Why Is My Facebook Feed Not Showing Up on my Listing?

The feed you’re trying to display has to be a publicly accessible page or an open group. If your page has any restrictions on it (age or location) then it means that users are forced to sign into Facebook in order to view your page. This isn’t desirable for most pages as it means that it isn’t accessible by people who don’t have a Facebook account and that your page can’t be crawled and indexed by search engines.

An easy way to determine whether your page is set to public is to make sure you’re signed out of your Facebook account and then try to visit your page. If Facebook forces you to sign in to view your page then it has a restriction on it.

Solution:

You can remove any restrictions by logging into your Facebook account and going to the Settings for your page. You can then remove any Country Restrictions and Age restrictions (see screenshot). Once removed this will allow the Custom Facebook Feed plugin to access and display your posts.

Below is what will show to anyone trying to go to your page and are not logged into Facebook. Which means people that do not have Facebook accounts they will not be able to view your Facebook page at all.
