How to Stop RSS Importing into your Facebook Fan Page (New Facebook)

This is a new update of the previous How to STOP importing RSS Feed in your Facebook Fan Page as the screenshots have changed with the new Facebook Page layout. This is for people who used the NOTES application to previously import their RSS feed into Facebook. I still love this way of importing but sometimes you just need to know how to stop the import or edit it to a new feed.

1.) Edit Page

Login to Facebook, go to your page, and click on Edit Page.

2.) Select Apps

Scroll down and select “Apps”

3.) Notes (Go to App)

4.) Edit Import Settings

On the left-hand-side, underneath your profile picture, is the browse notes and subscribe options. Select “Edit import settings” from the Subscribe options.

5.) Stop Importing

Now you can select Stop Importing to stop your RSS feed from importing into your Facebook fan page.

    If I want to ADD it to my notes how can I do this to the new facebook? This page is about deleting it, but I just want to add it?

      This post is pretty old (facebook doesnt support notes anymore), but to add your blog feed to facebook, I just use networked blogs, a facebook app now, its just faster and easier than keeping up with all the non-updated wordpress plugins http://www.networkedblogs.com/

    I am trying to delete the rss feed from my blog to my Facebook fan page. I have tried your instructions and there is no ‘notes’ in the apps in the new Facebook. Under my apps, there is also no rss feed app. I cannot figure out where this is coming from. I remember setting it up last year but would like to discontinue it. I cannot delete something that is not there. PLease help!

    Thanks,
    Sharyn

      You don’t have “Notes” in the apps in the new facebook?
      Mine still has it, even on pages that I’ve “upgraded” to the new Facebook..
      Maybe you didn’t use Notes to import your RSS feed but some other app? What’s a list of all your apps?

    hello,
    here’s no “Edit Import Setting” link in my fb page. are there something gone wrong with me?

    1. Penny Butler says:

      There’s nothing wrong with you..

      As of September 30, 2011 – you can no longer automatically import posts from your website to your Page notes. See Facebook’s Note about it: https://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=277347965620183

      they have removed the ability to add new rss feeds via their notes, but what is bizarre, is that they have also removed the ability to edit or remove them, which is silly but facebook does silly things :)
      If you don’t also use your “notes” for other things, you can remove it completely by either removing the app from your page or removing it’s ability to publish to your wall (Edit Page > Apps > Notes > Edit Settings > Uncheck “Publish to my wall”) until Facebook have figured out they have goofed up and provide a better solution..

      Problem is.. you can’t seem to delete them or modify any that you have already, which is just bizarre :

      1. Penny Butler says:

        Try removing the Notes app altogether?
