress Web site. It allows users to link WordPress blogs with social media, broadcast blog posts, and aggregate mentions, retweets, and replies, and republish them as WordPress comments. The plug-in performs flawlessly, and seamlessly links user-specified accounts without problems. However, this isn't an app for Mac OS X as its name suggests, but a plug-in for a WordPress Web site.

Social for Mac unzips and installs by uploading the content to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory or by using the plug-in uploader in the user's WordPress admin. panel. The plug-in interface is intuitive, and users may connect Facebook and Twitter accounts by clicking on the appropriate buttons in the main plug-in window. Connected accounts are displayed with Facebook or Twitter icons followed by the users' log-in name. Once linked users may broadcast blog posts, and may specify broadcast appearance preferences in the Broadcast teaser format box. Additionally, under social broadcasting options, users may type Facebook and Twitter posts within the plug-in. Clicking "Publish" posts the message to the user-specified social network. Another important feature of the plug-in is the ability to aggregate posts and responses, integrating them within blog posts. The plug-in interface is intuitive and easy to use, making it a powerful blog and social network integration solution for WordPress users.

While basically having no connection with Mac or Mac OS X, Social for Mac does offer the ideal WordPress and social media integration experience for users wanting to broadcast blog and social media activity, easily.
