Facebook News Feed

  1. Good evening,
    how can I activate the following functionality:

    Everytime I create a new post in my wordpress.com-blog, I would like the title of the post and a link to it to appear on my Facebook wall / in the newsfeed of my friends, so that they can see that I wrote something new.

    I guess I need to connect my WordPress-Acount to Facebook somehow? Is there a guide explaining how to do this?

    Many thanks!

    If you are seeking alternatives then this post contains 5 alternatives for posting wordpress.com post titles, snippets and links to Facebook fan pages http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/12/importing-wordpress-com-post-snippets-into-a-facebook-fan-page/

  3. I would like my blog updates to be posted to a new Facebook account I created specifically for the blog, but when I go through the steps to allow WordPress to send updates to Facebook, it selects the wrong Facebook account. What do I need to do to change the Facebook account to which WordPress sends the blog updates?

  4. Thank you guys, that went really well. Hadn't expected it to be that straightforward :-).

    We cannot help you until you tell us what method you are using and provide step by step details of exactly what you are doing. Are you using Publicize? http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/

    1. Log into your WordPress.com blog. Go to your blog’s dashboard -> “My Blogs” -> uncheck “Facebook” under “Publicize”.
    (On the “My Blogs” page, make sure you’re looking at the correct row for the blog in question.)

    2. Reload the page and confirm that the Facebook checkbox is unchecked.

    3. Log into your Facebook account. Go to “Account” (upper right corner) -> “Application Settings”. Remove “WordPress.com” by clicking the “X” in its row. (If there is no WordPress.com row, don’t worry, just skip this step).

    4. Log *back* into your WordPress.com blog. Go to your blog’s dashboard -> My Blogs -> *reclick* “Facebook” under “Publicize”.

    5. Wait for the popup appear that asks you to “Authorize connection with Facebook”. Click that button.

    6. You’ll be taken to Facebook and asked to “Allow” several pieces. Allow them all.

    If your are not using Publicize then what method are you using please?
