How do I connect my blog's RSS feed to my Facebook company page?

Follow

Facebook no longer allows import of your RSS feed directly to your Notes; however, there are still several applications that assist with Facebook-RSS integration. We recommend Twitterfeed which can be used to integrate RSS with other social media platforms as well.

Create a new account at Twitterfeed

    Matthew - There are several different URLs for your feed that Facebook may be looking for. Here's an article to access your blog's different RSS feeds: http://support.prontomarketing.com/entries/324506-how-can-i-access-my-blog-s-different-rss-feeds

    All of the following URLs will return your RSS feed:

    /feed/

    /blog/feed/

    /feed/rss/

    /blog/feed/rss/

    If this doesn't work you may want to try Twitterfeed. This free service makes it easy to connect your blog to Facebook and Twitter. Here's an article for how to do that: http://support.prontomarketing.com/entries/324520-how-do-i-connect-my-blog-s-rss-feed-to-my-facebook-and-twitter-account

    Let me know if you have any additional issues or questions about this.

    Guys, keep in mind that Facebook changes their menu structure frequently.  Here is how I added my blog feed to Facebook:  clicked on Edit Page, Apps, Goto App (under Notes), Edit Import Settings, entered my URL http://www.alcalaconsulting.com/feed/, and clicked on Start Importing.  Works like a charm.

    Hi all,

    Sorry that this post is out of date. We'll get it updated as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can find another option for setting up your RSS feed in Facebook here:  http://support.prontomarketing.com/entries/324520-how-do-i-connect-my-blog-s-rss-feed-to-my-facebook-and-twitter-account

    Hey everyone,

    These instructions have been updated. Facebook no longer allows import of your RSS feed directly to your Notes; however, there are still several applications that assist with Facebook-RSS integration. We recommend Twitterfeed which can be used to integrate RSS with other social media platforms as well.

    Lastly, I'd like to mention that we offer a social media program in which will design custom Facebook and Twitter pages and post updates on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Google+ will be added to this service in the near future. You can read more about it here:  1+1=3 Social Media.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
