In my last article, Supercharge Your Website with Jetpack: Part One of Three, I wrote about the basics of Jetpack: what it is, a rundown of the applications included, how to install, and how to connect it to your WordPress.com account to enable all of the awesome features. In this second post of this series, I will cover the rich social media features that are included as a part of Jetpack and how to get the most out of them.
Using the built-in social features of Jetpack, any blog owner can easily and effortlessly get their message out to the broadest audience possible. Blog Subscriptions allow users to subscribe to your content and receive notifications of new posts via email updates. Publicize automatically publishes your content to popular social media networks. Sharing allows visitors to help to promote your content with a click of a button, and Extra Sidebar Widgets give you the tools necessary to display your Twitter Feed, an image, or an RSS link in your sidebar.
