Rss feeds for Facebook groups

This is Wallflux, the app which helps you to export Facebook page- and group-walls to rss and atom-feeds, to iframes, and more.

With Wallflux-feeds you can show the latest news from your group on your website, follow your page in a feed reader, or add the events of your group to your digital calendar. To directly access a Wallflux go to #Rss, #Atom or #iFrame in the menu.

To access a Wallflux feed you need the Facebook ID of your group, page, event, etc. A Facebook ID is a number of 8-14 digits. If you don't know your Facebook ID, we will find it for you through our Facebook ID service-page.

Don't hesitate to share your styled Wallflux Atom with @Wallflux!

Privacy

Be aware that the images displayed in a Wallflux Atom are still served by Facebook's CDN. In principle, Facebook could use the retrieval of those images to track your RSS-reader or users of a website where a Wallflux is included. Due to technical limitations, it is not very likely that Facebook retrieves your users' Facebook ID, making Wallflux Atom still less intrusive than Facebooks' own Social Plugins.

If you are looking for a text-only RSS feed for your Facebook groups, pages or events, stripped from all content from FB's servers, try the regular Wallflux feed here.

Unregistered Wallfluxes are cached, so if you're not the first one making a language choice in a short time, it might be you served a localised, cached Wallflux Atom.

If you are being redirected to a plain-text Wallflux feed, without images, chances are that you are not using the ID of a Facebook group or page but for example of a event or a user.

Wallflux iframe

Use Wallflux to embed any Facebook group or page on your website

To preview a Wallflux iframe, enter a Facebook ID, and press Go.

Your Facebook ID only consist of numbers, for example: 115227675156013 - If you do not know your groups' Facebook ID, Wallflux can find it for you through the Facebook ID helper-page.

Here you see the Wallflux iframe of an anti-nuclear-Facebook-group:

You can add an iframe to your html source in similar fashion by using the following html-code:
<iframe id="wallflux"
	name="iframe"
	src="https://www.wallflux.com/iframe/{your Wallflux id}"
	width="100%;"
	height="250px"
	frameborder="0">
	The Wallflux iframe of the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/anti.nuclear">anti.nuclear</a> Facebook-page is embedded here.</iframe>

Wallflux iframes are transparent, allowing you to define your own background color or -image.

Link directly to the your Wallflux iframe by using the following URL:
www.wallflux.com/iframe/115227675156013
…where the number represents the groups' Facebook ID. To store your language-preference, add for example ?hl=fr_FR for French to the URL (nb: the translations are still under development).

The Wallflux iframe of a registered Wallflux has neither a demonstration notice or advertisements, so register your Wallflux today!

iFrame or rss feed?

Wallflux iframe is developed after popular demand. There are a few downsides to embedding iframes, which makes us encourage our users to use a Wallflux Atom or Regular Wallflux instead.

With a Wallfux Atom you can achieve a similar (and better!) result than with a Wallfux iframe. Also, the content of your Facebook group will be actually included on your own website which will increase your sites' SEO.

Parsing a Wallflux at your server will make your website load much quick compared to embedding the iframe.

In order for you to make optimal use of the possibilities of Wallflux, we encourage you to investigate how to process a Wallflux on your own server. On many CMS-systems there are built-in options to process RSS feeds. Do not hesitate to contact us for tips or assistance. We charge a modest fee to help implement a custom feed parser on your website.

Wallflux iframes which are embedded with a width of less than 500 pixels are designed to automatically hide the top demonstration notice because of space constraints.

Courtesy

Wallflux iframes are provided as courtesy to users of registered Wallflux feeds. If we notice that a particular iframe is included so often that it drains significant bandwith of core Wallflux services, we shall disable the iframe without further notice.

Wallflux Events

.ical/.ics calendars for Facebook groups and pages

With Wallflux events you can sync events from groups and pages with a calendar app using .ical/.ics-links.

You can use this app to import events of your Facebook-group into a Google Calendar, Outlook or any other agenda application.

To get a Wallflux Events-calendar, enter a Facebook ID, and press Go:

If you do not know your groups or pages' Facebook ID, we can find it for you through the Facebook ID helper-page.

To link directly to the your Wallflux Events-calendar use the following URL:

https://wallflux.com/events/115227675156013

…where the number represents the Facebook ID of your group or page.

If, instead of an ical calendar, you rather have your Facebook group or -page events aggregated as an RSS feed, you can transform the Wallflux Events-calendar using this Yahoo Pipes.

DEMONSTRATION: See this website, associated with a Facebook page, which lists upcoming FB-events imported through Wallflux.

Some Groups have limited public accessibility of their Group events. This prevents Wallflux Events to return a complete calendar. To (re-)enable the Wallflux event-calendar of such a Group, you need to 'enable' its Wallflux just like that of closed or secret Groups. You can do so by following the method below.

Group Search

Wallflux offers Facebook Group Search. Especially in high-traffic groups it can be hard to keep track of posts matching your interest. With Group Search you can easily search recent Facebook groups-posts by keyword.
Test it out at //wallflux.com/search/115227675156013/nuclear
Replace the number with your Group ID, and off you go!
(Facebook also offers group search, but occasionaly it fails to return results)

Closed and Secret Groups

Due to Facebook privacy settings, Wallflux does not work out-of-the-box for closed or secret Facebook groups.

With a quick user action (adding us to the closed group) you can enable the Wallflux of a closed or secret group, after which it becomes accessible similar to a Wallflux of an open Facebook group.

If you need access to a Wallflux of a private group, please contact us.
Note: To prevent abuse we charge €5 in handling to enable closed and secret groups. Please mention your Group ID with your transfer.

The handling fee only covers actual enabling; Wallflux does not guarantee (permanent) access to a Wallflux feed (of a closed group). No activation rights are obtained by registering the Wallflux of a closed group.

Offloading

Intensive, repeated polling of a certain Wallflux feed (more than 10 times per hour, for several hours) or suppression of a demonstration-notice is considered as abuse, and the Wallflux involved will either be disabled or offloaded to an external service without further notice.

Find Facebook IDs

Wallflux helps you to find the Facebook ID of Facebook groups. A Facebook ID is a many-digit number, eg. 10151313748657248.

Besides for groups, the service might also find the ID for other Facebook entities such as pages, users, apps, but dont be upset if it doesn't. Also, no use trying twice: if the service can't find it the first time, it won't be able to help you.
If you're really lost, you can contact Wallflux for your Group ID.

Paste a complete Facebook URL - for example:
  https://www.facebook.com/anti.nuclear

This page will then try to come up with the Facebook ID and its associated Wallflux feed.

Facebook URL:

- If you uncheck this checkbox you will only get the Facebook ID
