If you still want to add the timeline (AKA news feed or posts) from your Team’s Facebook page to your SwimOffice website, follow these steps.

  1. First, your Facebook page must be setup as a celebrity, band, or business page. It cannot be a personal page. You can setup a Facebook page if you don't have one.
