If you want a professional Facebook page, you need to create additional content beyond the standard wall, and maybe some kind of feed import.
In this post you’ll learn to add a custom tab to your Facebook page using static FBML, where you can add content in plain HTML.
Adding a custom tab on your Facebook page
A standard Facebook page typically contains a wall, where the page owner can publish stuff, and the audience can read and respond to the posts.
This simple concept has been very successfully so far, but there are more sophisticated possibilities in Facebook for you as a content owner to publish and create a media on Facebook.
Before you proceed, you should ensure, that you’re the administrator of the page that you want to upgrade
The easiest way to add a new tab with custom content to your Facebook page, is to use the application “Static FBML”.
To download the application, simply type “FBML” in the search field on top of any Facebook page, and click on the application “Static FBML”
Click the “Add to my page” link in the upper left side of the page.
If you’re administrating more than one page, a popup window is displayed, asking which of your pages you want to add the Static FBML application to.
Now the Static FBML application has been added to your page.
Create a static Tab
To add content and configure the Static FBML application, go to your page and click on “Edit page”.
In the application overview, find the “Static FBML” application in the list, and click on “Edit”.
You can now enter the desired name for the new tab in the field “Box title”, and the HTML for your custom page in the “FBML” field.
That’s it, when you click “”save” you now have a custom tab on your facebook page.
Adding a custom tab on your Facebook profile is a great way of adding a professional touch to your Facebook presence.
With the guide in this post, you can be up and running within 10 minutes.
With nice customized content, you might want to make this new page the default page on your facebook page?
