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.
Click on Apps > Register as Developer (if this is your first time)
A popup will come up asking if you agree to the Facebook Platform Policy (click on Yes)
Click on Next
Facebook will then ask for your mobile and send you a confirmation code before you can start
Once you are registered you can then start adding apps.
2B: Creating a new app
Once you are registered, click on Apps > Create a New App
Enter name of your App, a namespace (no spaces) and pick a category and click on Create App
Facebook will then give you captcha for security check, fill it up and click on submit. If the text is hard to figure out, click on Try another text or audio captcha.
Once your app is ready you’ll land on the dashboard. Here click on settings
On this page, click on Add Platform
A popup will show up – click on Page Tab
Enter the Details of the page tab as indentified in the orange areas
Name of Tab which shows up on Facebook Page Tab url (non secure url of your hosted page from step 1) Secure Page Tab Url (secure url of your hosted page) Page Tab Edit Url (you can use the page url here) Add a Page Tab Image (111 pixels wide by 74 pixels high)
Click on Save Changes when finished
Once you add the Page tab details, under Basic, please use the domain of your hosted page and click on Save Changes. The last step now is to add this to your Facebook fan page. To do this you need to copy your app ID and follow the steps below.
Step 3: Connect the html page to your Facebook Fan Page
What you need to set up your custom tab in Facebook Timeline
A facebook account

A large icon for your tab thumbnail (75 x 75 pixels or slightly smaller)
A small icon for your tab thumbnail (16 x 16 pixels)

User Photo Competitions on Facebook powered by Sosl.com.au
We have just enabled a user photo upload and voting plugin for Facebook powered by our own customised platform Sosl. This functionality will enable you to set up new photo competitions in Facebook and allow your fans to vote on them.
Here is how it works
All the users have to register before they can start posting pictures. They will set up a username and an email address (plus any other fields that you may need) before they can start posting.
Once registered, a user can click on upload photo and upload their photo.
Any photo that gets uploaded gets moderated by the admin before it becomes live on the platform.
Photo Voting Once a photo goes live, users can then start upvoting and downvoting photos.
