This used to be automatic, and I have no idea why that’s no longer true. “So if you write or put any kind of content on your site, also make sure to add an RSS feed.” https://matthiasott.com/articles/into-the-personal-website-verse
Yes! I too have exactly this problem. Not with my mom, because she doesn’t do Facebook, but still…
Dear Facebook Engineering: Could you fix this algorithm problem please?
In part of my continuing preparation for using Manton Reece’s micro.blog stuff, I went ahead and installed the Webmentions plugin for WordPress on this site.
So, if you use Webmention (whether on a WordPress blog or some other kind of site), you should get notified when I link to your stuff, and I should get notified when you link to my stuff.
This will be so much better than having these discussions on some lame blend of blog comments, Facebook, and Twitter.
