Customization options

In the Content tab of the X Design Element, you can see options that would let you customize how you want the X profile feed to look like on your page.

To add an X profile feed to your SharePoint page, you need to get its URL first:

The following set of options allows you to control the size and responsiveness of the Design Element:
