Social media also have two kind of account which are private account and public account. Some users did not know that data from media social can be intergrate to WordPress website and it is a bit difficult to integrate them into WordPress, as we know that WordPress has different interface and style compared to usual website. Therefore, a plugin and themes were used to increase the usability, responsiveness and beautify the WordPress.

Through this development, our objective was to help user easily update their personal website using WordPress by only updating their social media account without any interaction with coding or source code for those who did not familiar with programming stuff.
