Jetpack is one of the easiest ways to share your site content directly to social media. This month, we’re adding some handy functionality to make it easier to re-share posts to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and LinkedIn.
That’s not all. We’re adding captions and subtitles for VideoPress, and we’re making it easier to purchase and activate Jetpack even if you don’t have a website. Let’s dive in.
Bring the message back
After you’ve published a post, you’ll see the option to re-share the post in the Jetpack sidebar if you have a Jetpack Security or Complete plan, or a legacy Premium or Professional plan. This allows you to easily share your post again to all of your linked social networks, allowing you to reinforce your message.
Maximize Video Engagement
In this release, we added captions and subtitles for VideoPress. This is essential for accessibility and enables you to keep your audience’s attention in environments where they can’t turn on sound. Try our HD, ad-free video solution for free, and add subtitles while you’re at it.
Purchase Jetpack anytime
We created Jetpack licenses, giving you the freedom to purchase a license and use it on any site you want. If you manage multiple sites, you’ll have a much easier time activating and making changes to your subscriptions.
