Lets Set Up a RSS Graffitti for Facebook

So last week I discovered RSS Graffiti on Facebook. I posted on my blog, on Etsy, and on Artfire about this great application. However I heard some very similar stories, "I don't know how to set it up."

So today we will do a walk through on setting up a RSS feed for your fanpage.

Step 1: While signed in to Facebook, go to http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/RSS.Graffiti
Once on RSS Graffiti' s page choose "Go to Application"


Step 2: Choose your fan page.
Than Choose the "Add new feed here" feature


Step 3: Fill in the feed URL with your store RSS feed address (or your blog feed). Then give the feed a title (my store, my blog, ect). Copy your feed URL into the source URL box. Finally choose the standard for your Port style. It will look something like this.

Step 4: Schedule your feed. Choose the frequency you would like your facebook fan page to update. Be careful not to update to often or your page may become ignored by fans. However if you do not update occasionally your page will be forgotten. So it is best to choose a moderate update schedule. Here is a quick look at how mine is set up. 

Just choose to save your selections and you should be ready to start importing your RSS feeds into your Facebook fan page. I hope this tutorial is helpful to everyone.
