Facebook Pages (rather than personal profiles or Groups) are the best way for nonprofits to make the most of this incredible social networking site. (Here's an article that explains why.) Once you have a Facebook Page for your organization, there are few ways to steer fans and visitors to your givezooks! fundraising pages. Remember though, linking to fundraisers and asking 'fans' to donate should be part of a larger communication plan that is engaging and informative; just like with real friends, if all you do is ask for money, they won't be friends for long.
There are three steps to this process, the first step, you'll only have to do once, the second and third steps needs to be done for each tab you want to post.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Facebook is replacing the Static FBML App with iFrames, which offers many advantages. The process below describes installing the Static FBML app, which is no longer supported by Facebook and will no longer be supported by givezooks as of late August 2011.
To learn more about installing the iFrames App in Facebook, click here.
a. Search 'Static FBML' and select it.
b. Select 'add to my Page.'
c. Confirm that you want to add FBML to your Page and close.
d. Navigate back to your Organization's Page.
Now, FBML is installed on your organization page. Now, to add your event it to your page...
Prior to Step 2, you must complete Step 1 to get the FBML application on your page. If you don't have the Static FBML application, proceed to Step 1.
A. edit your organization page
B. Select 'Edit' under FBML
C. Copy the embed code from you from your givezooks! Facebook Widget page, name it (box title), and paste the embed code. Then 'Save Changes.'
The widget will initially default to your 'boxes' tab, but you can (and probably should) move it to either your wall or its own tab based on the size/type of widget.
You can drag and drop the tab to the left.
Finally, if you want to make your new Event Widget the default tab,you can select 'Edit Page' on your Fan Page and then change the 'Default Tab' on your Wall Settings. [ Note that when you are logged in as the admin of the page, you may see the wall, but when others come to the Page, the defaulted Event page will show, as in the picture below.
