Post Your Facebook Status to Twitter

Thanks to this blog post, I was able to figure out how to add my Facebook status automatically into Twitter? Why is this useful? Because I update my Facebook status conveniently from my cell phone without going to a browser, using Facebook mobile.

The only part that took a bit of figuring out (because I had changed my privacy settings) was where could I find my mini-feed:
http://www.facebook.com/minifeed.php?status&id=83500262
(replace the number after ID for your profile ID number)

The RSS feed for that page should look like this:
http://www.facebook.com/feeds/status.php?id=83500262&viewer=83500262&key=3947f7aa3a&format=rss20

You can either use that RSS feed directly in Twitterfeed to automatically push your Facebook updates into Twitter, or clone this Yahoo! Pipe (which I in turn I learned about here) using the RSS feed URL from above, so you don’t have to show on Twitter:
“Manny is in Boston” but rather the more elegant Twitter post “is in Boston. (from Facebook status)”.

Hope this helps!

New Look, New RSS to Posts by Panas

I decided to change the look of the blog once more. This time, I decided to go clean and customize one of Blogger’s own templates.

It will be a few days until things are “back to normal”, but two of the new things I added to the sidebar are a new RSS feed with the 5 most recent feeds poss by panas and a direct feed pulling from my most recent Amazon.com reviews.

The Amazon feed is provided by Amazon.com directly, but the one for the panas was put together (following the inspiration provided by Rafa) using Yahoo! Pipes.

In case you want it, here’s the pipe and here’s the RSS feed itself (Blogger only pulls the 5 most recent posts)
