I decided to finally get around to check out ‘Posterous’, I have been pleasantly surprised. For those who are unaware; Posterous is an online blogging platform, much like WordPress.com or Blogger, but with some very distinct differences.
Posterous has taken the blogging concept and incorporated the use of email as its primary method of posting. You can still use a web interface, but why? The other aspect that this Free Service has added is the concept of AutoPosting. AutoPosting is the ability that when you post something to Posterous, it will turn around and post your content to your other services; such as: LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
For me, the real power of this is that you can be selective on what service AutoPost posts to. As an example, when you email to:
· email@example.com – Autoposts to all of your services.
· firstname.lastname@example.org – Posts only to your Posterous site.
· Twitter+Facebook@posterous.com – Posts to Posterous, Twitter and FaceBook
If I have peaked your interest about this service, go to http://posterous.com to find out more about their platform. I think we will be seeing their name more and more.
