HOW TO: Add Twitter and YouTube Tabs to Your Organization’s Facebook Page

August 29, 2009

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]

Pretty amazing, eh? It takes less than 5 minutes and it’s free. If you want to learn more about how to transform your Facebook Page and strategy to the next level, I cover Involver and many other Facebook Apps, tools, and strategies in my Webinar, How Nonprofit Organizations Can Successfully Use Facebook and YouTube.

    Hi,

    I try to add YouTube for pages from Involver but it says I already have two of their applications. I try to remove them but it doesn’t work, especially with the new Facebook setup.

    Thanks for your help!

      Not sure. Sounds like you only get to use two downloads… even if you remove one. You might try and contact them. Good luck.

    Another app that can put your YouTube channel to a tab is Cueler YouTube. It can also detect new YouTube videos in your channel and publish them to facebook automatically. Check it our here http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=162891010412392&v=info or install it here http://www.facebook.com/add.php?api_key=5eeb66bdbeccd6a4f13baaf64d2fa059&pages
