What you are looking for is something called a Fan Gate. A Facebook fan gate is also known as and often referred to as the reveal tab or welcome tab. Sound familiar? In fan pages for Facebook, the fan gate is the initial tab (or landing page) new visitors to your page land on. It’s not for returning fans, strictly for new visitors. Once they “Like” your ...

The option "Posting Preferences" no longer exists The chosen solution does not resolve the issue of posting as yourself on your page, but outlines how to switch your account to act on behalf of your page on Facebook.

Not possible again as posting preference in options were removed. This is now possible. No this is not possible. This how the admin setup works, you are basically taking up the PR role of the page so the face should be the brand. Pages are for organizations, businesses, celebrities, and bands to broadcast great information in an official, public ...

Getting the name is not enough for your apps. You'll end up at http://apps.facebook.com/<yourappname> You can get the alias (http://www.facebook.com/<yourapp>) only if enough people "like" it (I think the minimum is 25 people). Works the same way for FB pages, I think.

HootSuite is a social media dashboard app that, among other functionality, lets you schedule Facebook (and Twitter) updates to be posted at times you set within the app. It should do what you want. This functionality is included in the free version for up to 5 Facebook profiles - if you want more than 5 profiles you'll need to upgrade to one of their paid ...

The tab that you linked to is a custom Facebook application developed specifically for Coca-Cola. You can learn how to create your own Facebook application here (see the Profile Tabs section), but there are several existing applications that you can use if you don't need anything very special. For example the Static FBML application allows you to create a ...

What you are thinking of doing is not possible. The only move possible is a business account converted to a personal account (this is not reversible). A personal account is to be used by an individual only though. What you can try to do is email support@facebook.com and see if they will allow you to create a business account (since you already created ...

Try https://www.facebook.com/notes.php?id=[YOUR_PAGE_ID] Or type Notes at the top then search on the left for your Page. Or go to your Page and click "Use Facebook as [PAGE NAME]" then click Notes If none of these work then I would contact support.

When you uncheck Always comment and post on your page as MyPage anything you post on the Page is visible only to some of your friends and people who are visiting the Page profile (i.e. it's not published to the News Feed of the Page's subscribers). Thus, such posts aren't "status" updates. If you want to publish an actual status update to the Page's ...

I was just researching this exact same question for a client. I work primarily with authors and speakers, and this question comes up a lot. Here are the key things to note. When you migrate a profile to a page: you do lose the old profile. You have to create a new profile for your personal use. But if the idea is to clean up the profile, starting with a ...

The "continue reading" is not placed there by the person. If the content of a post is too large, facebook will automatically minimize it, place the "continue reading" link at the end, and of course, link it to the whole posting. The link actually brings up the post not the page itself.

I solved it by finding a way to find (!!) the actual ID of the page. It mostly involved searching the page code for ".php?id=" and filtering out manually the links to other profiles. Then the above method should work fine. I didn't want to install an extension just for this, though, so I made a little javascript snippet that makes the relevant fields ...

They do allow capitals. If you have more than 100 fans then you cannot change it. If you are talking about the username, the same thing applies. Once you have selected a username, you cannot change it. As it says, it sounds like you hit a filter that prevents fake pages from being made. Your only option from this point on is to wait for a reply from ...

There is no pre-baked solution yet to embed a Facebook wall in a website as far as I know. I am researching the same issue. It seems possible by using Graph API. I found this blog post detailing the steps to do it. The first step is getting a permanent access_token, which is best explained in Facebook Docs - Google "facebook api authentication" to find it ...

Yes, it is perfectly possible, and appropriate to create pages on behalf of an organisation (or brand or product for that matter). It's very rare that a client will be able to manage their online presence, especially if they are none-technical : that's the reason why they employ marketing agencies after all. Create the page via ...

Some sites try to Clickjack facebook likes (see, e.g., new facebook clickjacking attack) by hiding the like action behind an innocent-looking button. Blocking scripts (NoScript on Firefox, NotScript on Chrome) can prevent some of these attacks.

One post is a photo wall post as seen with the Facebook user > Astrophotography Contest Deep Space & Planet The other is a photo tag with other users that may or may not be invited to the event. I am guessing the users who are tagged have privacy settings that affect it.

If the fan page is built on his name then it comes under the category of "Artist, band or public figure"; therefor you can't expect people who joined the page for him to be in it for another person, because they are his fans not the new guy fans. Personally I'd feel offended if somebody did something like that to me "it is like breaking a contract", and ...

You don't need an application just to create a page. Just click Create a Page and fill in the information. If you want the URL of your page you can copy it from the URL bar of your browser when you are on your page. (If it contains a ? then omit everything from the ? to the end.) If you want a custom username for your page, click Edit Page, then Basic ...
