Connecting your site to Facebook has several benefits. If you post to Facebook often, adding a Facebook Feed means you don't have to double your work or force your visitors to check several places for the latest content.
Adding a feed to your site also drives traffic back to your Facebook page, and social sharing is a great form of free advertising.
Convinced? Adding a Facebook feed to your DevKit site is simple. Here's how it works.
Add a feed
To add a Facebook Feed:
- First, get the Facebook Recent Activity widget.
- Next, find it in your Widgets drawer and drag it onto a page.
- To connect the widget to a particular page, in the Facebook Page URL box, add the URL of your Facebook page (e.g., facebook.com/moboommobile).
So far you have a pretty basic feed that shows the name of your Facebook page and how many likes it has.
Next, add more features.
Configure a feed
The Facebook Recent Activity widget has several options that you can configure. Here's what they do.
Width & Height
Width & Height allow you to set a specific width and height using px (e.g., 200px).
Show Faces adds profile pics of the people who have liked your Facebook page.
Show Stream adds a scrolling list of your latest Facebook posts.
Show Header adds a heading at the top of the widget that says "Find us on Facebook." Leaving this header off can streamline the widget a bit, but adding gives your visitors an extra clue that this is a Facebook feed. So decide what works best for your audience.
So as you can see, just a few clicks and you've got a Facebook feed.
