Simpl Facebook Module

The Simpl Facebook Module is a light-weight Joomla module designed to ease the use of Facebook Social Plugins in Joomla. It does not require massive amounts of processing overhead and does not include any Java other than what is required by Facebook. The module allows users to seamlessly integrate a Like Box, Like Button, Send Button, Follow Button, Custom Follow Icons and Comments Box, all in one module! It also includes all of the standard options right in the module's admin interface. In addition, there is a 'responsive' option for Facebook Like Boxes on mobile-optimized websites. In addition, there is a 'responsive' option for Facebook Like Boxes on mobile-optimized websites. Other features include language selector, German translation for back-end, background colors, padding, rounded borders, colored borders or even no borders!


In case you missed it in the description, we have now added the ability to change the language displayed in the front end to just about anything Facebook supports. And thanks to our wonderful community members in Germany, Simpl now features a German translation for the back-end.

If you're interested in having Simpl translated for your native language and would like to get involved, please contact me here:

NOTE: Updating in the Extension Manager for Joomla! 3 no longer supports versions 3.0, 3.1 or 3.2, but they will still work if you download them directly from the website.

The extension is completely non-commercial and no registration is required to download it. Enjoy!

Love this extension and ease of use for a non-coder :-)

I have tested the top 3-4 most popular facebook like modules for my new joomla! 3 site and i can confess that this is the most simple, effective and, not to mention, free. Yet it has many options but without being complicated. It is also recommended for multilingual sites, since you can setup multiple instances of the same module with different language display options and configure each instance to appear in the selected language. This is very handy for my greek-russian-english site. Keep up the good work!

Tried a few Facebook extensions over the years. This looks good, easy to use and responsive. Installed on Joomla 3.2.3. Only minor point is would be happy to pay a small fee to remove the link but it is not obtrusive.

Hi Roy,

Thanks for the kind words! I hear you about the Facebook link on the bottom, but removing it would violate their Terms of Service. At the core of Simpl FB Module is the official Facebook social plugin code, so credit must be given it's due in this case to keep things on the up and up.

Thanks again!

This module has many options that many of the paid modules do not have. I highly recommend getting this module instead of any other, and perhaps spending the money you saved as a donation to the developer.

I was looking for hours a module like this. This is really responsive, not like others that make you waste your time. And free!
Thanks :D

I couldn't show Facebook comment on my Joomla 2.5 website. I tried a lot of plugin and module, they actually show Facebook comment box but when I test comment and refresh the page all comment disappeared. With this module now I have propre Facebook comment.

Thank you for the great review! It was my hope that this extension be as easy to use with as little baggage (unnecessary proprietary code, commercialism, etc.) as possible. Thank you for giving it a try!

Thank you very much for the review! I have not had a chance to test it on Joomla! 3 as of yet, so that is good to know!
