Blubrry Launches Post to Social For Twitter, YouTube and Facebook

Your latest podcast episode is brilliant! Just like the ones before it. Now it’s time to push it out to your fan base and prospective new audiences. Everyone shares their new podcast episode on their social media accounts, right? If not, well, they should. That’s why we’re proud to introduce Post to Social, which enables Blubrry hosting podcasters to easily share their episodes on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook (with more options in the works).

Post to Social for Twitter, YouTube and Facebook makes it easy to publish two-minute podcast clips of episodes or episode teasers to your social media accounts. By automatically publishing your episodes with P2S you’re giving listeners a short sample of your episode with an outro that encourages listeners to check out the full episode.

The new feature provides you the capability to almost instantly post your entire show to Twitter because it enlists a Twitter audio card. And YouTube and Facebook will post the first two minutes of the episode: content creators can record an outro, driving listeners to the full episode on their own site.

Studies show that YouTube and Facebook users are more likely to listen to a short audio segment versus a full audio segment, which is why we’ve created the podcast teasers with your outro. Your outro can be something such as, “Head over to [your podcast location] to hear the rest of this episode, and be sure to subscribe while you’re there.” This is a great way to drive traffic to your website or whatever destination you want your listeners to visit.

Blubrry hosting users can use Post to Social now — instructions are posted on the Blubrry website. If you’re not yet hosting with us, sign up here to get the added benefit of Post to Social for your podcast.

Introducing the Blubrry API

We are proud to announce the availability of the new Blubrry API. The Blubrry API extends our commitment to the community by allowing 3rd party applications and web sites to work with our services.

The new Blubrry API allows developers to build  applications to interface with our media hosting and statistics services. Applications can delete, upload and list media files as well as retrieve media statistics information.

The Blubrry API is a hybrid of the RESTful implementation found at Twitter and WebDAV. More technical details may be found on the Blubrry Help site under the section titled Blubrry API.

Blubrry Development Update

We are pleased to announce some new features and changes to Blubrry!

First, the account settings page has changed. We’ve cleaned up the menu options by only providing a link to the Statisticss system (if you’ve filled out an advertising survey) and a link to the new Publisher system.

We’ve developed a new interface called the Publisher for members to manage their podcast(s) listed on Blubrry.com. Over the coming weeks we will be adding a number of features to the Publisher system for Blubrry members to utilize. I can’t get into the details what these new features include, but if you snoop around in the settings section you will find that we’re now asking for your twitter user name.

We’ve received a lot of complaints about home page coverage. We’ve changed the logic for the most recent podcast section to randomly select 4 episodes that have been created in the past few hours. we’re re-randomizing these 4 episodes every 15 minutes. This should provide fair exposure to all of the podcasts listed on Blubrry. Remember, your post has to include media in order for it to be included in the home page. blog posts will no longer be included on the home page.

Please contact us if you are having any problems or have suggestions how we can improve blubrry.
