Hi all! Client wants to automatically add latest blog post to facebook fan page, but I can't seem to make this happen. Is there a widget for this? I tried searching, but nothing jumped out at me. (It would be easier if the widget section had a search function like the modules.)

I did try Hootsuite, but kept getting the dreaded "Feeds must be configured so that posted items report a date/time" error, no matter what format I use for the date/time. Any ideas? Facebook notes used to work, but it was discontinued last year because they wanted to force people to use facebook instead of a separate blog. Is it even possible or has facebook really drawn a line in the sand? (I am rapidly reaching the point that it would be much, much cheaper for the client to pay me to manually link every blog post then to continue trying to come up with an automatic system...)

Thanks!

Create an RSS feed for the data you would like posted to Facebook and use the RSS Graffiti app ( http://apps.facebook.com/rssgraffiti/ ) to post the feed to Facebook. See http://www.facebook.com/pages/Emofacescom/171077902935590 for an example of how the posts look on the Facebook page.
