Facebook and the NetworkedBlogs App.

Why do geneabloggers create their blogs, you ask? To share information, innovation and ideas with the public. And what reaches more people worldwide than Facebook?

I have recently discovered another way to get traffic to your blog, it’s a Facebook application called NetworkedBlogs that adds a blog roll to your Facebook profile.

You can just put a widget in your blog to connect it to the Facebook app. You can add more blogs to your list also.

Choose the News Board tab and you can see all of your favourite blogs’ most recent posts.

There is a Discussion Board for any comments you would like to add too.

There is a page for Businesses too.

It is a great way for all of your Facebook friends who are also bloggers to stay up-to-date with their favourite blogs without leaving the site. It will increase your readership and maybe some of your friends will be encouraged to start their own blog!

Here’s how to get started:

I am still playing around with the application, exploring all of it’s features. I think this is one of the best applications Facebook has come up with yet!

    A great write up on Networked Blogs and thanks for the how to with snapshots! Personally, I don't use the Networked Blogs app on Facebook as a reader or a way to read genealogy blog posts – just, as you said, another method of letting me get my blogs out there and noticed.
