Facebook Placement Settings

The Placement Settings for the Component sets which column(s) the Component will appear. Each Page of the app can have a different number of columns that are set in the Layout section of the Page Settings. The following Placement settings are available for this Component:

  • Column Start - Sets the column where the Component will start. 
  • Pro Tip: If Display Timeline is toggled on, do not add more Components beneath the Facebook Page Component on any page. The Facebook Page Timeline will create a long scrolling experience and app users are not likely to see additional Components placed below the Facebook Page Component.
  • Column Span - Sets how many columns the Component will span. 
  • Pro Tip: The Facebook Page Component will appear best on mobile devices when it is set to span all columns of a page. Placing multiple Facebook Page Components next to one another can cause them to overlap on smaller screen sizes.
  • Padding - Sets how much space will appear on the top, bottom, left, and right of the Component. When building a Page with multiple Components, the Padding will determine the overall spacing between Components.
  • Display Mode - Sets how the Component is displayed. If Both is selected, the Component will always show. Both are the default option. If Optimal is selected, the Component will only show if the browser supports the app. The main supported browsers are Chrome and Safari. If Degraded is selected, the Component will only show if the browser does not support the app. The main unsupported browser is Internet Explorer.
