How to add Facebook application to your page tab

Posted By: KP On January 9, 2011 Under Internet Categories

You can add your Facebook application to your page tab, this will make more users for your applications but the main benefit will be promotion of your page. You can have a custom landing page for your page by adding a beautifully created application and that will lead for increased likes.

Application side preparation:

Your application should be coded such a way that it has only allowed FBML tags. Facebook restricts some tabs to be used inside Facebook. e.g. fb:like , fb:login. You will get an invalid tag error when you will add it as a tab.

Open Facebook developer page, edit your application settings.

In your application under “Facebook Integration” fill up “Page Tabs” info as guided below.facebook-page-tab

Tab Name: Tab name you want to see on page.

Tab URL: This the URL of your server folder. Index file under the folder will get loaded as tab when tab will be clicked. This folder must be a sub folder of your application folder.

Edit URL: You can leave this field empty.

Save changes.

Page Side Settings:

Visit your application profile URL and click add to page.

On your application profile click add to page from left side (below profile picture)

Press “Add to Page” for your desired page.

Visit your page, Edit page from left panel. Under apps tab, for the application click “Edit Settings” for desired application.

Click add to tab.

    These instructions are no longer relevant because Facebook changes their site layout too much. Still no idea how to add my app as a tab.
