FaceBook Follow widget definitely not working

This suddenly stopped working, without any changes to my site, so I suspect FB changed something.

Note that FB "Like" Widget IS working. Inserting "FaceBook Follow" widget gives me "!" triangle in an empty box, even with all of the default "Muse" parameters.

Any thoughts?

To be perfectly clear, I DO NOT think this is a Muse issue - It seems that Facebook changed something about the way their "Follow" code works, or took it out completely. I have scoured the internet on how to manually add this, and I could NOT find any code that works. Even the FB pages that used to provide sample code on this are now broken links:

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/follow-button

And, no "Follow" plugin at all in the FB Social Plugins page:

Social Plugins - Documentation - Facebook for Developers

I challenge anyone to provide a code example of the WORKING FB "Follow" button (Not Like or Share)

for cracking ice... I just PAID my website host service provider (web.com) to fix the Muse reCAPTCHA2 not working issue, and the next day my Facebook Follow quits working. Wow, surprise, surprise. After surfing the Adobe Forums on this issue I find out I'm not the only one who now has this New Facebook Follow issue.

I agree. This indeed may NOT be a Muse issue. My initial thought was my web hosting service provider messed up my Facebook Follow, as FB follow seemed to be working just fine up and until I paid my provider to fix the php.ini to resolve reCAPTCHA2 not working. I want the solution, but I don't want to keep paying for it.

You are right, I couldn't find it either, looks as if Facebook may have dropped the Follow button. I just used what appears to be an updated Like button, which now shows the like and share buttons, as well as the number of people who have "liked"

Hi all!

Would like to contribute to the discussion.

I prefer using special customizable widgets for integrating my Facebook page to the website.

This one is perfect for my purposes: https://elfsight.com/facebook-feed-widget/adobe-muse/

Advise you to check it.

I use template with full FB page displaying. It’s like 2 in 1, rather convenient.
