At the recent Pressnomics event, WordPress creator and Automattic head honcho Matt Mullenweg suggested that the Jetpack plugin, from, was partly responsible for the success of the WordPress software to date. Matt has also mentioned that Jetpack and its social and mobile-friendly modules would be a key player in helping WordPress move from its current market share of 23% of all websites, up to the 50% mark and beyond. Jetpack: The Saviour of WordPress? I must confess I’ve not been much of a fan of Jetpack and at first I baulked at the idea of Jetpack being the saviour of WordPress. However, in the cold light of day, these comments do make sense. A fresh installation of WordPress probably doesn’t shape up very well against its competitors, in terms of ease of use, features, functionality, and mobile support. With Jetpack being a quick and easy way to add a lot of those missing components to a WordPress website, it’s easy to begin to see how important it is now and could become in the future. So with that in mind, I thought now would be a great time to take another look at Jetpack to see what it has to offer. Hopefully this post will convince some experienced WordPress users
