When the user clicks the like button on your site, a story appears in the user’s friends’ News Feed with a link back to your website. People who visit their Facebook page will see they liked your website. Some of them will want to come over and check your site out. This means they will be sending traffic to your site from their Facebook page. As a result you get more visitors to your site.
These visitors from Facebook will come to your site because someone they know likes your site. This kind of recommendation is valuable. These visitors often spend more time on your site because they trust the opinion of their Facebook friends and contacts.

One day, it stopped working. I posted to the support forum and fairly quickly, I got a response. The problem was that they client had switched between her personal fb page and the fan page - so thus, it stopped working as this module doesn't work on a personal fb page.
The client switched back and presto - all good.
I didn't use any of the css settings - it was fine with the client so I just left it. It took longer to find the module than it did to set it up.
Seems this user does not know how to configure a simple Joomla module. You can see various variations possible and working at following demo:
The Facebook Fanbox Pro module has an error in it when dealing with the FaceBook API (modes 3 and 4 of the module). The error will take an entire site offline. The support for this modlue is non-existent. Nothing. Nada. Occasionally they'll check in on their forums, ask another question, then disappear for several weeks - at least that is true when dealing with this one issue (which is a huge issue).
Would you install a program that could take your entire site offline? Then don't install this! Hopefully the author can report back here when the bugs have been fixed.
We provided free support to this user for several weeks and had a look in the issue. We told the user the issue is not being caused by Module but most like it is because of the way server is configured. We tried to replicate the issue on our server but we did not have any problem.
Testing and replicating the issue on test servers takes time and that's why there was delay in replies. Long story short we in the end issued a full refund.
Module works perfectly as shown in demo and you can contact us if you would like to see it working on other live websites too.
Sorry that you had problems, we go through every single post on out forum and make sure to reply and provide support for any issues. All support provided in forum is free of charge, see for yourself: http://www.khawaib.co.uk/forum/2-facebook-fanbox-pro/
Love it. The only difficult thing for me was to find the Facebook page ID since I have a vanity Facebook page. If you right click on your profile picture and select properties, you can view your page ID.
Works good in Joomla 1.6 with no conflicts discover on my site.
It's commercial, so I feel some slightly better installation instructions are in order, especially for novice Joomla users. Redirecting them to reams of generic Joomla instructions (not all of which work) is just confusing.
New users: FTP the contents of the zip file to a subfolder (of your making) in tmp.
Then login to site backend as admin. Go to Extensions - Install/Uninstall - Install from Directory (adding the subfolder you created to the end of the string).
I like this module very much and I believe that everyone who has a site and want to connect it to Facebook must use it.
I had some problems with the installation and Ahmed help me with kindness and patience.
I also believe that a commercial product MUST have a good tutorial and manual for us to understand.
I have this module and I really don't know much about it because of that.
The manual on the site is simple, too much...
I must say again, Ahmed did help me and the module works, but I depend on him.
Another tip for Ahmed, I believe that a module that could have also the "share to a friend" option on the site and the Fanbox on one product could be great!
I added this to a client's website who didn't have a clue what I meant when I asked himm to get me an API key for his Facebook page. Then I asked him to set up a Page for his business. That didn't seem to work either. So finally I tried to log in as him on his Facebook page, and discovered that the version of Facebook he was using (in Spain/UK) didn't have that option. (I am in US.) He had set up a Group, and there was no way to even add another Administrator.
But this plugin was simple, worked exactly the way I needed it to. Thanks! Well worth the nominal fee for the extension. And highly recommended.
