A Content Box is an HTML field. The most common use is to add widgets from other social media. The only constraint is that the Content Box must fit into either the Sidebar (300px width) or Main Column.
Creating content boxes is simple and easy. To create a Content Box, go to your Profile and click Style Your Profile. Once there, click on the Content Boxes tab.
From here you will need to give your content box a name and paste in the HTML you want to include in the box. In this example, you can get the Company Insider Plugin from LinkedIn by looking up a company name and copying the HTML code.
Paste the HTML into the main text field. In this case, select "right column" and then click "Add/Edit".
Once it has been successfully added, it should look like this:
Now you have created a Content Box, and it shows up in the list of Content Boxes below. You can click "Edit" to Edit it at any time. However, this Content Box isn't visible on your profile yet. You need to add it to your page as a Module.
Click on the Modules tab to get the above. Notice how your new Content Box shows up below Main Column as a Module you can add. Click "+" to add it. Then you can drag and drop it into place, and click Save.
Now when you view your profile, you will see your fancy new Content Box!
Please note for RSS widgets: If you are adding in an RSS feed as a Content Box, make sure to add the feed's URL into square brackets
