Display Recommendations from Fan Page (5 posts)

    I'm wondering if anybody knows a way to show the "Recommendations from Friends". I run a "fan page" for my business, and a few of my friends have posted some reviews. I'd like those reviews to show up in a sidebar on my page (almost exactly like they do on the fan page).

    As far as I can tell, this is different from the current SFC Facebook Recommendations widget, which "just" shows who recommends the page. I want to feed the actual comments from "recommendation from friends" to my page. I wonder if there is a restriction on who can view the comments - are they "publicly feedable"?

    If you are talking about the "Reviews" tab, Facebook is eliminating that entirely. So.. not really worth developing a way to display reviews on your own site if they're going about.

    Or maybe I'm confused and don't know what you're talking about. Can you give me a link to the content on Facebook that you want to display on your own site?

    Note that non-public data is totally not displayable outside Facebook. There are both technical and legal restrictions involved.

    Hey, Otto, thanks for the reply. The page that you referred me to has a link to this page:

    Can you access this page?
    The Recommendations list is on the right.

    According to the help center link above, users can choose to post that information publicly (thank god!).

    I'm totally buying you a beer if we can figure this out.

    Yes, I can see those, but as far as I know, there's no way to access that information through the Facebook Graph API.
