Please follow our instructions on adding your store RSS feed to Facebook. This is another great way to advertise your Offeritem.com store due to Facebook’s huge following. If you don’t have a Facebook fan page, I strongly recommend creating one at http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php.
We actually had to reduce the size of our feeds in order to accommodate Facebook’s RSS import feature. Right now our settings are set to 12 newly listed items per RSS feed. In the past our feeds contained 50 newly listed items. This may not be a bad thing because other sites may have similar limitations. So far Facebook was the only site that we ran into with such limitations (we setup automatic feeds on Squidoo without complications).
I also checked out a few RSS feed apps in the Facebook app directory and I wasn’t too impressed with any of them. To make things worst, many of the apps require you to pay for certain features and they seemed very difficult to debug – I tried one of the apps and I couldn’t get my feed imported, I assume this was again due to size limitations.
This Facebook RSS feature also works for blogs similar to this one (WordPress).
