RSS feed from facebook
04 November 2012, 11:49
I am attempting to use an RSS feed from Facebook using the External Feed block but when entering the feed:
I get an error to say that the input is not valid XML. Is there a way to correct this?

I've done a bit of a google around, and apparently the facebook rss feeds can be poorly formed and some validators will fail them. This is facebook's doing and it seems to have been a known issue for a while, so clearly they're not rushing to fix them.
The recommended workaround seems to be to put the feed into http://feedburner.google.com which cleans it up. You can then distribute the feedburner link instead.
Hope this helps,
