How to add your blog to Facebook: Add a Blog tab to your Facebook page

Do you want people to access your blog easily from your Facebook page? Perfect! What you need to do is:

Step 1: Add your blog to NetworkedBlogs

Step 2: Optional but useful: Link your blog to your Facebook page and Twitter profile

Step 3 (this post): Add a Blog tab to your Facebook page

 

OK, so Step 3: How to add a Blog tab to your Facebook page:

BTW, the Blog tab can be added to Facebook business pages and not to personal profiles. But this is what we want, right?

1. Log into Facebook with your personal profile. Do not use your business page, as it will not work.

2. Go to the NetworkedBlogs fan page.

3. Click the little wheel icon next to the Message button and click Add App to Page. Follow this image:

4. From the window, select your page (make sure it has the check mark before the page name) and click Add Page Tab. Follow this image:

5. Go to your page and click your newly installed Blog tab. Click Choose Blogs. You may be getting a message to refresh the page, a few times. Refresh and your blog will show up. Make sure the blog is selected and click Save. Follow this image:

Great! Now you added a Blog tab to your Facebook page.

Your turn!

After you completed these steps, post a comment with your Facebook page so I can check out your sparkly Blog tab!

    I added the Blog app to my facebook page, although you actually have to click on the app for my blog to show up. What I want to do is have a post appear on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/reeltransformation whenever I publish a new post. It used to do this and then I changed my URL and I can’t figure out how to do it again. Will it happen now automatically or will I need to do something else?

    I am disappointed. When I tried to add my blog, the application told me “Blog Registeration Currently Unavailable

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Currently we’re not accepting new blog registrations. If you have already registered your blog, you can continue to edit and manage it from the Blogger Dashboad page.”

    Hi Delia! Another question – how do you get the little square ads down the side of your blog? How do you attach them to the files for others to open? I’ve tried other styles but I really like yours. Thanks Susanne

  5. says

    Thanks for the info, this worked great for me! I\’m a busy mom of 2 boys, and I just started my own business making paper flowers. I will definitely be using these tips when applying to my blog as I\’m pretty new to the blogging world. You can share in my journey with me here http://reaghsunshine.blogspot.ca/ I look forward to connecting with other bloggers!

    Hi Delia, thank you so much for this post! For someone who writes a blog, I am not the most tech-savvy, but after reading several articles on how to do this, you made this SO easy and I really appreciate it. And it works! https://www.facebook.com/housenerd Doing this also made me ‘discover’ your blog for the same time and I am so impressed! Love how you write. Looking forward to following and reading a lot more.

      Hi all! Thanks so much for the tips…is there a way I can add my logo to this blog button on Facebook, instead of the standard blue and white that says “Blog”

      Thanks so much!

    Hello Delia,

    Thanks a lot! I am trimming up my page and tweaking out some changes (always eager to add more than only the default items :) .. )

    I added mine and it worked like a charm! Took few minutes to get it done with your instructions! :)

    Thanks again, Delia !!

    Hi, i followed your step to create a blog tab on my facebook page, which is awesome by the way! Thank you very much for sharing. But now I want to remove this tab. Can I ask how can I do it?

  9. says

    I can’t thank you enough for the easy instructions. I’ve been blogging about “things that bring delight (food, craft,travel, flowers)” for 6 years now and I am finally getting around to attaching my blog to my FB fan page. I tell myself that the capability is relatively new and it makes me feel better…
    Again, thanks SO much! All the best, Anne http://www.facebook.com/MomentsOfDelight

    Delia –
    I’m with the small team behind NetworkedBlogs. Thanks for a fantastic tutorial on connected the Facebook tab. It is a question we get a lot! Wanted to point you to our new product, Symphony (symphonytools.com), that we developed for more advanced NetworkedBlogs users. It’s a full suite of tools for social media including even better options for the FB tab.

    Hello!
    Brilliant, simple explanation that worked for me instantly. Thank you very much.
    What I’d like to know now is, how can I delete a blog post from my FB networked blog link?
    This is due to me voting back into my blogger, changing the title of a post three times and now those three titles are showing on my FB blog link, but with broken links to an empty page. Looks silly! Any advice gratefully received as how I can remove these from the networked blog link on my FB page.
    Lovin your blog!
    Jules

    You are extremely amazing, I been trying to figure out this for days! Thank you so much…Your instructions were nice, short and simple.

  14. says

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I absolutely love this! Not only having my blog accessible from my FB page (it was thru another service, but suddenly stopped working), but I also am happy to be a part of Networked Blogs, exploring and able to follow blogs of interest. I got a little scare when I clicked on format and it said something about billing, but later I was able to confirm I have a free account. Since you did not mention cost, I assume that the billing for FB is for other features.

    Hey, thanks for this! I was looking for good tab ideas, so I could add some custom tabs and more things to promote. I was hoping to have a way to either link (again) to the blog or show off posts. My posts look better on site than with the feed, but I’m happy to incorporate the NetworkedBlogs app actually. I just added my blog there, but hopefully it will work well.

    Here’s my FB page. Check out my “sparkly” custom tab images and consider following. :-D Thanks.
    [If I add it here, your WP setup won't let me publish my comment at all! But if I put it in my URL field, I can't use CommentLuv. Please click on my FB pg from my site??? With a cherry on top!]

    By the way, your site is so cute! Checking it out more in a minute! :-)

    Thanks Delia. This was so easy to follow and simple to implement. Really helpful and what’s more it actually works unlike a lot of other suggestions.

  21. says

    THANK YOU! I searched for days to find a tutorial on adding your blog to facebook. All the tutorials I found were out of date, until I found yours!! I’m so happy I finally have my blog linked to the fb page;)
    You are amazing!

  22. says

    Thanks for this great tutorial on how to add your blog to your facebook feed. While I have been using networked blogs to add my content to tab on my site, I never considered using it to post. I still have issues with some autoposted things!!

  23. says

    Thank you so much for this post. I found it on Pinterest and I didnt even know you could add your Blog to your Facebook page. What a helpful tool. Hopefully it increases traffic to my blog as well. Thanks again….www.facebook.com/extremesavingmoms

    Delia! Love your blog. Found this post as a tweet. I was wondering how to do that! I got everything set up only to find out that it is a paid monthly service. However, I am happy to get set up on Networked blogs and that it posts to Facebook and twitter for me!

      Hey Emily, glad that you found this blog and tried the steps!
      If you follow them exactly in order, it may say you need to pay a subscription, but should work free of charge.
      Another friend of mine tried it last month and it worked for her! Maybe try again and let me know?

            Yes, I am registered on networkedblogs. Thought maybe I should do a syndication…so did. That showed up on my facebook wall..but no blog after pressing blog button. So then thought maybe it is waiting for confirmation from 6 friends…so installed a widget instead on my blog. Still no blog after pressing blog button… poor me :)

          • says

            I suggest that you let it sit for a day or so and try again all the steps in this blog post. Just make sure you are logged in with your personal profile when you start (not the business page) in step 1.

            Also check in step 4 that your blog name is selected (has the check mark) otherwise it may not work.

            In step 5, refresh a few times, until the blog appears. A few people mentioned it took a bit for the blog to appear so it may happen to you.

            It will get sorted out soon, don’t worry :)

            Jill – Check the setting on your RSS feed to make sure it is publishing “full feed content.” May people have it set to partial feed and don’t realize it. It you still have trouble connecting, shoot me an email at matt@ninua.com. *I’m with NetworkedBlogs.
