  2. Hi Eric, will this extension slow down my magento site? I realize that sites with facebook fanbox installed usually have longer loading time.

    • Hi Mike, actually all facebook plugin will slow down your site a little bit because it takes a little time to finish loading facebook components. However this is not significant, so you shouldn’t worry about this. I tested on a same site with FacebookFanbox installed and not installed, the difference between loading time is only 0.3s, which is safe for every site

  3. Thanks for this tutorial, I follow your tutorial and the fanbox worked on my site. Look forward to more free magento extension tutorials like this one

  4. Can I select where to place the fanbox on my homepage?

  5. i didn’t receive the license key when i downloaded the fanbox, or should i insert magento license key?

  6. This tutorial is really good. Also with Magento Facebook app it is possible to build and setup a store on your facebook page.
