Indiego outputs all blog and status posts in a format which can be previewd in all major social networks. What this means in practise is a nice picture when you post a link to Facebook, Twitter and Google.
Currently, you still need to use a third party service to share your RSS news feed with social networks. I use the free plans on Hootsuite for Facebook & WordPress, and dlvr.it for Twitter, Google+ & Linkedin.
How did you do it?
Well, I read this post called Must-Have Social Meta Tags for Twitter, Google+, Facebook and More. It covers the basics, with examples and with plenty of further reading.
Indiego uses 4 different microformats:
- h-entry open format
- Twitter cards for Twitter
- Facebook Open Graph for Facebook
- schema.org for Google+ et al (including Pinterest)
Just so you know, the microformats are defined in 3 places:
- micro-twitog partial for Twitter cards and Facebook Open Graph, pulled into the
- micro-schema partial for Schema, inserted into the top of the
- h-entry classes scattered in the
Microformat validator tools
To ensure the microformats in your posts validate properly, use these tools:
- Indiewebify.me h-entry validator
- Twitter Card validator
- Facebook Debugger
- Google Structured Data Testing Tool
- Pinterest Rich Pins Validator
