Trying to find a reliable way to update my friends on the social networks has been a rough road. PING.FM was great for a while. There was even an easy to use plugin for use in my WordPress blog, but then my PING.FM account just stopped working. Being that it is a free service, customer support was dismal.
I thought HELLOTXT may be the answer to my social networking blues. One of the creators of the plugin for PING.FM had created one to work through HELLOTXT so I thought all may be good. HELLOTXT fell to the exact same fate as PING.FM and again I was stuck without a working service.
I guess what they say is true. You get what you pay for. So a few months back I decided to pay the monthly fee and go with OnlyWire. The service works great and they have actual customer support. The plugin for WordPress is simple and supported also.
If you are seeing this post on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, you see how it works. The only problem I ran into was the time it would take to set up all the accounts they supported, but I didn’t have. Found a great solution for that! Went to Fiverr and found someone that set up all my accounts for $5. That is a deal that can’t be beat and now everything is running smooth.
Hope this helps someone else going through all the trouble I did trying to get this all set up.
