The popularity of Facebook has skyrocketed over the past few years, making it a valuable tool both for friends and families who want to stay in touch and businesses who want to market their products on social media sites. One great way to do either of these things is to set up an RSS feed on Facebook.
Using these steps, you can have your personal blog post automatically to your Facebook news feed, so your friends and family can keep up with what you are doing. You can even post your Twitter updates to your Facebook wall, and even make your Twitter status become your Facebook status.
For businesses, posting the company blog on Facebook can be a great way to keep customers informed. You can even post an RSS feed to a Facebook fan page. Setting up an RSS feed on Facebook can also do wonders for writers who want to promote their writing on the web.
To publish your blog posts to your Facebook profile or fan page automatically you need to add an application to your Facebok account first. There are many RSS applications to auto publish your blog’s content. These apps adds your RSS feeds, monitors for any update and publish it automatically to your Facebook profile and/or fan page so you don’t have to share your blog posts manually to your Facebook friends, every time you update your blog.
RSS Graffiti is one of the apps for this purpose I personally use and recommend to fellow bloggers.
This RSS feed application is simple enough to set up in a few minutes, yet offers enough customization that you can really make your RSS feed appear the way you want it to look.
Some things RSS Graffiti can do:
1) Display your articles with or without the associated images.
2) Append a prefix to your article posts.
3) Display Twitter tweets in a short format.
4) Convert Twitter status updates to Facebook status updates.
