    I recently switched over from wordpress.com to my own hosted blog.I am very disappointed to see that "publicize" is not a feature. I have researched the different options but am feeling quite overwhelmed with all the info out there. What is the best way to share on FB and Twitter? Which is the plugin thats the closest to the publicize feature. Keep in mind I am a real amateur. I am attempted to just copy and paste but would love to make my life easier. Any advice is appreciated;-)

    Alex King just put his Social plugin into Beta, I'd give that a shot.

    Thanks for your response. I will check it out, although I was hoping for something that wordpress already offers. I am not sure how it all works downloading something on to my pc and then using it by proxy.....

    WordPress doesn't have social-network functionality out of the box. The "Publicize" feature on wordpress.com comes from a Plugin that provides the functionality. So, to get the same functionality on a self-hosted WordPress install, you'll need to use a Plugin, as well.

    Publicize is an option in the Jetpack plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/
