Social Media Integration

My idea was to have all of my social media aggregated and fed back to this blog on a regular basis. However, the problem I experienced with Facebook was one I hadn’t anticipated.

I could find no easy way to create a stream of my public Facebook posts and integrate it here. Supposedly, one can only do this with Facebook Pages and Facebook Groups but not with regular Facebook personal accounts. Converting your profile into a Facebook Page is not difficult at all, but this was not something I wanted to do. In the end, I decided to use an app that allows me to cross-post public Facebook updates to Twitter and simply embedded a Twitter feed here, which was easy enough to do.

The process and end result turned out very different from the way I had envisioned, but stylistically I’m very happy with the way that my social media content will now be displayed as a snapshot of my latest activity.
