Display facebook feed on web site?

Display facebook feed on web site?

I'm trying to set up the facebook activity feed, but nothing is being displayed on the page when I preview the live site. The facebook link is JohnHoweMovie, so that's what I'm using in the site="" setting.

These are my settings:

<div class="wasocial_facebook_activity_feed">
<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script>
<fb:activity site="https://www.facebook.com/JohnHoweMovie" width="300" height="300" header="false" font="verdana" bordercolor="" colorscheme="light" recommendations="false"></fb:activity>
</div>

What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Now I've got something to display, but I have no idea what it is. It doesn't seem associated with the movie page at all...???

production.php

the activity feed is not intended to show a facebook profile on your site.

the activity feed is used to show the social activity that is taking place on your site.

for example, if you have a site that contains facebook like buttons, comments or recommendations, you can add the activity feed to show which of those options are being used on your site.

"The activity feed is used to show the social activity that is taking place on your site."

That's what I was trying to get it to do, but it's not picking anything up from the site it's supposed to. This is my code:

<div align="center" class="wasocial_facebook_activity_feed">
<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script> <fb:activity bordercolor="#333" colorscheme="light" font="verdana" header="false" height="300" recommendations="false" site="https://www.facebook.com/JohnHoweMovie" width="300"></fb:activity></div>

This is the URL that it's supposed to display from: JohnHoweMovie

This is where the page with the code on it is located: production.php.

I don't know what it's showing, or how it's determining what it's showing, but it's not showing anything from the John Howe Movie Facebook page.

Thanks!

this is a face book profile page:
JohnHoweMovie

the activity feed is not intended to show a facebook profile.

It is intended to show the like and comment activity for a website.



if you have pages on your site at:
johnhowemovie.com

and you include like buttons, and comments on those pages, you can create an activity feed on a page, and tell it to look for activity at:
johnhowemovie.com


and show the like and comment activity.

It wont show activity from a facebook profile though.

I'm not sure I completely understand. On which site would the LIKE buttons and comments go?

the johnhowemovie.com site



think of it this way. On the webassist.com site, there are a number of like buttons.

if you add an activity feed to your site and tell it to use the webassist.com site. it will show the like activity from pages for our site.
