Many sites post content to multiple social networks to get more exposure.

If a single content post needs to be done separately for each social network site, that takes a lot of time for the person posting the content to all the social networks.

This package provides a more automated solution that can take much less time for the person doing the work to post on social networks.

It requires sending a single email message with the content to post to the cloud email service. Then that service can process the content and distribute it to different social networks.
