To read part 2 then click this link "Design Welcome Page For your Facebook Fan Page"

Custom-Facebook-tabThis is part one of our tutorial series on "How to create a Welcome WebPage on Facebook". To add branded look to your Fan Pages you need a custom tab so that you could then design the tab to blend your website theme. A tab is basically a link that will appear under the wall and info tabs. On clicking the tab your visitors or fans will be able to see the content inside that tab page.

Click the Save Changes button. Congratulations you just created a tab successfully! Now just few more steps.

3. Add your Custom Tab App to your Fan/Like Page

Copy your API key and App Secret code and keep them safe in a notepad as we will be needing them later. Now click the Application Profile Page link.
Next click the Add to My Page link to install the page tab
Finally select the page you would like to install the tab on.

4. Visit Your Facebook Custom Tab Page

You will now find the custom tab appearing under the wall and info tabs. Click your Tab. When you visit the tab page for the first time, you will be asked to enter your API Key and APP Secret. Simply fill up the blanks with the App number codes you saved  in a notepad.
