Facebook Pages now publishable outside the wall
I’ve noted before that Facebook Pages (not personal profiles) have some growing up to do. One of the features I’ve been waiting for is to have Facebook Page updates published somewhere OUTSIDE Facebook. Pages are public and Google can find them, but there was no way to have updates on the Page republished or cross-posted somewhere else.
Until now. Facebook released a Twitter Exporter Tool that allows Page updates to go out to Twitter. Finally a step in the right (or outside the wall) direction!
It’s not the cleanest way to republish your Facebook Page content because most people will just add it to an existing Twitter account, but it works.
What I’ve done is added it to a Twitter account I’ve been sitting on: @orangejackllc for now to see how it works out. If you REALLY wanted to clean this up, create a new Twitter account just for your Facebook Page, then use that Twitter Account’s RSS feed and voila! You have a Facebook Page RSS feed held under 140 characters.
See? I told you it’s not the cleanest solution. That would be for Facebook to add RSS to the Pages, but this works.
