My latest side projects provide Atom feeds for your Facebook news feed, your Twitter stream, or any Twitter list. You can use them to read your friends’ posts in an RSS/Atom feed reader instead of directly on Facebook or Twitter. Try them out!
Facebook used to provide
RSS for the news feed, but they
a couple years ago and
dropped it altogether
a couple weeks ago. The only working solution I’ve found is
which works but isn’t very accessible.
Twitter also used to support RSS and Atom in their API, but they deprecated them when they announced the new API, and recently dropped them altogether. There’s a Yahoo Pipe that does the conversion, but it uses the old API and doesn’t authenticate, which the new API requires, so it won’t last long.
