    My apologies for not responding to this sooner! I didn’t receive a notification of your post. I hope this isn’t too late!

    The Facebook feed within GlobalFeed requires that you setup a Facebook app. Essentially what this is is a way of accessing your Facebook profile/wall/stream etc without being on This is your way of telling Facebook “This server is allowed to get stuff from my account without being a Facebook user”.

    Enough about that, on to setting it up. You’ll want to have a Facebook account and head over to the Facebook Developers Site. Here you’ll want to first setup your Facebook account as a developer, then create a new app by going to the apps tab at the top right. Once you’ve created an app, Facebook will give you an app and an app secret.

    Before you can use GlobalFeed however you’ll have to setup your domain with your app. Within the settings page for the app you’ve created, you’ll see a box that says app domains, you’ll need to add your domain name here. Also under the heading “Select how your app integrates with Facebook” you’ll want to check “Website with Facebook Login” and place the URL to your site ( here. Save your changes and you should be setup. Now just paste the App ID and App Secret into GlobalFeed and you should be good to go!

    I’ll try and post this as a step-by-step tutorial at some point so that its easier to follow.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to ask more questions.
