If you are a wordpress.com blogger looking for a way update your Facebook fan page automatically whenever you publish a blog entry there are several methods you can use. Here are five of them, and if I have not included an method that you use then please comment and provide details.
UPDATE: August08, 2011 Now Publicize to Facebook Pages
UPDATE: July14, 2011 Please read > Facebook like box widget for WordPress.com as it contains updated information.
UPDATE: February 27th, 2010 – WordPress.com has an app. called Publicize for posting to Twitter, Facebook and Yahoo. The feature can be enabled from your Dashboard → My Blogs admin page. Once you enable it, you’ll be directed through an authorization procedure to confirm that you want to connect your WordPress.com blog and your Twitter, Facebook or Yahoo account. Please see here for Publicize.
Log into Facebook and go to your fan page. Then manually add a snippet from and a link to your latest post.
The Facebook application RSS Graffiti automatically posts snippets of your WP posts to your wall, and friends have to click the link and go to your blog to view the whole article.
RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify.
You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.
Thank you for mentioning RSS Graffiti on your list. It’s been just 4 months since its launch and we are aways glad to discover so many people adopting it and mentioning it.
Since I am here allow me to add that RSS Graffiti will embed video and audio in the stories posted on the Facebook stream if any are available in your feeds as media enclosures.
RSS Graffiti is also -possibly- the only application that can write from RSS feeds to the news stream (wall) of Facebook Groups which I think is important for the administrators of the recently upgraded Facebook Groups.
Thanks again for the mention!
We’ll be glad to hear your (and your reader’s) feedback.
Use http://getsociallive.com social bookmarks on your posts and the update will be automatic every time you publish.
In Facebook, Add Networkblogs application. Then add your feed to it on your profile. When you publish on your WordPress.com blog, it will update in the stream on Facebook and your wall.
