To be honest, the difference is so small between the way those two plugins look like on a website, it made us wonder why Facebook would go through something like this. In the below screenshot of our website, you can see both plugins – or boxes – activated at the same time.
Yes, the new Page Plugin brings a better looking box and you now have more options to customise the way it looks like. For example, it clearly puts forward your cover photo.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
On top of choosing how wide and tall you want the box to appear on your website, you can also choose to use your cover photo or not, show the profile pictures of friends who also like the page and finally decide whether you want the box to include a feed of your recent Facebook posts or not.
The new Page “box” also includes a share button that lets users share a link to the page on their own timeline or on another user’s profile.
To setup your new Page Box, simply head to the Page Plugin page on the Facebook developers website.
