Instructions

As always, log in to edit the page in SharePoint by clicking Editor Login in the bottom right corner of the page, and enter your Campus Connect username and password. Next, click the Edit symbol at the top of the page, or go to the Page tab and click Edit. If the ribbon does not appear, you can access it through the Site Actions dropdown by selecting Show Ribbon, or edit the page directly from the dropdown menu. 

Inserting the Facebook Web Part

1. Go to the Insert tab in the ribbon, and click on Web Part.

2. Select Facebook Web Part, and click Add.

3. Enter the username of your Facebook profile. The username is whatever comes after the slash on the end of the URL of the profile. (Example: For the page www.facebook.com/DePaullas​, you would put DePaullas as the username.)

4. The web part defaults to show the profile's header and a "Like Page" button. If you do not want the header image to appear, click the check box next to Hide Cover Art. If you want the activity of the profile to show, click the box next to Include Activity Stream.​

5. Click Save in the web part.​
