[Curator’s note] RSS Box is an online and « to host » solution using APIs. We can imagine that the online instance could be rapidly saturated due to API’s limits. In the original text, I Love Free Software said it was possible to get RSS feeds from Facebook. It isn’t!

This tutorial will explain how to create RSS feeds for Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc. These are some of the websites which don’t support RSS at all or provide RSS feeds but are quite difficult to find. So, the method explained in this tutorial will help you overcome these problems and easily create an RSS feed for such websites. It can be done using a free web service called “RSS Box”. It supports various website and lets you generate the RSS for a specific profile, channel, etc.

For that, all you would need to do is enter the profile URL, channel URL, or username and then it will automatically generate the RSS feeds. It also provides some additional options for specific websites to choose what you want to include or exclude from the feeds. Once you’re done creating an RSS feed, you can use any of the free online RSS readers or RSS reader software to see and read the content.

  1. There is no Facebook RSS feed generator ain RSSbox as explained on its GutHub page :
    #### Facebook
    « **Note:** This requires an app with the [Page Public Content Access](https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/feature#reference-PAGES_ACCESS) permission which requires manual approval from Facebook and is quite difficult to get. The official RSSBox website doesn’t support Facebook anymore for this reason. » Source : https://github.com/stefansundin/rssbox/commit/2d68699430fd677b39624e9b0e2c097dfd7a9086
