Alternatives to "RSS Graffiti?"
August 26, 2010 2:11 PM   Subscribe

Does anyone know of a more dependable alternative to RSS Graffiti? It does all the right things, but also does some squirrelly things it shouldn't...

I have a client who uses the product "RSS Graffiti" to publish their website feed and Twitter accounts to their Facebook page. Recently, it has begun double- and triple-posting and just generally acting bizarre.

Does anyone know of an alternative product that does the same things but doesn't break all the time? The online support logs I could find indicate that the makers usually just (perhaps quite correctly) blame the RSS feed itself rather than their product, but I am sure that's not the case here.

Thanks.

Why can't they just use the built-in tools FB has to grab Twitter and blog feeds, rather than a push methodology?

I think it's about publishing across platforms, but I am not completely sure. That's certainly a fair question. Suffice to say that they want an alternative 3rd-party tool, even is maybe that's not what they should want.

What platform/CMS is the site running on, if any? Most of any significance will have a plugin or tool of some kind that integrates directly by now. On the other hand, I would normally assume you'd already have looked into that, so is third-party a requirement for some reason?

I don't know if it is a requirement for a reason, only that it is a requirement. They're not happy with their CMS's tools' ability to hang with their setup, though.
