If you have your own Facebook Fan Page, one way to get your Fans to promote your page is to ask them to place a Fan Badge on their website or blog

If you are an admin, the best way to show your fans how to put a Fan Badge on their site is to do this yourself first and then educate your Fans by showing them exactly how to do it too. You could make a quick camtasia video and post it on your fan page or direct them to this article. Better still copy the link from the widget you create and post it on your Fan Page. http://www.facebook.com/facebook-widgets/fanbadges.php?page_id=158064879912

Click on the “Promote with a Fan Box” link just below the Fan Page logo image on the left side of the page

  1. I have a question, but I was very confused about how and where to ask it on your site. I did not see any contact info or forum.
    Im curious to know if there are options for automatic monitoring of a Facebook fan, group, or personal page.
    Is the only option – manual review or approval of comments? Or is there something we can setup as the owner of the fan page – that can act automatically in some form? Like a keyword list (curse words and more) that causes that comment to be rejected or sent to someone for approval.
    If not now, do you see something like this available in the future?
    Thank you for your consideration.

    This would be a very good feature to have. Facebook do not supply proper analytics or fan page management tools. it would be great to be able to set up approval for comments posted on a fan page like you can on a blog. Maybe in the future this type of thing will be implemented

    I would like to insert a fan badge right into my facebook profile, but it only shows the code when I do.. any ideas? Thanks!

  4. iandavidchapman says:

    You can use the “profile html' application. Just drop the code into this application and it should display the badge on your profile

  8. Facebook fan page template that looks great without being overly busy. Your own personal style preferences and the kind of page you're developing are important considerations as well, but it's better overall to under-design in the beginning since you can always add more bells and whistles later.
