RSS indexing upgraded

We’ve just upgraded our RSS/Atom news feed indexer – this should solve the ‘We are currently indexing this feed. Please wait…‘ issue where custom feeds were taking some time to index. Feeds should now always complete their initial indexing within a few seconds.

    We don’t currently support authenticated feeds. If you’re talking about the GMail inbox feeds, we’ll be announcing support for that soon.

    Basecamp authentication would be very cool- right now I’m using my rss screensaver on my mac to see updates at basecamp. Yes, I am that pathetic.

    I love what you are doing with this app.

    Is it possible to get a feed of particular stock quotes to display in a pane?

    Excellently written article, if only all bloggers offered the same content as you, the internet would be a much better place. Please keep it up!

    Hi Tanya, When looking at adindg feeds to your facebook page it isn’t always a one size fits all approach. There are a few key things to remember when considering porting content through to your page and posting it out to your fans.The first thing to consider is (no matter what content it is that you are porting into your page) what the overall aims and objectives of your facebook page are. If your objectives are to form a relationship with guests and encourage a fun and friendly environment where you can share images, stories and interesting information then you need to ensure your content fits that goal. If your objectives are purely informative and more of the marketing feel then placing more of this type of information on the page will work.The second thing to consider is the general demographics of your likers and why they became likers to begin with. If your likers fit your target market, are generally past guests and were enticed to the page with a keep up to date and receive the occasional special offer’ then you need to ensure that this does continue and your likers don’t get bombarded with a collection of marketing and media posts.The third thing, and really the question that is only answerable on a case by case basis is the actual content of the feed posts. Where we recommend a blog feed as it is generally softer content, about your specific business/ closely related topics and information your current/past/ future guests may want to read about it is not always going to be the case for a media feed, and where a website does fully allow the reader to skip the section, if this feed is going to be pulling through to your status updates and in turn their news feed it is a bit harder to ignore (and to do so they may just remove you from their news feed definitely not a positive action).I guess with all of this in mind, you really need to assess what the content will include. Does the feed content fit the same feel and style of your current posts and information? Does it add to the page feel and not only fit in but also reach and improve your objectives.If you want to, you can send through a little more information about what the media feed will include, from that we can take a look at how it fits your current page and give you our feel as to whether or not this would be a good idea.Cheers Mel+4Was this answer helpful?
