Want to get Facebook status updates as a RSS feed? Facebook doesn’t make it easy AT ALL. But all you need to know are your 3 Facebook numbers: facebook_id, your_internal_key and your_friend_key. Once you have these 3 numbers, you can copy and paste them into a custom RSS feed for your status, the status of your friends, all notifications or links from you or your friends. You can then take this custom RSS feed and do things like put into widgets or Hootsuite and feed it into your Twitter account.
Making your custom Facebook RSS feed is easy. Just follow the steps below.
Step #01: Go to your Facebook Notifications Page:
You should now see a RSS feed of all your notifications being displayed in your web browser.
The structure of the link is as follows:
There are 3 numbers in this URL. The number that follows “id” is your Facebook ID number. This number appears twice. The last number is your Facebook Internal Key. Copy these numbers and set them aside.
Step #03: Go to your Facebook Friends Page:
Step #04: Click on the “Friends Status’ Feed” link on the page.
You should now see a RSS feed of your friends’ activities. The URL will look like this:
The second number is your Facebook Friends Key. Copy this number and put it aside.
Step # 05: Create the RSS URLs
Once you have your 3 Facebook numbers (facebook_id, your_internal_key and your_friend_key), you’re ready to make your custom RSS feeds. All you have to do to is copy and paste them into the link structures below.
