You can create a custom Facebook feed that automatically displays your Facebook posts from a page or a group directly on your website.

In this article, we’ll show you how to easily set up a custom Facebook feed to improve engagement and help grow your social media following.

Why Create a Custom Facebook Feed in WordPress?

With over 2.7 billion active users, Facebook is the largest and most popular social media platform in the world.

It helps build credibility and improve visibility for your brand.

Now, you may already post engaging content on your Facebook pages and groups. But wouldn’t it be great if your website visitors could see this content too?

Instead of manually posting your Facebook content to your site, you can create a custom Facebook feed. This will automatically fetch content that you post to Facebook and showcase it on your site.

Here’s a glimpse of what a Facebook feed would look like on your website:

Your visitors can view and like posts and also like your page directly from your site without having to go back to Facebook.

With the feed, you can grow your Facebook following and get more likes. Plus, you can add fresh content to your site to increase engagement and drive traffic.

That said, let’s get started with adding a custom Facebook feed to your WordPress site.
