This is a huge time saver if you like to consistently post blog articles, news updates, and other things to Facebook. When IFTTT identifies new content from the RSS feed you choose, a new Facebook post will be built and published for you. There are a few options you can customize while setting this up, which we'll go over below. This method only works with Facebook Pages. A 2018 update to Facebook removed the ability to auto-post to profiles. Create a free IFTTT account if you don't already have one, or sign in to your account if you do. Open the Create Your Own page to start building a new connection. Select This. Search for and choose RSS. If you've never used the RSS trigger before, you might also see a Connect button that you have to select. Pick New feed item to have the Facebook post triggered with each and every new content from the RSS feed. You can instead choose New feed item matches if you want the Facebook post to be created when an RSS feed item matches a particular keyword or phrase. Enter the feed URL. Learn how to find an RSS feed on a website if you're not sure what to enter here. If you selected the second option in Step 5, you'll see another box asking about a keyword or phrase. Type into that box whatever you need the feed item to contain before the Facebook post will be created. Select Create trigger. Choose That. Search for and select Facebook Pages. Select Connect, too, if you see it, and then log in to your Facebook account to choose which Facebook Page IFTTT can have access to. Select Create a link post. You actually have three options here, but only one is relevant for sending RSS feed items to Facebook posts. In the Message text box, you can type whatever you want to include along with the URL from the feed. There are variables you can select, too, if you want each post to be more relevant to the URL. For example, if you select Add ingredient, you can pick something like EntryTitle to show the title of the RSS feed item in the Facebook post. There are other options there as well if you want to include the author's name, the content from the feed, or the date it was published. Select Create action. Rename the Applet if you want and optionally enable notifications each time it runs, and then press Finish.
