Integrating activity feed of a Facebook page in your SharePoint site


For the past couple of days one of my colleagues was trying to integrate the activity feed of our client’s Facebook brand page in the client’s public portal. When I was looking into it I initially tried with the Activity Feed plugin provided in the Facebook plugins page.

Our requirement was to load all the activities that are happening in our Facebook page such as comments, posts, videos, likes etc. But when I was using the activity feed plugin I realized that the activity feed plugin only brings the Facebook page activity done from the site in which it is currently hosted. For example, if you have integrated the activity feed plugin in your site http://demo.yoursite.com/, the plugin only shows the activity that is created from http://demo.yoursite.com. But our intentions was to bring the complete set of activities happening in the Facebook page.

Thankfully I found out the Facebook Like Box which met our requirements. It fetches the completely activity feed of a Facebook page and integrates into your site. You can also comment and like posts from the plugin.
