Using WordPress can be cumbersome and more mayhem than a child throwing tantrums. That is just for the more advance and tweaking that makes it more friendly across the broad spectrum of users and committed bloggers.
Publicize feature from Jetpack makes blogging so much better than just a newspaper. Why you ask? It makes spreading the news a click-away!
Many hassle with blogging, then you copy the link to your preferred social media network. This is the Information Age. Copy-Paste ended in the beginning of the second millennium anno domini.
Using the Title, Custom Message, and
Excerpt, you can customize the way any posts get shared to Facebook. If you don’t change the default custom message, it will post a longer excerpt of your post content.
On the Edit Post screen, in the Publish square it will say something like “Publicize: Facebook: Your Site Name” and then Edit Details and Settings.
Click Edit Details and it will have the post title by default.
If that’s all you want, you don’t have to change anything, just saving the post again will update it so when it posts to Facebook it will only include the title and URL.
So you need to edit the Custom message to something other than the default for it to work the way you want.
Simple as making moisturising your eyes. Blink!
This procedure is universal across all the Connected social accounts associated to the WordPress account.
However, remember to keep the characters within the 140 or below limit, especially for Twitter.
Another note from Jeremy Herve is that “Publicize doesn’t post the entire content to Facebook right, only the first 60 words are pulled.
If you’d like, you can use the Publicize Details box appearing right above the Publish button to set a custom message before to publish your post. That custom message will then be used instead of the first 60 words of your post.”
