Post by Email, and Other Jetpack Functionality

We’ve heard some feedback from users that posting from small devices like phones can be problematic. I’ve just completed an instruction sheet for activating Jetpack to allow users to leverage the Post by Email functionality to use the email app on their phone, which may provide a better editing experience. The initial steps in this tutorial would also allow users to enable other items like the Publicize settings, that allow auto-posting to social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Currently only staff are able to access this functionality because we don’t have a good way to identify student users over the age of 13. A good deal of this functionality can also be achieved using recipes on the ifttt.com website.
