How I Update Facebook Status With “Via OgbongeBlog”

If you’re my Friend on Facebook, you would have noticed that most of my Facebook updates are now tagged with “Via Ogbongeblog”. If anyone clicks on the “Via OgbongeBlog” link in the News Feed, it takes the person directly to Ogbongeblog.com.

Well, Facebook Feed Dialog makes this possible. You can also be posting to Facebook with “Via your blog name”. It’s so easy.

For you to create such for your site, you will need the Facebook application ID of the site. You will have to include it in the Feed Dialog URL which you will have to create for this purpose.

If you don’t know the Facebook App ID of your site, read: How To Get Facebook Application ID and Secret Key.

How To Generate Facebook Feed Dialog URL

 

==> Edit the code below with your appID.

https://www.facebook.com/dialog/feed?
  app_id=150436614997987
  &display=page
  &redirect_uri=http://www.facebook.com

You can also replace the www.facebook.com with a link to your site. Not compulsory to change the Facebook Feed dialog redirect_uri though. If you leave it as it is, then you will be redirected to Facebook.com after updating your status.

==> Copy and paste in your browser address bar. Hit the “Enter” or “OK” button.

You should see something like this:

Facebook feed dialog

==> Type whatever you want to post to Facebook and click “Share”.

That’s all.

In the Facebook News Feed, it will appear like this:

On your Facebook Timeline, it will appear like this:

Bookmark the Feed Dialog URL so you won’t have to be typing it every time.You can use CTRL D to do this on PC.Your mobile browser will also have an option for such.

If you have an iPad, once the URL opens in your browser, go to the browser options and tap the “Add to Home Screen“. This will create a shortcut on your iPad which you can always tap whenever you want to post to Facebook.

Try it and let me know if it works for you.

Please, SHARE this with your friends.

Hopefully soon, I hope to publish the “share to download” trick I’m using on my Free eBooks Page. So, Subscribe to updates if you don’t want to miss it.

Have fun!

    • Na. That's why I said you should bookmark the page. Copy and paste the URL to your browser and hit enter. Once the dialog opens, use CTRL D to bookmark the page on PC. If you are using a mobile browser, the browser will have an option for this too.
