How to pull in Facebook Notifications into Hootsuite from Facebook Profiles and Pages using RSS feeds.  How to Add Facebook Notifications to Hootsuite and use Facebook RSS feed.

1. To Get Facebook Notification RSS feed of your PERSONAL PROFILE

To find your Profile RSS feed, go to > Facebook > Inbox > Notifications. The link should be https://www.facebook.com/notifications

Notifications RSS Facebook

 

Right click on RSS and you will get the feed link: The structure of the feed is:

https://www.facebook.com/feeds/notifications.php?id=FACEBOOK_ID&viewer=FACEBOOK_ID&key=INTERNAL_KEY&format=rss20

2. To Get RSS feed of a BUSINESS Page on Facebook

  • FORMAT: http://www.facebook.com/feeds/page.php?format=atom10&id=PASTE_ID_HERE (mine would be 26531835640 )
