Facebook Notes: How to Auto Publish Blogger to Facebook

One of the most common question asked by any Blogger is how to auto publish blogger to Facebook and one easy answer is Facebook notes app. Facebook notes is a useful app which comes by default with every Facebook fan page and Fb profile. In this post, I will be sharing how you can configure Facebook notes to automatically post WordPress post to Facebook and similarly Blogger blog post to Facebook.

Update: Facebook discontinued import posts from website some time back. Scroll to bottom to read updates status about Fb notes blog importing feature.

When you should not use Facebook notes to publish blogger to Facebook:

If you offer complete feed for your blog post, you should not use Facebook notes app to distribute your content on Facebook profile or Fan page. Reason being, when ever you share anything via Facebook notes, Google usually indexes it. Since you offer complete feed which is not working as a duplicate post, sometime because of domain value of Facebook, posts shared via Fb notes app, outrank your original content on your blog. So, I highly suggest you to use partial feed feature to publish your blog post.

In case, if you still want to offer full posts via feed, I suggest you to use RSS Graffiti app, which is one dedicated app to publish your blog posts on your Fb profile and fan page. Infact, after realizing post duplicate issues with Face book notes app, I started using RSS Graffiti app. Anyways, depending upon your choice you can use Fb notes or Graffiti app, but my recommendation would be Graffiti app.

How to configure Facebook notes to Auto publish blog posts on Facebook:

Follow this simple how to guide to set up Fb notes app to auto publish posts using blog feed. Be it, WordPress, Blogger or any other platform, if your CMS offer RSS feed, you can use this app to configure everything.

Login to Facebook and go to your Fb fan page.  Click on edit page at the top right, Click on Apps from left menu and search for Facebook notes app.

Facebook Notes

  • On the next page click on import a blog from right hand side and add your blog feed address and this will start publishing your blog post automatically.



Click on Start Importing and from now on when ever you will update your blog, your post will be automatically publish on Facebook Fan page.

I hope you found this tutorial simple and if you find it useful, don’t forget to share it via tweet or Stumble.


Sadly from Sep 30th 2011, you won’t be able to use Facebook notes to import blog feed on Facebook as added by official announcement here. So right now, best option is RSS graffiti app.

    How do I auto event to facebook ? Is there any tools or apps that does that instead of going into facebook and create it manually?

  2. Robert Butler says

    I have a better idea. Dump Facebook and use Google+. If you have a blog on blogspot (i.e. Google Blogger) then all you have to do is connect your blog to your Google+ page and you will automatically get the chance to post to your Google+ page every time to post.

    Hey – I have the opposite issue, By mistake I put wrong link on the facebook page of another blog. Though I have removed the Links on wall as well as the Tab, I still can’t see anywhere as to how to remove that link from the notes area! because all the posts are still showing if I go to EDIT IMPORT SETTINGS. I want to place a new RSS link and remove these old feeds placed by mistake.

  12. Manimaran says

    Its really good trick. I tried it and working fine. Now I can see my sites feed from my Facebook.

    It seems that using the Notes app to create a tab for blog posts is relatively quick and easy to setup unlike many of the various other apps that promise to do the same thing.

    However I have found that most of my clients aren’t happy with the tab title being ‘Notes’, instead preferring it to say ‘Blog’ for ease of recognition by users. In these cases I’m using Networked Blogs.

    While this is a great approach at updating your page automatically, the only thing that I would like to see is an option to automatically update your page with a link directly to the post. The Notes option will link to your note (which will then link to your blog post). I usually just go in manually and add it in as a link, that way when people click on it from the Wall, it will go straight to my site. Not a bad option though for auto posting!

      I agree with what you are saying Kikolani. Same thing I look for notes application on my facebook profile. That’s why I use networked blog application on my profile. Similarly you can try it for Notes application.
