Timeline for Brands Fan Gate / Reveal Tab

By Rob McNair

*** UPDATE 6/3/2012- Facebook are aware of a bug that makes Fan Gates not refresh when a user clicks like. We’re tracking that bug and will let you know when its fixed.

*** UPDATE 8/3/2012 – Facebook has now rolled out it’s fix to Fan Gates meaning that all the functionality of this app is now back to normal.

We have updated our previous free fan gate application to new work with the new Facebook brand timelines that were launched this week.

If you want to add it to your Brand Timeline you can install it here.

As there is no default tab option for Facebook Pages any more, the best way to convert your visitors to fans would be to link people straight to the app tab. If you need to know your way around the Timeline for Brands layouts check out our post on the new features.

There is no real change to the functionality of the Fan Gate app other than the fact that you can now design some great wide fan gate Pages.

If you want us to feature your wide fan gate, drop us a link in the comments and we’ll get you featured on this page.
