With blog auto-publishing, you can automatically publish social posts when new blog posts are published. These social posts are published 15 minutes after your new blog post is published.

All social posts include the blog post title, link, and featured image. Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) posts also include the blog post's meta description.

Blog auto-publish limitations

  • Blog auto-publishing can only be turned on for shared social accounts.
  • Once turned on, blog auto-publishing cannot be turned off if a social account is no longer set to shared. 
  • Unpublishing and republishing a blog post will not re-publish social posts to your social accounts.
  • Due to Instagram limitations, blog auto-publishing is not available for Instagram accounts.
  • Due to Facebook's content policies, social sharing features, including blog auto-publish, cannot be turned on for personal Facebook accounts. 
  • You can only turn on blog auto-publishing for one X (formerly Twitter) account per blog. For example, if you have two X (formerly Twitter) accounts connected in your HubSpot account, you cannot set them both up to auto-publish for the same blog.
  • To turn on blog auto-publish for an X (formerly Twitter) account, you need to select Report on posts published from all sources when connecting the account to HubSpot.
