There are many businesses which sales products with Facebook social services. To advertise or sell on Facebook and Instagram, you need a catalog that contains information about your products. The module generates the product data feed files for the Facebook Commerce Manager in automatic mode (by URL). After adding the data feed URL on Facebook you will be able to promote your products in sales channels, on Facebook Shops, Instagram Shopping, with dynamic ads, and more.
A feed is a file that contains a list of products you want to advertise through Merchant Center. When you add your products, you’ll assign attributes to each one. Your product feeds will use these attributes to group your products together. Once you’ve created a feed, it can be used multiple times across as many Merchant Center features as you need. There are multiple types of feeds in Merchant Center. The types of feeds you use will depend on your needs as a retailer. The product attributes you use to describe your products to Merchant Center are the same across all types of feeds.
A web feed is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a web feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe to it. Making a collection of web feeds accessible in one spot is known as aggregation, which is performed by an Internet aggregator. A web feed is also sometimes referred to as a syndicated feed.... web syndication refers to making web feeds available from a site in order to provide other people with a summary of the website's recently added content (for example, the latest news or forum posts).
On the World Wide Web, a web feed (or news feed) is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a web feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe a channel to it by adding the feed resource address to a news aggregator client (also called a feed reader or a news reader). Users typically subscribe to a feed by manually entering the URL of a feed or clicking a link in a web browser or by dragging the link from the web browser to the aggregator, thus "RSS and Atom files provide news updates from a website in a simple form for your computer."
The kinds of content delivered by a web feed are typically HTML (webpage content) or links to webpages and other kinds of digital media. Often when websites provide web feeds to notify users of content updates, they only include summaries in the web feed rather than the full content itself. Many news websites, weblogs, schools, and podcasters operate web feeds. As web feeds are designed to be machine-readable rather than human-readable they can also be used to automatically transfer information from one website to another without any human intervention.
