    Hi Eric, will this extension slow down my magento site? I realize that sites with facebook fanbox installed usually have longer loading time.

      Hi Mike, actually all facebook plugin will slow down your site a little bit because it takes a little time to finish loading facebook components. However this is not significant, so you shouldn’t worry about this. I tested on a same site with FacebookFanbox installed and not installed, the difference between loading time is only 0.3s, which is safe for every site
