    Hi
    I use wordpress 3.5.1 with WP-Flybox 3.9

    The website url is bodis.co.za

    When i use the following facebook url http://www.facebook.com/stemon.bodis
    i recieve a blank facebook box on the top left corner of the screen.

    When i use this url https://www.facebook.com/youtube i do get the correct data in the WP-Flybox in the top left corner of the screen.

    Is there anything we need to do at the Facebook account???
    Any help would be much appriciated.

    Cheers Bjorn

    Hey Bjorn,
    Facebook only allows Facebook Pages to be shown on external websites. Since the link you want to use is a personal one it will not show up. This is a limitation on Facebook's end. If you want to create a Facebook page for your website and use that link, then it will work.

    This may help also. It is a quick tutorial on how to convert your personal profile to a fan page or other type page that will work on external sites.
