Making your content look great on these networks generally leads to much higher engagement from readers, with more shares and mentions. It can frequently also lead to more people linking to your blog, which is (of course) very good for SEO purposes.

Ghost(Pro) users can start using this feature immediately. Users running Ghost on their own servers can grab this feature by upgrading to Ghost 0.5.3.
