Do you have a Facebook page for your business or organization where you would like to have your blog posts automatically posted/imported? Fortunately, there is a simple solution, a Facebook app called RSS Graffiti.

There are a lot of options when using RSS Graffiti, but I’ll walk you through the basic set-up.

First, go to: http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti [you will need to be signed in to Facebook to follow the rest of the instructions]

A pop up window will appear, click "Add to Page" next to the page where you want to use the application.

 

 

If you have other pages, the pop up stays open & the page you added the application to disappears from the list. You can add the application to however many pages you want. When you are finished, click "Close".

 

 

Next, you need to go where you edit your pages. If you're unsure of how to get there, click on "Home" in the very top navigation to go to your Facebook home page. In the left sidebar under your picture, you'll see "Ads and Pages" click on it. If you have more than one page, you will have to select the page you are adding RSS Graffiti to, otherwise it will take you directly to the settings for your FB page.

 

 

This is what the edit/settings option looks like for your FB page. Scroll down until you find RSS Graffiti under the Applications section.

 

 

When you find RSS Graffiti, select "Edit".

 

 

You will be taken to a page that looks like this, select "Click here to authorize and continue"

 

 

Then, click "Click here to allow publishing"

 

 

Another pop up, choose "Allow"

 

 

Now that the permissions are set, it's time to add your feed address. Click on "Add feed"

 

 

Enter your feed address in the "Feed URL" & a title for your feed in "Feed Name" - The default settings will post your blog posts with title, excerpt & photo AND it will check your blog every 30 minutes for new posts. You can scroll down to edit these settings, like to change how often the app checks your blog for new blog posts, however the default settings are perfect for the average user. Once you have added the feed address, feed name and are happy with the settings, click "Save"

 

That’s it! Now, sit back, relax & let RSS Graffiti will do all the work for you!
