Facebook provides various bits of html code that can be used on your website. Have a look there first. If 'status updates' are covered, copy the code and paste it into a html box and place it where ever you want it on your BV pages.

Facebook requires Users to be Logged in to view, post, or reply as the platform itself is modular and unable to communicate outside of the "site" itself.

You can, however, import RSS feeds and blog posts from outside of Facebook to automatically update your Profile page, but everything that is Facebook stays on Facebook.

Here are a few resources to help you network your Blog, if you have one and choose to do so:

Thanks for that guys, What I have ended up doing if any one else wants to try this is linking my facebook fan page with my twitter account and got an embeded code from twitter and put it in html box, that way when I update my fb status it goes to twitter then to my website. You can also change the style and dimensions looks really good!!

If anyone wants to have a look.

hahaha...You didn't say a 'Fan Page' in your original post. This doesn't require a user to be logged in to see 'status updates'. If they want to use the 'like' feature then Facebook will prompt them to log in.

I'm glad you've found a work around though.
