Aha – suppress a category in feed

For a while I’ve been importing blog posts into Facebook automatically. I’ve also been importing Tweets automatically into Facebook updating my status.

This has meant, since I started automatically making blog posts of tweets, that I have been importing tweets into Facebook twice – as they go in statuses, and again every morning as an imported note.

I have now learned how to suppress an entire category from appearing in a feed.

So, if you would like to subscribe to my blog without receiving the daily Twitter post, use this address:

Whereas if all the tweeting doesn’t bother you, use this:

http://www.alexfoster.me.uk/feed

Next to learn… how to use Feedburner to combine my postings here with my postings on Lib Dem Voice (

http://www.libdemvoice.org/author/niles/feed

) into one handy feed to present to Facebook…

Thanks to Perishable Press for the skillz.

    Great tip. I use this regularly. I use the feedburner site as well to actually serve it.
