PRDA, your total social media provider, is helping increase business with the use of apps for Facebook Pages. These are an extension of the Facebook platform where you can install third-party applications (apps) to increase interactivity. Four are always displayed under your cover image, and you can utilize up to 14 custom apps total.
Get the most out of your social media presence by using apps to link all your social media profiles together. You can link your Facebook to Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and many others. You can also link your blog to Facebook with the RSS app so fans can view the feeds in the same window. There are apps that load a functioning storefront on your Facebook page, allowing fans to buy your products without having to leave Facebook. You can also load offers and promotions, further enticing the client to buy your product/service. There are apps for polling, discussion boards, checking-in, and even apps that allow you to share presentations. If you want it on your timeline… there’s an app for that!
Carry your branding to the apps section to help users remember and recognize you in the future. Replacing basic app photos with custom thumbnails is important because apps have a prime real estate spot right under the cover photo, to the right of your profile photo. You can replace any app thumbnail with a custom photo as long as it is 111 x 74 pixels. You can also reorder the placement of these thumbnails. Put the important ones first to ensure they are seen.
