Getting WordPress updates onto Facebook?

  1. I think this is what you all have been looking for. Got these instructions from a friend and they work beautifully. If only Facebook was a little more intuitive! Follow everything below, except substitute your blog's url for http://desperatemothers.wordpress.com. You still need the /feed/ part.

    here's how I automate pulling content from my blog:
    1) in Facebook, click on your name in the upper-right corner of the page (just before settings)
    2) click on 'settings' (on the right side of the page under the 'share' button
    3) click on 'blog/rss'' and enter the RSS URL from your blog
    ( http://desperatemothers.wordpress.com/feed/ )

    when you post, the stories will get imported to your wall. It doesn't happen immediately, but fairly soon after you post.

    Good luck!

  2. desperatemothers: not this doesn't solve the issue. Yes, it does provide auto updates of your blog, which is great, but the moment you click the link title link so that you can read more, it doesn't take you to the blog. Rather, when you sign up your blog via facebook's rss feed option, it imports your blog as a note on your facebook account. The problem with that is, it causes facebook users to leave their comments on the note page and any stats for blog hits do not happen. If this rss feed option didn't import the blog into facebook's notes and it when a user click the blog's title, they were directed to the blogs website, then this would be a terrific solution. Alas, I will just continue to hit the "share on facebook" button I placed in my toolbar.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. ugh, sorry for the typos... there doesn't seem to be an edit option...

  4. It's not automatic, but I use digg.com to publish my blog on facebook. It links to digg.com which in turn links to my blog. It's a bit complicated but that way i can make people to get to my blog, which is good. and also, i can select which post i want to share since i don't always write a quality post. ;)

  5. yontory: care to post the directions on how to get your blog to auto list with digg.com and in turn, auto list from digg.com to your facebook page?

    Thanks!

  6. thanks - that works great.

  7. Uh sorry for the late reply asand08:
    If you haven't know already. here's how:

    - I don't have digg plugin in my wordpress, so i need to do it the manual way, which is submitting my own article to digg, with my digg account.

    In my digg account setting (or share setting), i have configured it to automatically send tweets and facebook msg for everyone. so whenever i submit article, it will automatoically be published in my facebook and twitter.

    well, that's all. i guess.

  8. Where is the 'Share on Facebook' icon that one drags to the bookmark bar? I did that on my desktop but when I went to find it again for use on a new laptop, I couldn't find it. Thanks

  9. Never mind. I finally found it:
    http://www.facebook.com/share_options.php

  10. Getsocial has a share to face book button here is the tutorials I made for Getsocial [Written Tutorial]/[Video Tutorial]
