How To Import A Blog Into A Facebook Fan Page

Social media is where it’s at, and it’s a great source for additional traffic to your blog or website. We publish our content on Twitter (using Twitterfeed), on MySpace (through the Twitter integration native to MySpace), and on Facebook (through NetworkedBlogs).

And while NetworkedBlogs is great, the end-user has to install the NB app in order to follow us. I don’t know about you, but I RARELY install Facebook apps..

So we decided it was time to create a seperate Facebook Fan Page for the blog in question. Then came the question of how to import our blog posts into the Facebook page (rather than into my personal profile).

This ended up being more complicated than it should have been! For whatever reason, everything on Facebook seems to be more difficult than it should be..

In any event, I finally figured it out, and wanted to share the steps you need to take to accomplish this:

  • Go to your Fan page.
  • Click on Notes tab near top.
  • Click on the “Write A New Note” button on upper right.
  • Then click on the Notes icon that appears in the row of icons in upper right.
  • Then you will see an option on the right that says “you are not importing notes from an external blog”
  • Click that link, and post your blog feed URL.

That should do it. Facebook first told me my feed was empty, but I tried it again and it finally worked, importing my past few posts onto my page’s wall.

Hope this helps!
