|Hi Juerg! Is there a possibility that the next version will support Facebook groups? They use a groupID in the URL after "groups" and a group is kind of different from a page. Thanks for the web part!|
accessing a closed Facebook group is currently not supported by the Facebook web part and would require some specific programming (actually creating a different web part from scratch) to solve the authentication problem.

|Is there any way to make this webpart have a flexible width (like with the Twitter webpart)? I tried putting in -1 for the width but that didn't seem to do the trick.|
the web part actually by default has a flexible width (although it can not be narrower than 180px and wider than 500px).
Please thus set the "Web Part Width" to its maximum of "500".
Please also note that if you interactively make the browser window smaller, you then also need to do a page refresh (eg. the Facebook Timeline only calculates its dimensions when the page is loaded).

|That did the trick! Thank you so much for the quick response and wonderful webpart.|
|Using Sharepoint Online. There isn't a "Miscellaneous" pane. Only Appearance, Layout, and Advance.|
The Miscellaneous section is restricted by permission of SharePoint Online. Can you please check your permission level on this site.
|Hi dear - I deployed and added the web part to a web part page and put the facebook ID to the Facebook Timeline field but nothing shows on the web part. Any idea please? |
please just enter the name of the Facebook timeline into the web part’s “Facebook Timeline” setting.
Can you enter the below for testing purposes to see if the web part returns any data:
Also, could it be that connecting to Facebook with a browser is prohibited from within your corporate network ?
