The newest news extension on Typo3 is the “News” extension. This extension also referred as tx_news some times is build in the latest Typo3 Extbase and fluid development platform. The older news extension was “tt_news”.
The latest news extension did not ad the functionality to post news items on social media. So we have developed a Typo3 module to post post news items to social media and email them as well to subscribers. News items can be posted to Facebook pages directly from Typo3 backend administration section. The module also allows to post direct content with url to social media.
