Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Now in beta: AU_WPing 0.7.2

For reasons I can’t explain, the idea of updating social networks via email just never occurred to me. However, once I realized it was possible, I immediately decided to add the  functionality to my WordPress plug-in AU_WPing.

http://www.alchemyunited.com/au-tools/wordpress-plugin-au_wping/

There are a number advantages to such functionality:

—While not sexy (like using APIs), email works. It’s steady, constant and known.

—APIs sometimes block sending IP addresses. For example, Twitter’s API will not accept traffic from some of the servers at Dreamhost.

—Not all APIs are as available as one would expect. For example, AU_WPing was designed to utilize Ping.fm. However, Ping.fm has since severely restricted access to their API and thus handicapping AU_WPing’s usefulness.
