Update Services adds the ‘Update Services’ box to WordPress Multisite.

Multisite automatically removes the update services box from the Settings > Writing page found in WordPress. This plugin adds it back *AND* allows super admins to configure default services across an entire network.

It gives you back the functionality to update different sites when you publish a new post.
