Crossposting feature (e.g. Dreamwidth)

Crossposting feature (e.g. Dreamwidth)

Short, concise description of the idea
It should be possible to crosspost from the original LJ entry to other services like Dreamwidth etc.

Full description of the idea
Several of my friends wandered off to Dreamwidth, so to stay in contact with them I opened a DW account as well. There is a crossposting feature on DW that enables me to crosspost to LJ, but that means I always have to go to the DW page to post.
However, I'd like to keep my HQ here, at LJ, so please add a crossposting feature, so users can still write entries here, while these entries are also being posted in other places at the same time if people choose to do so (Twitter, Facebook etc. could be other sites to include in a crossposting feature).

An ordered list of benefits
  • - people who don't want to move to other sites could remain here 100% while still being able to stay in contact with their friends easily.
    - LJ could be one of the first sites to break down the walls between different services which would make it attractive to lots of social networking fans.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • - Including a wide range of other sites in this service might be complicated on a technical level.
    - I'm not sure about the legal side, but as long as there is no intrusion where other services are concerned there shouldn't be a problem. If there is some sort of "intrusion" it may help to ask the other services if it's okay for them. After all, they may like the additional publicity too.
