Author Attribution in Social Media

    We are a multi-author blog. I am the administrator, but I have the blog settings/profile referencing our group email and using our blog title as the "Name."

    For some reason, though, all social media posts (i.e. Twitter) attribute each post to my name. Searching through all of the profile/setting/My Blog options, I don't see my name anywhere.

    Can anyone help me figure out what is going on here?

    I want each post to be by the Blog Name (not by specific authors). We post a "By Jane Doe" in each post, which references the authors there.

    Help, please! Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is earlycareerecologists.wordpress.com.

    I am having a similar issue- I have two different twitter accounts. They both have different email addresses and usernames. The one which my wordpress blog posts updates come on (which is private) is somehow coming up with my actual name and the other twitter account, which I don't want to be identified with. Not sure what to do. Any help would be amazing. (Not sure how to make my own forum post so I jumped on this thread hoping it would help)

  3. Publicize works per blog and per author. See here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#additional-information
    For multi-author blogs, each user that wants to connect to a Publicize service will need to do so separately as well.

    If you want to publish each post into every author's Facebook wall, you might consider another solution, such as RSS Graffiti (which would be based on the entire blog's RSS feed). RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.
