WordPress already offered a Follow button for the toolbar and directly on WordPress-hosted blogs, but now it lets you encourage followers by placing a Follow button anywhere.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Once in place, users that click the button automatically follow the page that it’s linked to, providing they’re already logged into their WordPress.com account – if not, they’ll be prompted to do that first.
In a blog post, the company also said that it would work directly with sites like About.me:
“Since the Follow Button works for both WordPress.com and Jetpack-enabled blogs, it’s a quick and simple way to expand your audience. WordPress bloggers can display their three latest posts, along with the Follow Button, right on their About.me page, too.”
