The Facebook Activity component displays the most interesting recent activity taking place on your site. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. The activity feed displays stories both when users like content on your site and when users share content from your site back to Facebook. If a user is logged into Facebook, the plugin will be personalized to highlight content from their friends. If the user is logged out, the activity feed will show recommendations from your site, and give the user the option to log in to Facebook. This component is associated with the Facebook account you will need to connect with your builder site in the Linked Accounts manager.

Where to Find

This Component can be found in the "Add Content to Page" section of the Toolbar.

Adding to Website

After selecting this Component, you will be able to choose exactly where you want to add it!

You will see all available content locations it can be added to - on the current page only (content locations in Gold), on every page (content locations in Red), or on every page under the current page directory (content locations in Blue. For example - if you are editing a page called "About", the blue content locations would allow you to add this component to all pages under the /about/ directory).

If you do not currently have your Facebook account configured as a Linked Account, you will be prompted to make this connection after choosing the content location.



You can optionally set a Title to be displayed above the topic content on your page. Selecting Show Header will display the "Recent Activity" bar at the top of the component.

The Font and Color Scheme fields will give you customization options for the text that displays within this component.

Lastly, the Component Size Width and Height fields will allow you specify the size of the contents within this component (within the boundaries of the component container).


Need to make a change? You can access the settings for this Component again by clicking on the "Settings" button on the Component Toolbar.
