Google Reader in Facebook

March 30, 2009 Comments

This has been around for a while, but I only recently started using it. Facebook's built-in importer application can automatically add your Google Reader shared items to your mini feed.

To configure this, open your Profile to display all items you have posted.

Select your Profile at the top of the Facebook website

On the profile page:

  1. Click "Settings" on the bottom right side of the Write Something box
  2. Choose "Google Reader" as the site to import from
  3. Enter the URL to your public "Shared items" page from Google Reader and press import

That's all it takes. Now, when you share an article in Google Reader a post will be made in your mini feed on Facebook with a link to the article.
