Get Facebook Fans Page News Feed / RSS Feed / Atom Feed

 Wonder why it is so tricky to just get an URL to display RSS feed / Atom feed from a fans page. Anyway, here is a very simple 2 steps trick to get the URL for your fans page news feed update to RSS Feed  or Atom Feed so that you can export to your blog or app.

 

Step 1 – Get Fans Page Id

Open any picture / image in the fans page. Then extract the fans page id from the URL. the example of image shown below, the fans page id is 378156838895039

 

Step 2 –  Complete The URL

The  Atom Feed and  RSS Feed URL format are as follow:

 

If I use the facebook Id I get on the step one, the Atom Feed and RSS feed URL will be as follow:

 

Short and simple, but I just wonder why Facebook don’t have this button to save all the trouble.

    Cheers !
