How do I connect my blog to my Facebook page?

  1. I would like to connect my blog to my page on Facebook. I have my personal Facebook page, and then created a separate page under that account under my blog's name. I would like to have a Facebook connect button on my blog, to take people to that page, where they can "like" the page and get the latest updates from the blog (which I would prefer to happen automatically, rather than have to manually post). I have searched all over the forums and support, and cannot find anything about how to do that, but it seems that everyone does it. Almost every blog I go on has a Facebook connect button. Am I missing something really obvious?

    The blog I need help with is glutenfreelyfrugal.wordpress.com.

  2. We cannot use Facebook Connect on WordPress.com blogs. If you're trying to connect a WordPress.com blog to Facebook, you can use Publicize and here are the instructions: http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#facebook

    Additional information and links:
    You can post a Facebook badge in your sidebar. http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-badge/

    You can also enable sharing buttons on your posts, pages and index pages.
    Also note the “like” button.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

    You can have Facebook like & share buttons on your posts.

    Alternatively 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. Thank you!!! Very helpful.

  4. You're welcome. The reason we cannot use Facebook Connect is because the code is JavaScript and the software will strip it out to preserve security. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  5. Thanks! But since some days, the number of likes doesn't display on my blog. Here for example: http://lirelabible.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/qu%E2%80%99est-ce-qu%E2%80%99un-elephant/

  6. Using Facebook with WordPress would be awesome!

  7. I did all of the above, but now the problem is:

    My posts are publishing to my personal page, instead of to my blog's fan page. Meanwhile, if anyone clicks on my Facebook fan page button on my blog, it will take them to the fan page, which is sitting there completely empty, because none of my posts are going there. I actually took down the button, because I don't want people going to a blank page. Here's my page:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Glutenfreelyfrugal/239852512710513

    What can I do about this?

  8. Publicize post to your profile page only.

    RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti
    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.

    If the Facebook like button is coming and going then the solution is found here > http://www.techblogx.com/facebook-like-button-not-working-solution.html

  10. OK, I signed up for RSS Graffiti, but there is nowhere to put in my blog URL to connect it. How do I go about that?

  11. I'm sorry but we do not provide support for RSS Graffiti here. Please go here > http://getsatisfaction.com/rssgraffiti

  12. @timethief thanks for your help!
