How can I get a URL to a Facebook Newsfeed, and if possible, notifications feed?

There were methods to get Facebook Newsfeed to your application, but recently they haven't been working. Or maybe I'm using them wrong.

I used Rainmeter with some awesome widgets and several of them need us to input a URL of the newsfeed, but I can't figure out how to get it.

Rainmeter and those other apps frequently expect an RSS feed for your account's notifications (for example when someone likes a comment of yours). Facebook does not provide your "News Feed" (friends' posts) via RSS, but only through their API.

The feed for your account's notifications can be found at https://www.facebook.com/notifications and copy the URL provided in the "RSS" link.

Shinigamae, did that work for you? :) – JonathanMumm Apr 26 '12 at 22:04
I've not been home yet to try it. But by seeing the link format, I think it will work. – Shinigamae Apr 27 '12 at 2:11
it works fine =) thanks. Sr for late response. – Shinigamae May 1 '12 at 4:37

facebook-atom.appspot.com can convert your Facebook news feed to an Atom feed that you can read in a feed reader.
