Facebook: how to auto-update your Facebook Page

This is a quick-and-dirty summary of how to automatically update your Facebook Page with entries from a blog.

BACKGROUND: I have several website that are WordPress based, and thus have an RSS feed as part of the setup. Several others are using Feedburner to distribute the feed as well.

There are also some Facebook pages setup as an auxiliary web presence – See the HamSandwichTees Website vs. the Facebook Page for an example.

What I wanted to do was to add an entry to the website, and then have it automatically transfer in to the Facebook Page.

Here’s how:

  • Login to Facebook
  • Click Pages (left menu)
  • Click on the Page you wish to edit
  • Click EDIT PAGE button – top right
  • Click APPS link on left menu
  • Find the NOTES app – click the “Go to App” link
  • Click EDIT IMPORT SETTINGS link on left sidebar.
  • Add in the appropriate RSS link (something like http://hamsandwichtees.com/feed/)
