Custom Facebook Slider

Gain likes, fans, connect with your audience.

To use:

Input your Facebook ID in the module manager to display the Facebook feed on your Joomla page.

To find your facebook ID go to http://graph.facebook.com/yourpage123 and you will receive a response similar to this:

{
“name”: “Facebook Platform”,
“website”: “http://developers.facebook.com”,
“username”: “platform”,
“founded”: “May 2007”,
“company_overview”: “Facebook Platform enables anyone to build…”,
“mission”: “To make the web more open and social.”,
“products”: “Facebook Application Programming Interface (API)…”,
“likes”: 449921,
“id”: 19292868552,
“category”: “Technology”
}

Copy and paste the “id” number into the Custom Facebook Slider and the feed will display correctly in any SIDEBAR module position.
