Facebook and wordpress integration

Having read a useful article about integrating your wordpress blog onto your facebook profile I thought I would give it a try. So I followed all the steps of registering a new application on Facebook and entering all the settings, and then… when I went to add the application onto WordPress I discovered it doesn’t work on WordPress.com blogs only .org blogs!

Having trawled the forums on wordpress.com I discovered that I wasn’t the only one to have discovered that I had the “wrong” kind of wordpress blog. Happily though an enlightened forum member showed the way with the following instructions for Facebook users:

1. Under Applications, Choose Notes.
2. On the right hand side of the screen, choose “Import a
blog”.
3. Enter your URL (the full web address) of your blog.

Now when you post on your blog, it will also post on Facebook.
