Facebook to Shut Off Automatic Feed Syndication in Notes App
Upon logging at my Facebook yesterday, I saw this notes telling users that staring November 22, 2011, automatic content from website or blogs feeds through notes will no longer be available. However blog owners are encouraged to do manual posting of their links to their wall.
User Engagement Through Automatic Submission?
Based on experience automatic submission has low friends engagement. We can see likes or thumbs up but rarely we can see comments on those kind of post in the wall. I’m just doing automatic submission to let my friends know about my new post and also to increase links to my blog. That might be a nofollow links, but links is still a link. Who knows one of this days, Google will just alter their algorithm and includes social media links to their algorithm. There are more engagement when emotions can be seen in the wall post.
Third-party syndication app providers, like NetworkedBlogs, Hootsuite and Tweetdeck remains as options for syndicating content automatically to Facebook.
Do you like seeing your friends wall with lots of automatic feed contents? what about the fan page? or the Group Page?
