Adding your blog to your Facebook profile is a great way to promote your blog and drive traffic to it. When you add your blog to your Facebook profile, each time you publish a new post, a snippet of that post appears on your profile's home page as a status update. Every friend that you're connected with on Facebook will automatically see that snippet on their Facebook status updates page where they can click on it and visit your blog to read the rest of the post (and if your Facebook profile is public, everyone in with Internet access can see it).

Follow the steps below to add your blog to your Facebook profile.

Difficulty: Easy

Here's How:

  1. Step 1: Visit your Facebook Profile page and select the "Settings" tab under the "What are you doing now?" status update box.
