    Hello!
    There are a lot of ways to get your WP posts to be posted on your Facebook wall, but I'm looking for the oppositeā€¦ I want to display my Facebook wall on a WordPress page (statusupdates, pictures, links and so on). Preferably as a widget. Have searched but not found.

    Can you please help me!?

    Kind regards,
    Karl

    I'm looking for the same thing. I have yet to find anything out there. I have started on the code to do it myself, but I'm not really familiar with how to make it a plug-in or widget. Let me know if you find something.

    have a look a the simple facebook connect plugin by otto, http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/

    I am trying to find a plugin that does it the other way around, that is anything posted on facebook gets added into my word press blog.

    I'm looking for the same thing also. Preferably anything posted to facebook and/or twitter gets pushed to my wordpress blog. I'm pretty surprised that there is no plugin or solution to this.

    yes Otto kindly replied to me, see below:

    "Otto wrote:
    No, many people have asked for it. I haven't written it because it's technically against Facebook's Terms of Service.

    Basically they have a problem with taking data from them and storing it yourself. You don't own the comments on FB, so copying them is not allowed, sort of thing."

    Guess that does not help butdoes explain why such an obvious plugin is not available.

    Dear fellow searchers!
    Since I started this post I have to give an update on my status regarding this question:

    I've come across this plugin/widget that kinda solves the problem:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-like-box-widget/

    It's called Facebook Like Box and it is a Facebook solution for putting content from a Facebook Page (not a personal profile but a "fan page") on your blog. It has some limitations, but for me it is enough since it shows entries (status updates, pictures etc) and how many thumbs up the page's got. And it does it as a widget wich I find suitable for my needs. Together with this little fix to get rid of the iframe border it works great for me:

    I know this is not what all of you guys are looking for but maybe it suits some of you.

    Here's a picture of how it looks on my page (can't post the link since it's under development).

    Good luck!

    I wrote some code that will allow you to display your Facebook wall feed from your personal Facebook profile. You can check it out: http://fedil.ukneeq.com/2011/06/23/facebook-wall-feed-for-wordpress-updated/
    I just posted it today. I tested it on my own blog and it seemed to work. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Not exactly a wp plugin, but this worked really well for me: http://www.neosmart.de/social-media/facebook-wall
