A video tutorial that takes ‘manual’ out of the process

John HaydonI recently spoke with a non-profit client who I’m working with on social web strategies. At the end of our call, she complained “We’ve been so busy recently. I can barely remember to paste our blog posts onto our Facebook Page.”

When I told her that she could automate the feed, she almost jumped through the phone with joy. I promised her that I’d make this video.

If you don’t have a Facebook Page yet, go watch How to create a Facebook Page in less than four minutes. I’ll wait right here.

This tutorial on how to import your blog posts into your Facebook Page covers the following steps:

  • Adding the notes application to your Facebook Page
  • Adding your blog’s RSS feed to the application
  • Confirming and importing your blog posts

  • Cheers John,

    So simple !! btw, what tool did you use to film the guide? would love to know.

    • Chris – I use a screen-capturing tool for Macs called ScreenFlow. It allows me to record from 4 sources at once (eyesight, mic, computer sounds, screen), add additional media (music in this case), edit (zooming, callouts), and publish in any format. Hope that helps!

  • Hello,
