The fine engineers over at Facebook have done something pretty neat. You can now “import” all your Pandora activity (station creation, bookmarked songs and artists) into your Facebook news feed.
Setting it up couldn’t be simpler — just visit your Facebook profile page and click the “import” link at the top of the Mini-Feed section, select Pandora, enter the email address you used when you registered with Pandora and Facebook will fetch your most recent station creations as well as your recent bookmarks and add them to your mini-feed. Better still, from that point on, any time you create a station or bookmark something on Pandora those events will automatically be added to your mini-feed also. It’s a great way to keep your Facebook friends up to date on your latest musical discoveries.
We feel pretty lucky to be included in the very short list of sites that Facebook is choosing to integrate directly into the mini-feed. Thanks Facebook!

    Hi Lucia, Thank you. I did receive an email from Mike in the support team. He gave me instructions to add Pandora to the import list (which I had already done). It seems that I need to manually update the imports at this time, is this correct? Also, it seems that the "Kellie is now listening to..." newsfeed is no longer active. Will you guys consider bringing that back if possible? It seems that many of us miss that function. Thanks so much!

    Just a FYI, but accessing Pandora from Facebook as described has been broken for months, at least for me. I am able to log into Pandora with my email address using the website or iPhone app, but on Facebook it says "The email or user name you entered is not valid. Please verify and try again.". I just logged out and in again using my email address on pandora.com, so I know its working.

    I think I'm asking for something that's a hybrid of the mini feed and the application (but I'm not completely sure I understand the difference between those). I would prefer if the "Recent Stations" had the most recently *listened to* stations, rather than the most recently added stations. That would make it even more awesome! (or if Pandora listed my stations in most recently listened order or if I could choose that order, that would be double awesome)

    What I found weird and somewhat invasive was that a Pandora story about my activity appeared in the FB news feed even though: a) I have not logged into Pandora in months; b) I am not a "fan" of Pandora or part of any other Pandora FB group; c) I do not use any Pandora app on FB; and d) the activity that was posted as happening on April 16 (bookmarking particular artists) happened months, possibly even over a year ago.
