FFmpeg could use IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/myrecipes/personal) or
Zapier (https://zapier.com/) to automatically update the Facebook page
from the RSS feed. It could also work for the Twitter account, instead
of posting manually.
I've been using both for a while now for the same purpose and it works
very well.

Facebook is undoubtedly the most used social network. It's becoming a
pretty standard way of communicating with users, even for
developers-related products and in the open-source community.
