The page widget, as shown in figure 2, shows the details of a Facebook Page. Note that Facebook Pages are different from Facebook personal profiles: if you only have a personal profile, you will need to create a Page. Pages can be recognised by the presence of a Like button; personal profiles have an Add Friend button instead. For more details see Facebook’s Getting Started guide for Pages.
