== Frequently Asked Questions ==
1. Can I aggregate more than 1 Facebook Activity Feed in a single widget?<br />No, Facebook is clear that multiple activiy feeds are not available at this time.
2. Why is there a delay in displaying the widget?<br />Keep in mind that the widget is an iframe that reads data from Facebook's servers. So if their activity feed servers are slow, then you will notice a latency.
3. How do I get the popup for the color selector to close?<br />Just tab or move your cursor to another field, it'll close on its own.
== Screenshots ==

2. How the Widget appears on a blog.
