Like Box strange behavior.

Hi guys,

I'm having a bit of trouble with the Like Box plugin and maybe you know the solution.

I went today to the facebook developer page (http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/), selected the Like Box plugin and then enter the URL of Pat Flynn's business called smart passive income (http://www.facebook.com/smartpassiveincome) and it worked, I got the iframe code for the plugin to put on my Wordpress blog but if I entered Pat's personal page (http://www.facebook.com/patflynn) instead of his business, it didn't work.

So I thought that the Like Box was only for businesses and not for people but then I replaced "patflynn" with "madonna" (http://www.facebook.com/madonna) and then "shakira" and it worked!

Any clues where the bug can come from?

Could Facebook let you use their like box plugin only if you are a celebrity with 1000s of friends and not for those with less than 100 friends?
