How to Put a Contact Form on Your Facebook Page

Posted on January 01, 2014

Facebook has taken the world by storm. For sure, you are now fully hooked in it's web. The great thing about Facebook is that it has many different uses. From a business perspective, one of the helpful features you could add to your Facebook account page is a contact form. This way, you could solicit formal contact information from people within and outside your network. Here are the ways on how you could put a contact form in your Facebook page. First, add a static FBML application. FBML is the network's markup language, which is similar to HTML. It would allow you to customize the functionality and features of your Facebook page, applications, fan pages, and games. Installing this application is quite easy.

Second, create your Facebook opt-in tab. Click the 'edit page' tab in your Facebook page. Locate the FBML in the list of applications and use the pencil icon to start editing. Designate an appropriate tab name like 'Contact Form.' Your form code should be pasted there. Third, add new tab to page navigation.

You should make your new tab visible if it still does not appear on the drop down tab. The contact form by this time should already be included in your Boxes tab. Otherwise, go back to Edit Page, click FBML settings, and then choose application settings to remove and re-install the new tab. Lastly, test the newly added feature. The new contact form should appear in your Facebook page or fan page. Your friends or other people in the network should see and access the feature whenever they visit your page profile or fan page. A contact form is the start. Use your Facebook page for your business to it's full potential, and you will gain some great new business.
