UPDATE: This method no longer works. I will post a new method soon
It can be a complete pain keeping up with every social media website. Facebook, Buzz, Twitter – it’s a miracle if I get any work done at all just trying to keep everything up to date… If you are not diligent, fan pages can start to get out of date very quickly.
Fortunately there are some way to make your life that bit easier. Instead of having to post both to Facebook and your blog, you can set up Facebook to automatically import your blog posts from a rss feed, reducing the number of things to worry about by one.
This is incredibly easy to do, requires no effort or technical knowledge – it only requires adding your blog address to a single form to get it to work. The only challenge is that Facebook have not exactly made it clear how to find this simple setting…
Confusingly, the way you add a blog to a fan page is different from the way you add it to a personal profile. If you wish to add a blog to your personal facebook page, check out this tutorial on ehow.com. If you want to add your blog to a fan page, read on…..
Sign into Facebook with a profile that has admin privileges for the page you want to add your blog to and navigate to the fan page.
Click on the “Edit Page link”
Scroll down to the Notes application and click on the “Edit” link. If the notes application is not there you will have to add it using the more applications link at the bottom of the page.
On the right hand side there will be a link entitled “import a blog”. Click on it.
Enter the url of the rss feed for your blog. For most blogs, this will simply be the address of your blog’s home page. Click the “Start Importing” Button.
If you have entered the correct url for your blog, a preview your blog posts will appear. If you are happy with the import, click “confirm import”.
Now whenever you post on your blog, a new note will be posted on you fan pages wall, meaning that your fan page is kept up to date and relevant.
