How to Import Your Blog Into Facebook

Inside Facebook has recently written about simplifying how you use Facebook with other social media tools in order to make life a little easier. We’ve discussed merging calendaring by syncing Facebook events with Google calendar and simplifying microblogging by syncing Twitter and Facebook status messages.

For all of the bloggers out there, here’s another how-to that will eliminate the need for you to “re-blog” stories on Facebook. If you’re a blogger that isn’t already linking to your stories on Facebook, you might want to think about it. Here are a few simple steps to increase your web presence by leveraging the power of the social graph. Why not?

How to Import Your Blog Into Facebook

1) In the “Applications” menu (in the bottom bar), choose “Notes.”

2) Under “Notes Settings,” click on “Import a blog”

importblog2

3) Type in the URL of your blog and make sure to check the mini-EULA

importblog4

4) At the bottom of the preview, click on “Confirm Import”

importblog51

And that’s it — your blog is now available to all your Facebook friends and family! Whenever you post new articles on your blog, they will automatically appear on your Wall and in your friends’ News Feeds, driving traffic to your site.

Next step: Integrate Facebook Connect on your blog.

Update: Facebook has since changed Notes such that this method may no longer work for importing your blog.

  4. Brad says:

    I echo Ken’s question. I do not necessarily want to import my tweets as status messages and would instead like to have a feed mix of both blog articles and tweets. I was hoping there was a more straightforward solution than using FriendFeed to aggregate your content and then plug that RSS feed into Facebook Notes, but alas my hopes are dashed yet again. Either way, FriendFeed is still a good work around.

  5. Lori says:

    In response to Ken’s question, there is an RSS app that allows multiple blog imports in an easy to use format. I currently use it on an FB page but I think it would work on profile.

    Hope this helps!

  13. DEkart says:

    I’ve developed blogging application for Facebook:

    http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=127423355320

    It allows you to import posts from external blogs and display them at your profile (both profile box and profile tab are supported).

    I think this application may be useful when you’re not satisfied with Notes.

    Fourth, in the notes settings click ‘edit import setting’

  27. Muskie says:

    I’ve been poking around and their were some third party apps that did this, but the idea of importing all my past posts seems weird. What if you have 500? How long does that take? Does it really import every post you ever made, or like subscribing to an RSS feed only the last dozen or do?

    If I update an old post, does the update get reflected in “Notes”? What if I delete an old post?

  28. James Weis says:

    If I edit a blog post after it has imported into FB notes, do the changes also update onto my FB notes page?

    The FB Notes app will not let me edit an imported blog post directly and if I have spelling/grammar changes that I miss when I publish the post, I would like to have those changes reflect in my FB page.

    There’s been a lot of buzz these last few years about ancient secrets and techniques. They’ve been known for hundreds, even thousands of years by the elite. Hidden from the public, they kept this information suppressed so they could control you. It’s no secret that the way you think influences your life in every way. The Law of Attraction is such a basic concept but we need to fully understand it to achieve our full potential. I won’t teach the Law of Attraction for any amount of money. My time is incredibly valuable and I only have time to deal with serious people – those who already understand the basics. Don’t worry, I won’t leave you alone in the dark if you don’t already know all this stuff. When I was new, some very nice people pointed me in the right direction and I want to do the same for others. After all, I do enjoy talking about this and spreading the good stuff around!

  37. Kathy says:

    OK Gina and David Patrick,
    I have embellished David’s steps with a little more detail. I haven’t finished testing but I believe this will work to import a blog to your Page in facebook:

    First create your Page.

    Second add ‘Notes’ as an additional tab alongside WALL, INFO, PHOTOS, BOXES

    Third click on ‘Write a new note’ and add a test note then save draft(this can be deleted later)

    Fourth, go to that note you just created and click Edit to pretend to edit it.

    Fifth, now in the upper right area you will see EDIT followed by various icons..one of these is a notes icon (looks like a piece of paper).

    Sixth: Click on this Edit/NOTES icon in the upper right

    Seventh: Now a box is displayed on the right side of the page: Notes Settings. In this Notes Settings box is an IMPORT A BLOG link. Follow the steps.

    Hope this helps. THANKS David for the pointers

  41. Lilly Anna says:

    Thank you! This is an interesting and easy way to get your blog posts published on your Facebook profile and page (thank you David Patrick for explaining how to implement this on a Facebook page, had me stuck for a while).

    One thing I have noticed though, using the notes to import blog posts to your wall doesn’t provide a ‘direct’ link to your blog but using the Simplaris Blogcast application does. However importing your blog via notes is alot simpler process, in my opinion. I guess you have to weigh up the pros and cons of both.

    I got my blog posts to appear perfectly on my business page under the Notes tab and in a little box on the Wall, but I want the posts to appear full-scale on my Wall. Is there a way to do that? Thanks.

  68. Jeremy says:

    Great tip! Thanks. Just one question: when you initially set up your blog to feed to your Facebook Page’s notes, did you notice that the few most recent posts were also posted to your page’s wall? Did you then notice that subsequent blog posts were fed to the “Notes” section, but *not* to your wall?

    This is what I’ve noticed on a few different pages on which I’ve implemented this “blog to notes” link. New blog posts don’t get pushed to the wall.

    Anyone know why, or how to change this to ensure that new posts get published on your wall?

  87. Tim says:

    Two quick points. Most important one first.

    Importing my blog (wrightresults.com/blog) to my page Notes, works. But it’s confusing as to what (and how much) goes where. The first few lines of the post appear on the page Wall, Notes and Boxes.

    Clicking on the title on the Wall, takes you to Notes and shows a few more lines from the post, but not all. In wee print below, it offers “View Original Post” and that takes you to my blog itself. But one’s gotta be looking for that link!

    The unadorned excerpts from my posts on the Boxes screen have the title hyperlinked and a “Continue reading” link beneath the excerpt. Both take you to the Notes screen…which offers no more reading.

    I’d like anyone to view the excerpt — on the page Wall, Notes, and/or Boxes — and be able to access the entire post easily (read, with one click!).

    Any ideas?

    Second point…the set up for all this would not take my straight blog URL. It demanded (tho’ politely) a feed as part of the address. Is that a change since the original how-to posting here?

    Why does a good thing stop working.

    I am trying to link facebook, twitter and a website together for a daily message, but only doing one posting. So far, I am posting to a blogger blog, feeding it to RSS. Using MailChimp to send an automatic email from RSS feed. Using MailChimp, there is a function to “social share” that you can send to twitter and facebook. (I’m still struggling with getting any posts to twitter). The MailChimp facebook post worked quickly, however, it posted to a profile page. I am trying to get a posting to a fan page. This original facebook post seem to be the answer but not working even though I go through the steps in Notes and it appears to be set up.

  97. Robert McCulloch says:

    Thank you for the information. Well done!

    I had some problems on my side of doing this. Here is what I found…

    Check your privacy settings first. If you have them set to display stuff to only friends, it will not let you import your blog and may mess up other Facebook applications. I set everything to default and not only did my blog import, but all the other problems I have been working to resolve went away!

    Sincerely,

    Robert McCulloch

  98. yannux says:

    Same as for pasty,

    nothing works since few days / weeks.

    I have many pages, each page one rss to import, but now when I want to put rss on new page, it says me that nothing was find at the url, but the feed url is good (works on feedburner, netvibes, google reader).

    And pages where it was working, nothing works from 2 weeks.

    Wow, I had not even thought about importing my blog to my facebook page. Thanks for that tip!

  110. darkrabbit says:

    …and Facebook has disabled the import your blog feature without notice or instructions on how to import using other methods! Hooray!

    Anyone got any links for the various solutions for the various blog types?

  111. Louise says:

    David, thanks so much for the simple instructions re business page & notes…like others I had been going round in circles & couldn’t get the URL right. All sorted :-)

  112. Susan J says:

    THANK YOU! I’ve been searching and searching for how to do this, and now it’s so simple. Not straightforward – no wonder I couldn’t find where to enter the url – but simple once you showed me where to look! Thanks so much!

    Facebook is incredibly delayed (3-4 days) to import my blog and they have removed the manual import feature. Any tips on how to fix this are welcome…

    Hi. Setting up the initial blog import to my FB worked fine, but since then, FB is NOT picking up my more recent posts. Even though FB says that “Facebook will automatically update your notes whenever you write in your blog”, that’s just not happening. I’ve confirmed that my blog URL is valid and still listed as “importing” on my FB. Can you tell me how to make FB go out every day and grab my newest blog posts? Thanks!

  119. Pat D says:

    Was working fine. Then it just stopped importing. I tried to edit the settings. Now I keep getting the message “Import Failed
    We couldn’t find a feed using the URL you provided.”
    I did lower privacy settings but nothing helps

    Too bad I didn’t see this post before I spent the last three hours trying to get my blog to link. I thought it was something I was doing wrong. I guess FB changed something and now this doesn’t work anymore. Bummer

  125. Diana says:

    Elise is right. I’ve messed with this for a hour and there’s just no way to import your blog to Facebook. Maybe they took out that option cause I can’t find it anywhere, and I’ve been all over that site.

  126. Chris says:

    “Import Failed
    We couldn’t find a feed using the URL you provided.”

    Facebook doesn’t accept the URL, RSS or Atom feed. I tried all possible possibilities!

    Very annoying!

    Hi there,
    it is not working with my blog from blogger/ blogspot. First it said, we were not able to import the blog. I assume to many entries?!
    After another shot the systems claims not to find a feed. Which is of course not true. Feed is there. Tried it 3 times.

    Any suggestions?
    thanks
    cougar

  137. SimplyDriven says:

    I am having the same problem. Can’t import my blog. It worked once but then I noticed that changes I made weren’t being updated. So I tried to “stop importing” but that isn’t there. It says I am not importing a blog. So I deleted all the posts and keep trying to import the blog…. unsuccessfully. :(

  138. Netanya says:

    “Notes” no longer looks the way it did over a year ago when you posted this. I can’t find “Notes Settings.” I get Friends’ Notes, Pages’ Notes, My Notes, My Drafts, Notes About Me. If I click on “My Notes”

    If I click on Import Settings all I get is:
    “You can import posts from one external blog so that they appear along with your notes. Facebook will automatically update your notes whenever you write in your blog. Imported blog posts cannot be edited.

    You are currently importing notes from: http://elianamiriam.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default” and then the option to stop importing, but no option to import something else.

    Help!
