To mikfrench and marcosanchez I'm having the same problem with Ipod, where FB renders bigger but only in portrait mode. In landscape mode it's 100%. Could it be that it's seeing the landscape mode (480px) as the width of the browser and rendering it that way even in portrait mode? When I put an "@media (max-width: 480px)" CSS style, I can control it on Ipod and have it rendered smaller. But still can't render it 100% on both landscape and portrait. Hope that helps, if anyone has a solution, please let me know. Thanks.

Works like a charm for me but I haven't tested on iDevices yet. Thanks for this. I wish Facebook would make something that works out-of-box for responsive needs.

mikfrench, marcosanchez and jack-fu, did you guys find a solution for that on Ipad? I'm facing the same issue right now.

I used {width: 100% !important;overflow: hidden;} to make the iframe render to the parent size. However, when I decrease the viewport size on my laptop browser, the content/feed does a text-wrap with the width and drops to the next line. However, when viewing on my iphone, the text is cut off. Any idea on what could be an issue? Also, this has been working fine for me for the past month, and just yesterday I started getting an overflow error with the Like Box. Did Facebook change something within their plugins?

I think, you should replace ".fb_iframe_widget" with ".fb-like-box" because there is a conflict with Facebook Like button. The button disappears! ;)

.fb-like-box, .fb-like-box span, .fb-like-box span iframe[style] {
width: 100% !important;

Thank you. It is working fine in my Twitter Boostrap project.

It works great in it self. I just seam to fight with the profile image inside the streams They really squeeze the text of the streams so the flexible width gets challenged in medium sized devices.

Do any one know if it would be possible to leave out the profile image in the stream?

Also having the same iPad issue... same thing happens on my Samsung Galaxy (android).

jamesxv7 commented Feb 18, 2014

For the iPad issue, since the properties you want to modify are inside the iframe, there is no way to achieve a fully reponsive fix because the CSS does not work cross domain.

They have now added:

id="feedback_xxxxxx" style="width: 470px;"

In the iFrame, so this solution is not enough anymore...
