Here are the things you will need

  • A new html page (the url has to be secure https://)
  • A Facebook developer account (any normal account can be used as a developer account)
  • A Facebook fanpage where you are the administrator of the page

There are 3 steps involved in adding a new html tab to your facebook page.

  • Create a new html page
  • Create an app in Facebook Developers
  • Connect the html page to your Facebook Fan Page

Step 1: Create a new HTML Page

You will need to create a new html page and upload it to a secure server. If you are on this page, I am assuming that you have already done that.  If you need a kickass platform that allows you to create these pages and run competitions please check our other platform SOSL.

Step 2: Create an app in Facebook Developers

2A: Registering yourself as a developer
