Six Apart, in partnership with Facebook, launched Blog It, a cross-blogging application that lets users broadcast content to multiple blogs.
Six Apart Ltd., already famous for Movable Type and TypePad blogging tools, stated that the purpose of Blog It is that “by bridging the gap between blogging and social networking, we [Six Apart] bring social tools to bloggers all over the Web no matter the publishing platform they use”. For example one benefit is that Facebook users can notify friends and colleagues about new posts. According to Facebook, this morning there were already 234 users whom were using the application and they were satisfied by it.
So far it was already possible to keep multiple blogs in sync, but it was a manual work that required the users to export the data from one platform and import it on the other platforms every time. Blog It solve the problem by making it automatic.
The blogging platforms supported are: TypePad, Blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, Pownce, Tumblr, Twitter, WordPress.com and any WordPress.org Site.
