Facio - Jquery Plugin that creates a Facebook Fan page feed widget with Likes


Check out [New version Facio 2.0]

Every business and most blogs now have their own facebook fan page. Now I introduce, Facio - a new jQuery plugin that creates a widget on your website. This widget will have the recent feeds of your fan page and will also display what other people are talking about it. A like box for the fan page is also displayed in the widget. Just include this plugin, specify your fan page URL and expose social content of your fan page on your website!






How to use:

The download pack contains the plugin file - facio.min.js and the HTML file deployed in the demo facio.html

1. Specify your blog URL

Enter you facebook fanpage URL in a piece of javascript as shown below. You may also customize the dimensions of your widget as required.


2. Include plugins

Include the jQuery plugin if not done already. Now, include the plugin facio.min.js before the end of your body tag and you are done!


3. Create a container for your interface

Add a div as shown below in you HTML. This div will contain the facio widget and display likes with Fanpage feed.


Voila! - fanpage feeds on your webpage - done!

    1. Aahhh.. IE, so you brought the dagger to the table :D
      well, the problem is that such kind of AJAX requests are not supported by IE 7/8 ..

      Good news is that it works in IE 10 :)

    1. Well, any Facebook page URL of the form - "http://www.facebook.com/SamsungMobileIndia?ref=stream" OR "http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sheldon-Cooper/23519525029?ref=stream" is working for me ... and the feeds are displayed..

  6. Hi Jake,

    as said before, really looking forward at the new version of Facio.
    I came across problems... The loading time is effecting the webpage. This happens when the user uploaded movie's to his timeline. When the movie autoplays the loading time gets even worse! This is dramatic when there are multiple movies on the timeline.
    Whe PM-ed about the not clickable links, you've fixed this very kindly but the picture's on the timeline can't be clicked, is this what your new version takes care of?

    Further more i really want to thank you for making this plugin. Guys like you make the lives of n00B's like me more easy.

  8. If you are focused on establishing your business in the United Kingdom, it would be the best idea to gain UK targeted likes on your business related Facebook pages, because it would help spreading information about your products and services in an easier manner.
