This post has been outdated for some time. Now to automatically post clippings and other stuff from the web to your Facebook wall, try using a Tumblr account. There is a setting in the Tumblr admin which allows you to link to Facebook and Twitter accounts, and have your postings to Tumblr also auto-post to your FB Wall or Twitter feed. This of course means you will have to post the stuff you want to show up on your FB Wall to Tumblr first, but that’s not so bad, is it?
Use Facebook’s “Notes” to Post Blog Updates
There are a lot of “How To Install an RSS Reader on Your Facebook Wall” instructional posts out there, but most have become irrelevant since Facebook redesigned their look and feel in late 2010. This post is relevant as of
June Mid-August, 2011.
This tutorial also applies to sending your Feedburner feed, Google Reader Shared Items, or most other RSS & Atom feeds to Facebook’s Wall – not just blog posts. FB will warn you that if you’re sending too much stuff to your Wall, they may have a problem with it, including disabling your account. Don’t ask me what “too much” is, they don’t specify.
There are 2 Ways I’ve Done This: Facebook Notes, and Friend Feed App
For the Friend Feed version, I’ll make a tutorial for it if anyone comments a request for it. For the Facebook Notes version of RSS Wall posting, here’s the tutorial:
1.) Go to your Facebook, click on “Profile”.
2.) Click on “Notes.”
3.) Click on “Write a Note.”
4.) Click on “My Notes.”
5.) Click on “Edit import settings” link.
5. UPDATED) Sometime around mid-August 2011, FB changed their template, so here’s how you find the “Edit import settings” link:
Or, if you already have written notes, and they show up under “My Notes,” then click on “View Full Note” link.
