    Does your plugin work for closed Facebook groups? I'm trying to setup a live feed from an existing closed FB group (I'm admin there) to a WP website.

    To be honest, I've seen mixed results with Facebook groups. For some people it works fine and others it doesn't. I don't know why that is. Sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer.

    Thank you for a quick reply. I can try to set it up and find out how reliable it is.

    I made it work for a closed FB group once I passed the Facebook App setup. Yeaaah!

    A quick question, is there any way to do "lazy loading" or asynchronous call to load the Facebook feed? It looks like my home page speed is about 150 ms slower after turning this on. Just trying to keep things as fast as possible.

    Thanks again!

    This plugin is rendered on the server and has to wait until it gets a response from Facebook, so no. Facebook has a plugin that renders posts on the client. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/

    It has been a while. If I remember correctly, the key was to create a Facebook developer account and generate App ID and App Secret keys and configure the correct domain name. It took me several attempts to make it work. It also takes a few minutes for the plugin to pull the new post, just be patient when testing it.
