[Update: As of June 23, 2015 Facebook has deprecated its RSS service. For the time being, there is no available RSS feed from Facebook. If anything changes, I’ll be sure to update this blog post with any new developments.]
Do you find yourself missing updates in your Facebook news feed?
Instead of a limited view, how would you like to organize your news feed and have convenient sharing options for other social networks?
Did you know you can create a Facebook news feed organizer using Feedly to help organize your news feed better.
An unorganized news feed
One of the biggest complaints about using Facebook is that you don’t always see all of the updates from friends or Facebook Pages you like.
How many times have you missed out on a conversation on Facebook because you didn’t see it until a few days later?
This can make using Facebook unreliable not to mention frustrating.
While it isn’t a perfect system, there are steps you can take to organize your news feed.
Organizing Facebook using add interest lists
One of the easiest ways to organize your news feed is to use Facebook add interest lists.
This let’s you create customized lists for friends and pages.
Here is an example of add interest lists on a mobile device.
While I’m a fan of add interest lists because you can combine profiles and pages and share them publicly, you can’t combine them with other websites you read.
This means you have to manage two different sites to see updates.
Tools to help create a Facebook news feed organizer
Some of my favorite tools for organizing my Facebook news feed used to be Google Reader and Hyper Alerts.
Unfortunately, Google Reader shut down and so did Hyper Alerts.
This meant I needed to find alternative tools to organize my news feed better.
I wrote about some alternatives.
Out of these alternatives, one of the tools I find myself using the most is Feedly.
Here are some of the things Feedly does well:
- Create a Facebook news feed organizer
- Pull in content from your favorite websites
- Feedly for iOS and Android
- Make it easy to share with other services like Evernote, Pocket, Hootsuite, Buffer and more
Today I’m going to show you how you can use your Facebook RSS feed to organize your Facebook news feed with Feedly.
