Wouldn't an iframe in a custom html module be your best bet?

1) Aside from the obvious security risks involved and the fact that they're not responsive, iFrames (when they work) just look plain horrible, horrible, horrible. Don't use them! Ever!

2) Unless you really want to display a whole Facebook "page" (in other words, something that displays everything you've ever posted plus contact details about your "friends") then embed a timeline/news feed. This does not require an extension. It's just a case of creating a custom module and writing a bit of javascript. See https://www.lifewire.com/use-facebook-p ... ed-2654605

3) If you want to waste your money, there are dozens of extensions you can purchase from here: https://extensions.joomla.org/tags/face ... tegration/

Agreed... I think showing a Facebook page inside a Joomla site is always going to look dodgy whatever way its done.

+1 on stripping out what you need using JS and being a tad more judicious.
