Facebook connection puzzle

  1. learningfromdogs

    I have a FB account under my own name - Paul Handover. I also have a FB page for my Blog Learning from Dogs. In 2010 I connected my Blog to FB and from then a summary appeared on my Learning from Dogs FB page.

    However, that connection ceased on 15th August 2010, i.e. to my FB Blog page, but switched (without me doing anything) to my FB 'wall' under my own name.

    I really would much prefer to have my daily Blog posts appear under my Blog page on Facebook but can't see any way of doing that.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance,

    Paul H.

    The blog I need help with is learningfromdogs.com.

  2. You can use Networked Blogs http://www.networkedblogs.com/ or RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer.

  3. We also have a new Facebook like box widget for fan pages > Appearance > Widgets > Facebook Like Box

    TT, wow what a beautifully quick response! Big thanks.

    Let me play with that and report back.

  5. Sure and best wishes to you.

    P.S. Publicize is supposed to be for posting to Facebook profile pages.

    OK, noted. I'll play with this tomorrow and copy and paste the thread across to that forum. Ta.

  7. nd copy and paste the thread across to that forum.

    I don't understand you. :(
    What I posted is only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs. It's not for WordPress.ORG installs. The two run on different software.

  8. I have failed to get Posts onto Facebook. Twitter was a breeze.

    Facebook went through the process fine but nothing has happened at the page.

    (I understand about 25 users for a username - thanks to another post here).

    The only reason to share is that some of our users might prefer to follow in FB and I seem to be missing the point on how that best works, works best.

  9. @midwaysurf: For the sake of clarity, when it comes to Facebook, Publicize only works with personal profiles, not fan pages. See the solution provided by timethief above on her first response.

  10. Thank you. I think I get that now. Hello RSS Graffiti.

    I have just signed up to Networked Blogs and will see how that works out.

  12. RSS Graffiti working fine and was straightforward - just a brief blind spot half way through set up. Thanks to all.
