    Hey!

    Thanks for the article!

    We have some little problems here http://totalunegal.de/f-a-q/ with the box.

    Firstly, it is only showing 14-17 Fans (and always the same), when you are not logged in on Facebook.
    Secondly it is “showing” white space where faces of our Fans could be.
    Thirdly there is this little white quare below the box – is possible to remove it, at all?

    Thanks for helping!
