This tutorial is excellent, but it appears to refer to the 'old' version of Facebook.

As a result if you try to run the application it creates using 'new' Facebook you get errors of the type:

"No content to display. This box will not be visible to people who view your Profile until this application adds content to it."

Has anyone had success adapting this tutorial for 'new' Facebook?

Facebook always seems to change things around.

 Now you can use the Facebook Notes Application to add an RSS or ATOM feed to your page. The only drawback with this method is that it only allows you to add one single feed. 

 You can see more info about this process here:
