I've noticed that Facebook like box for a page (social plugin) is blank when I am logged into Facebook as a page that I am admin.

This happens for my page and for other sites.

When I am logged into Facebook as myself, i.e. a regular user, the Facebook like box is displayed normally. When I am not logged in, again, the page is displayed normally.

I have raised this as a bug with Facebook themselves, but is it? Is there a workaround or adjustment I need to make.

I am using standard Like Box IFrame code from Facebook themselves.

I believe that this could be regarded (by Facebook) as a feature, rather than a bug.

I can't find it now, but am certain that I've seen a reference to it in Facebook's documentation, with a comment that the "fix" it to switch back to using FB as yourself instead of as a page.
