Quick and Easy Ways to Add a Facebook Feed to Your Website

  1. Postano allows you to add a Facebook feed that auto-updates. You just add your Facebook address and they give you an embeddable code which you copy and paste into your site. You can also add Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and RSS feeds to the “iframe”, so it’s all aggregated in the same page allowing users to interact with and follow all of your social channels. This is a premium app so it’s great for income producing sites, and since it’s not free you know that not everyone is going to be using it. There is a free trial, though.
  2. Facebook provides a plug-in that allows you to add a comments thread to any page and allows FB users that are logged in to comment. The cool thing about this is that commenters can opt to have their comments published to their Facebook page which can increase interactions and drive traffic back to your page.
  3. This video tutorial describes how to take a bit of code (provided by David Taylor Webmedia) to which you simply add your Facebook page address. This gives you an iframe with a live feed of your Facebook page. Simple and effective! They also have a lot of other helpful videos about internet marketing.

How can a brand successfully use social media to engage its audience? The question remains elusive to those marketers who are still stuck in the old ways of thinking; pushing the message out there, interrupting, fighting for the attention of their target audience. Using social networks to attract potential customers is what social media for business is all about. But this is easier said than done; social networks are about connection between people. How can a brand connect on a personal level? It seems that successful brand campaigns on social networks have to be creative and innovative, and they have to connect people. Brands that have been successful at this include Old Spice and Sharpie, as well as many other smaller, less well known businesses.
