We know that many people get their news primarily through social media. Nowadays many brands, celebrities and public figures break news on their Twitter profiles or Facebook pages and that’s a surefire way for journalists and fans alike to keep track of updates. We’ve always strived to give you access to all the content you want, be it a blog post or a social network update - and today we’re adding to the family of social subscriptions with feeds for Facebook pages.
Facebook is a very dynamic network and updates flow in all the time. This makes it really difficult to stay in touch with some of your preferred sources - no matter how limited your Facebook network is, you are still bound to lose some news in the news feed flow. Of course, you’re able to get notifications for posts by specific pages - but wouldn’t it be easier to get all the posts straight in one place - say… in Inoreader? Starting today, you’re able to do just that.
You can link a Facebook page simply by pasting the URL in the Search or subscribe bar:
If you haven’t linked your Facebook profile to Inoreader, or have done that some time ago, you will see a prompt to connect your account - just click the link and approve the app:
Once you’ve subscribed to the Facebook page feed, you can work with it like with any other feed in Inoreader - add it to your preferred folder, get some rules on the way, add the appropriate tags and so on. This will give you many options to follow information from your favorite Facebook sources.
Based on Facebook’s API, it currently isn’t possible to get feeds for personal profiles or searches - if a chance presents itself in the future, we’ll surely extend the functionality. Facebook page feeds are available to all users, but there are some restrictions:
- Basic users can have one Facebook page feed.
- Plus users can have up to 20 Facebook page feeds.
- Professional users can have up to 60 Facebook page feeds.
