Go further with your online visibility and save yourself some time by syndicating your RSS feed and Facebook fan page. Using Facebook’s built-in Import a Blog/RSS feed feature was unfortunately disappointing. The feature converts your blog post into a note and publishes it on your Wall and is supposed to publish into your fan’s News Feed. However, after the first import, it fails to continue to load into your fan’s News Feed. So I discovered an alternative solution called RSS Graffiti. It works great.
There are several customizable options: “RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify.”
