Over at The Edublogger, Sue Waters offers up a quick tutorial (with screenshots) on how to import your blog posts into your Facebook account.  With a comment I made to Sue, she also discovered it was possible to use Yahoo Pipes and splice multiple RSS feeds together and import that into your Facebook account as well.  Finally, because Facebook is accepting an RSS feed, it seems possible to publish/re-publish just about any RSS feed, including your Delicious bookmarks, a CNN feed or the feed from your Google Calendar.

7 Thoughts on “Importing your blog (or someone else's) into Facebook

  1. I think we will only truly know if it has worked properly when I write posts on both The Edublogger and my personal blog. Yahoo pipes has been known to give me a bit of attitude so I am excited by the fact that hopefully (fingers crossed) it will work well. The point is this was a relatively simple pipe compared to others so it should work.

    Although Facebook according to what I’ve read deliberately restricted it to one blog feed in to prevent people from overwhelming their friends with excessive feed. Which I can understand except that you have a person like me that doesn’t blog that much compared to some others but is blogging in two locations. Any way once again thanks for getting me to look at my problem from the other angle to find the obvious solution.

  2. Thanks, Sue, for jumping over, piping in and letting us know the status of our test. Please let us know if things publish/republish like we’re hoping. 😉

    By the way, Sue, have you heard of Scholar Press and WP Book for Facebook ?

  3. Well the update on the test is that so far the post from The Edublogger has feed into Facebook. I suppose I should be a good blogger and write a post on my personal blog to see what happens next?

    No I haven’t heard of either of those two. What have you heard?

  4. Just thought I would let you know. It is importing the feed from both my blogs into Facebook no problem and I may have stretched the boundaries by adding just one more blog feed to the mix (which it is pulling in well also), I suppose the good news is it is not like I’m a blogger who posts lots of posts per day 🙂

  6. Great blog you got here…keep up the good work.

  7. Thanks, Lorenzo, for dropping by and for the compliment. I hope you’ll stop by and comment again or subscribe to the RSS feed.
