Facebook Changes To Fanpage – Act Quick


Many of you have already heard about this, but if you have not taken action it is time to.  As of March 10, 2011 Facebook is doing away with the FBML application.  The FBML application allows you to make custom landing pages or custom tags on your fanpage.

After March 10 Facebook is implementing Iframes, but here is the kicker….Facebook is not creating an iframe application like you now have for FBML, which means you have to create your own.  If you know how to create an iframe app great, but if you do not you will have to hire a service which usually has monthly fees.

Here is the good news; you still have time to add the FBML app to your Facebook fanpages.   According to Facebook if you install FBML application you are safe at least till the end of the year.  Then who knows what they will do.

So that is the dish as I know of it now.  I have a few fanpages that need the FBML app added, but I am really starting to debate on even bothering.  Yes it would be nice if Facebook will let you keep your FBML tabs, but that “end of the year” thing is a bit concerning.

Your thoughts or anything to add?

  1. Make sure you all copy the sourcecode of your FBML applications as you can often use this to build into a page on your site that you can iframe perhaps into Facebook Fanpage.

  2. Working with iframes in Facebook may not be such a bad thing after all. I had a hard time trying to get around the FBML limitations and it’s proprietary code. I wished I could just plug in a page I had made elsewhere. Hope it’s gonna be that simple 🙂
