40+ Apps & Tools To Customize Your Facebook Pages

40+ Apps & Tools To Customize Your Facebook Pages
Facebook now has over 800 million active users around the world. If it were a country, it would be the third largest in the world (right behind China and India), and more than twice the size of the United States. So it’s pretty much vital for anyone trying to promote a product, service, event, or cause to create a Facebook page. While other social networks (Google+ among them) are making gains, Facebook is still the largest and most popular out there, and that’s unlikely to change in the immediate future (and besides, Google+ doesn’t even allow brand pages yet). One of the biggest mistakes brands make when creating Facebook pages is to just use the default tabs and default content. The answer to this common problem is to make use of all the custom content applications and tabs available for Facebook pages. In this guide, we’ll show you some of the best apps for Facebook pages and how to best use them. More related posts: Customizable Tabs First Impression Welcome Tab TabMaker Social Candy Owjo

Facebook: A fistful of dollars IT ALL began as a lark. Mark Zuckerberg posted pictures of his fellow Harvard students online to let viewers comment on who was hot and who was not. Eight years later, Facebook is one of the hottest companies in the world. Not necessarily. As more people join Facebook, its appeal grows. With a little help from my friends A $100 billion price tag would hardly be cheap, but other tech giants are worth more: Google's market capitalisation is $190 billion, Microsoft's $250 billion and Apple's $425 billion. First, Facebook knows a staggering amount about its users. Second, Facebook is the most powerful platform for social marketing. Finally, Facebook is becoming the world's de facto online passport. That is the case for Facebullishness. Google has made the jump from popularity to profitability. What Rockefeller was to oil... This is where the other set of worries emerges—and these should concern more than just investors. Further down the line there is antitrust.

Facebook’s IPO will create over 1,000 millionaires Facebook is planning an initial public offering (IPO) for next year, meaning the company will go public in Q1 2012, Q2 2012, or even later, depending on which rumor and sources you want to believe. Assuming the social networking giant raises the expected $10 billion or so, giving it a valuation of around $100 billion (give or take a few pennies), it will create more than 1,000 new millionaires. Reuters interviewed a few Facebook employees to find out what they were planning to do with their riches. Zuckerberg has frequently stated, both publicly and privately, that he is against the idea of rushing the company into an IPO. Some whispers say he wants to wait until next September or later in order to keep employees focused on product developments. Facebook doesn't need to push for an IPO because it really doesn't need the money right now.

Facebook et ses millions d'amis valent-ils vraiment 100 milliards ? Plus de 100 milliards de dollars ! C'est la valorisation espérée par Facebook lors de sa prochaine introduction en Bourse selon le « Wall Street Journal », la plus attendue dans la Silicon Valley depuis celle de Google en 2004. Un record pour une société Internet créée il y a sept ans, tout comme les 10 milliards de dollars que Facebook souhaite lever à l'occasion de cette opération qui pourrait avoir lieu « entre avril et juin 2012 ». Pour mémoire, Google n'avait levé que 1,6 milliard. Seules 13 sociétés dans le monde ont jusqu'à présent récolté plus de 10 milliards de dollars lors de leur entrée en Bourse, dont trois américaines (Visa, General Motors et AT&T). Cent milliards, c'est presque autant qu'Intel et deux fois plus que Hewlett-Packard, le géant informatique aux 324.000 salariés quand Facebook n'en compte qu'un peu plus de 3.000.

Arabic to overtake English as Facebook's biggest Middle East language Facebook use in the Arab countries is growing as such a rate that within a year, Arabic will overtake English to become the most popular Facebook language in the region, the Jerusalem Post reports. The Arabic Facebook interface launched in 2009, growing to 10 million users within two years. As it stands, these users represent around a third of all Facebook users in the Arab world, with studies suggesting that two times as many people frequently use Facebook in the Middle East and North Africa rather than buy a daily newspaper. Middle Eastern PR agency Spot On PR commissioned the study, indicating that Facebook’s Arabic interface has grown 175% a year, double the rate of the social network’s growth worldwide. The agency includes some interesting statistics: The Arabic platform’s 10 million users make up about 35% of the region’s Facebook subscribers, up from 24% in May 2010.56% of Facebook users in Egypt (3.8 million) opt for the Arabic language version.

What is Your Facebook Welcome Tab Strategy? If you read information on best practices for Facebook business pages, the creation of a custom welcome tab is usually one of the first things mentioned. A welcome tab is a special tab created to greet new visitors to your page. Welcome tabs are usually set as the default tab for people that have not Liked your page; meaning new visitors are automatically taken to the welcome tab rather than your Wall. Once someone Likes your page, the next time they visit, they are taken to your Wall. Welcome new visitors to the page Explain what your company does and the value it provides Offer reasons why someone should Like your page Invite visitors to Like your page How you incorporate these elements is up to you, but the key is to keep it simple. Unfortunately, many welcome tabs fail to use this simple approach.

Risk Reduction Strategies on Facebook Sometimes, when I’m in the field, I find teens who have strategies for managing their online presence that are odd at first blush but make complete sense when you understand the context in which they operate. These teens use innovative approaches to leverage the technology to meet personal goals. Let me explain two that caught my attention this week. Mikalah uses Facebook but when she goes to log out, she deactivates her Facebook account. Mikalah is not trying to get rid of her data or piss of her friends. Shamika doesn’t deactivate her Facebook profile but she does delete every wall message, status update, and Like shortly after it’s posted. I asked Shamika why she bothered with Facebook in the first place, given that she sent over 1200 text messages a day. Both of these girls live in high-risk situations.

The Social Network’s Screenplay Writer Quits Facebook [Headlines] This article titled “The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin quits Facebook” was written by Catherine Shoard, for on Wednesday 22nd June 2011 16.34 UTC Aaron Sorkin, who won an Oscar in February for his screenplay for Facebook drama The Social Network, has quit Facebook, it was revealed today. Sorkin, 50, was speaking at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity at a session alongside David Simon, creator of The Wire and Treme. “I have a lot of opinions on social media that make me sound like a grumpy old man sitting on the porch yelling at kids,” he said. The Social Network chronicled the ascent of Mark Zuckerberg, who created the website while studying at Harvard, then battled two lawsuits from aggrieved former colleagues. Sorkin’s scepticism of social media was shared by the film’s star, Jesse Eisenberg, who joined Facebook under a false name while in production but left soon afterwards, unnerved by the experience. © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010

Many of the changes will provide brands an opportunity to interact on Facebook in ways that were previously unavailable. For example, with brands now having their own identity on the site, it opens doors for business owners to interact as the brand itself, not just a representative of the brand.
