Automating Facebook

Every one of your blog posts can automatically be imported into your profile — easily. In Facebook:

  • Click on “Notes” on your left-hand Applications navigation.
  • On the right-hand nav, click on “Import a blog” under Notes Settings
  • Enter your blog URL, check off box, and click “Start Importing”
  • Verify your RSS feed is appearing correctly, and “Confirm Import”

Import Blog to Facebook

Ta-da! Your blog posts are now automatically being imported into Facebook.

Subscribe to Friend Updates via RSS

Subscribe to Freinds\' Status Feed

Find what your friends are doing by getting their status updates delivered to you via RSS.

On facebook.com/friends, click on “Friends’ Status Feed” in the right-hand column.

Subscribe to the feed in your favorite RSS reader (I recommend Firefox’s Live Bookmarks, since there isn’t anything more to read than the one-line status).

Sync Your Twitter and Status

Why update your Facebook status if you’re using Twitter to do essentially the same thing?

TwitterSync automatically posts your latest Tweets as your status. You can add a verb like “tweets,” or “is twittering,” “is,” etc. before the update, or leave it completely blank.

The official Twitter app also syncs your status and tweets, but (until recently) automatically adds “is twittering” before posting your status.

Add Flickr, Digg, del.icio.us to your News Feed

Don’t waste your time uploading your pictures, bookmarks and more to a specific service and to Facebook — automatically import them into your Mini-Feed.

On your profile page, under the Mini-Feed header, click “Import.” This will allow you to import items from

  • del.icio.us
  • Digg
  • Flickr
  • Picasa
  • Yelp

Import Stories
