about Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin

Hope there are some of you that will respond to this post.

As you know Word Press suggest automatically linking posts to Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. I have done all this.

However, I posted a question on the Word Press forum that says this is NOT a good idea.That it only encourages “spam” followers. That one should post “original” material to these other social media sites.

What has been your experience with this? I would really appreciate any feedback you can give.
