Therefore, instead of mixing fans from different sites to one personal Facebook profile, we can separate them up into groups based on interest.
So, it would be easy for us to build relationship and post something which will only suit our Facebook fan’s interest and needs.

Due to the flexibility that Facebook offers through the development of applications, we can expand our Facebook fan page towards different kind of directions. For this post, I will guide you how you can use one of its application i.e Facebook Static FBML to build a landing page for your Facebook fan page.
For those who never use this application, this application will let you to bring html element into your Facebook fan page. Therefore, you can put in images, forms and links into the fan page which is the important elements of good landing page.
By having landing page, you can easily ‘influence’ your readers to subscribe your blog or newsletters, promote the best sections of your WordPress blog and promote them to join you in other social networking sites such as Twitter.
With this tutorial, I am going to show you how can you let the landing page to appear first instead of the fan page’s wall when someone comes from your fan page’s link. To give you rough overview, image below is my landing page for my latest project – Kissing Crust’s fan page.
The steps are…
Actually the steps that you have to take to create landing page for your Facebook is simple. You just need to follow below steps.
First, after you have formed your Facebook page, you have to go to its “Edit Page” section to install the Facebook Static FBML application.
Then, you have to go straight to the end of the page and you will find ‘More applications’ section which will recommend to you application that you will probably interested with. Usually, there will be Facebook Static FBML application.
Then, click on it.
You will be directed to the application page. At the side of the application’s page, you have to click on the ‘Add to my Page’ to install the Facebook Static FBML application into your fan page.
After you have installed the application, you need to edit the application and put in your html code for your landing page. You can find the edit link in the ‘Edit Page” section.
For me, for the image that I put in the FBML page I designed using free open source editing software – GIMP and then, I uploaded them into my WordPress’s blog.
For the arrangement, I simply use table function in the ‘Add new post’ page. In case you don’t have the table function, you probably have not install TinyMCE Advanced plugin in your WordPress blog.
After you satisfy with its arrangement and design, you just need to simply copy the html and paste it into the FBML box.
After you have decided the name and saved the changes that you have made in the Static FBML page, you need to head to ‘Edit Page’ section again but for the last time. Click on the Wall settings and change the ‘View Settings’ for ‘Default Landing Tab for Everyone Else’.
There will a drop down menu that lists all of your Facebook fan page’s tabs. You have to select the tab that have the name of your Static FBML page that you named earlier on.
By selecting that page, the Static FBML page will be the first that appears in your Facebook Fan Page instead of your wall.
And now, you have your own landing page for your WordPress blog’s fan Page. The steps are easy and straight forward right?
