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 html/website built which you want to show as a tab in Facebook and needs to be securely hosted using SSL
(if you don’t have this, please check out our platform that allows you to do that http://www.sosl.com.au)
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)
Now you have the information head over to our Tools section
On the main url on this page , Select Tools > Add Tab to Facebook Timeline
Enter your app id on the first box
Enter your Site URL on the second Box
It will come up with a link to visit to add the page to your fan page
It will then ask you which page to add the tab to. Select the page and click on Add Page Tab to complete.
