NetworkedBlogs: A Great Way to Share Your Blog Inside Facebook

networkedblogs2 In a special series on ways to use new tools to share and distribute content on Facebook, Inside Facebook recently wrote about how to import your blog into Facebook.

For all of you that have already taken this step, it has likely been a great step in sharing and marketing your blog, especially among your extended network within the Facebook community.

If the “Import Your Blog” utility on Facebook has been helpful but not quite robust enough, a new Facebook app called NetworkedBlogs might be the solution for you. Describing itself as a “community of bloggers and blog lovers,” NetworkedBlogs offers Facebook users a more fully-featured way to follow and share blogs, all from within Facebook.

Of course, NetworkedBlogs takes advantage of the power of the social graph — when your friends add the NetworkedBlogs application, you not only get to see what they’re writing and reading, but you get to share with them in kind. Some useful features of the app include:

  • The ability to choose from a list of popular blogs or add your own (the basic feature that Facebook’s blog importer also offers).
  • Real-time news feed and news wall features that display the most recent posts from the blogs that you’re following.
  • The ability to view the highest voted posts across all blogs, including the upvoting offered by popular news aggregators like Digg and Reddit.
  • A “profile” separate from your Facebook profile, that allows you to add a personal touch when marketing your blogs to the growing numbers of NetworkedBlogs users.

By offering this valuable utility to bloggers, NetworkedBlogs is gaining traction within Facebook.  It now has almost 500,000 monthly active users.

    Hi

    I agreed that NetworkedBlogs looks like a good app for Profile. However, I don’t think it works on the new Pages.

    If you have the new Pages, have a look at RSS-Connect app:

    Sahana, thanks for the nice review.

    @Paul, NetworkedBlogs will support the new Pages in about a week. We’re working hard on it.

    Congrats Waleed! Its amazing how you have built such a clean and useful app and scaled it organically.

    Just wanted to post an update that NetworkedBlogs now supports the Facebook Pages, and we updated our system to utilize the recent home page design so that your blog posts are guaranteed to be distributed to the streams of all your friends and Page fans.

    The absolute worst. If I had to give it no stars, that’s what it would get. I’ve never seen such garbage in my life. They are very unreliable. It’s the SAME thing. EVERY DAY!! I made a post at 3:21 PM and it’s now 4:05 PM. Where’s the post? It’s so unbelievable how unreliable they are. They don’t deserve to be on Appbistro Verified Developers because they are so bad. The worst program I’ve ever used in my life. Hands down.
