HOW TO: Add Twitter and YouTube Tabs to Your Organization’s Facebook Page
Involver is a new start-up that has some pretty amazing Apps that you can add to your organization’s Facebook Page. Your first two Apps are free to install and if you want to later upgrade they do offer nonprofit and multi-account discounts. I recently added the Twitter and YouTube Apps to the Nonprofit Organizations Facebook Page. The Apps allow you to then create Twitter” and “YouTube” Tabs on your Facebook Page that pull in and nicely display all your Tweets and videos from Twitter and YouTube.
HOW TO: Add a Twitter Tab
Make sure you are logged into Facebook and designated as an Admin for your organization’s Facebook Page. Go to the App Gallery. Click the Facebook Install button for Twitter. It will ask you to choose which Facebook Page you want to install the App. Select your page and then click the “Add Twitter for Pages” button. You will then be prompted to enter your name, email address, phone number, and Twitter User Name. All four fields are required.
Click “Save & Continue” and then “Continue to Fan Page”. The final step is to click “+ Add a new tab” on your Facebook Page, then Select “Twitter”. The Twitter Tab will automatically appear. You can then drag and drop your Tabs in the order you think it most important for your Facebook Strategy. Keep in mind that the default settings are that the “Wall” Tab is first, the “Info” Tab is second. [See the Involver Twitter App live]
HOW TO: Add a YouTube Tab
Simply repeat the steps above! You will not be prompted to enter your contact information again, however you will be asked to enter your YouTube User Name (www.youtube.com/username) and whether you want only your uploaded videos or your favorited video displayed, or both. That depends on how you use your YouTube channel. Most organizations would likely only want their uploaded videos displayed. [See the Involver YouTube App live]
