The relentless quest for AU_WPing perfection

Call me Mr. Can’t Know Everything but did you know that Facebook fan pages can be updated via email? Yes Virgina, it’s true! Not only that, you can also attach photos at the same time.

In short, I decided not to wait for Ping.fm to reopen their public API . Instead,  I’m nearly done with enhancing my WordPress plug-in AU_WPing (yet again)  so that it will also be able push out updates via email. As long as a given site/service accepts updates via email, AU_WPing will be able to send to them.

While email might seem a bit primitive, it is universal. Ideally, blocked IP addresses, API restrictions, etc. will now be avoided. Nice, right? FWIW, I also discovered that there are sites that will let you tweet via email too.
