How To Drip Feed Your Blog Content To Your Facebook Fan Page

I wanted to share with you guys something I learned recently. I wanted to drip feed my blog content to my FaceBook Fan page without having to do it manually. So I did a search on the web and didn’t find much but bits and pieces. It reminded me of when I tried to figure out how to add an Aweber opt-in form to my FaceBook Fan Page. So I took the bits and pieces that I found and put them together to create this tutorial for you.

This tutorial is very similar to the recent post I did where I showed you how to create a FaceBook Fan Page. Below I will show you step by step how to auto-magically drip feed your blog content into your FaceBook Fan Page. So everytime you create a blog post your FaceBook Fan Page will be updated with the latest content from your blog. Really cool! So let’s get started!

1. Go to your FaceBook Fan Page and find the notes tab at the top of the navigation menu.
If you don’t see it there, it maybe hidden in the (+) menu button.

2. Next look for the tab that says “write a new note” and click on it.facebook-fan-page-tutorial-2

3. On the top right where it says “edit” look for the notes icon button and select it.

6. Preview your imported blog content before pressing the confirm button on the upper right side.

7. You will now see your most recent blog post content imported to your FaceBook Fan Page.

8. As you make posts to your blog it will auto-magically drip to your Fan Page Wall.

    Cool demo. I like the photos. I’m just wondering though, is it supposed to be automatic for blog posts to show up on my fan page as soon as I post them or does it take a while to replicate? I got the old posts to show up just fine on initial import. Thanks.

  • Samuel on December 27, 2009

    Justin,

    As soon as you do the import your older post will show. Then anytime you create a new blog post it will instantly show up on your FaceBook Fan Page.

    It does work, but apparently it takes a while (about a day) before the posts show up in my notes tab. I guess that’s why it’s a “drip feed”. I figured out how to get the RSS feed up in a box on the left, but do you know how to get the notes section to show up on my wall like it did during the initial import? I reckon most people will go look at the wall, but most never think to check out the notes. At least I don’t. Also, I think that the RSS box doesn’t show much other than that posts were made, so not much for fans to see whether or not it’s worth them looking at any further. Thanks for the big assist.

    This is perfect! I have followed your exact instructions and am now running smoothly. I love all of your tutorials! I did the optin aweber form earlier and it was so smooth.

    You are excellent at writing clear instructions for everyone to follow regardless of their knowledge or experience. With the added screenshots, even new beginners can follow along and not get lost!

    I searched high and low for how to add to my fan page and not my personal profile and couldn’t find anything I could use. Thanks to you, I am operational.

    I have bookmarked your site for checking into as one of my primary sources when looking to do something from now on!

    thank you!
    Melanie

    its not working for my blogger site I think because blogger says won’t work with ftp whatever that means

    One thing I have discovered is that if you post a link on your Fan page it will NOT be a dofollow link. If however, you embed links within your blog post using anchor text, and drip feed it to Facebook, the outgoing links will be dofollow.

    I’ve checked it several times and this is the way it works
