Use this simple technique to automatically post your blog posts to Facebook without any tweaks.
Obviously you wanted to spread the word out as much as possible when you post to your blog. There are so many channels to get traffic to your blog and one of the channel that’s hard to ignore is your Facebook profile.
If you have quite a lot of friends on Facebook just posting your blog posts to Facebook would help spread the word out. Doing it manually is not efficient and would be time consuming. No worries, Facebook has a built-in mechanism to import your blog posts without you doing any tweaks and plugins etc.
Login to your Facebook account and go to the “Profile” tab. Click on the “Settings” button and Facebook will come up with the sites that it can import automatically. Currently, Flickr, Digg, Picasa, Delicious, Yelp, Google Reader, YouTube, Last.fm, Pandora, Photobucket, Hulu, Kiva and Blog/RSS are supported. I’m sure they’ll expand on this list to accommodate more services.
Click on the service that you want Facebook to import and Facebook will ask you to enter the URL for the service and hit the “Import” button and Facebook will take care of the rest. For Blog/RSS service you should key-in the URL of your RSS Feed.
From now on, whenever there is an update on the corresponding service Facebook will import the update and will add it up to your Facebook Wall. Isn’t that pretty cool? Let us know if you have some other ways of doing it in much simpler way.
