Adding sites to your Posterous profile without autoposting

In Posterous on October 8, 2010 by Arno Tagged: , ,

Posterous lets you connect with other services (like Facebook and Twitter) to your blog for autoposting.

added sites for autoposting on Posterous

The services you add, are also shown on your blog and your profile page (see image on the right). This is cool, because you probably want to point your visitors to other things you do on the web.

In some cases however, you may just want a link to other services but not autopost there.

For instance, say you are using Posterous to share funny and interesting video’s. You would like people to notice and visit your LinkendIn profile, but might not want to autopost everything to the network site.

If so, there is nice little workaround for the settings for autoposting that lets you achieve this:

  1. Go to Manage my account and visit the autopost section
  2. Select the site you want to change the autopost settings for and click on “Make Changes”edit service on Posterous


  3. Select the service you like to change settings for by hovering over and clicking on “Posts by”
  4. Last step, choose “No one”

    Edit Posts by for autoposting on Posterous




All set! This way you can have a whole set of links to everything you do on the internet without autoposting everywhere.
