If you want to spruce up your page, there’s an app for that.

With the addition of the Facebook Subscribe button, understanding how your Facebook privacy works is more important than ever.
The good news is that Facebook is making it simpler to find the settings for controlling your privacy.
The bad news is that there’s a lot of confusion around the Subscribe button and what it means for privacy. So let’s start by tackling the privacy issues around the new Subscribe button.
#1: The Facebook Subscribe button
Facebook has made the subscribe setting opt-in instead of defaulted to on.

In this article I’ll reveal a number of applications that make it very easy to add functionality to your Facebook page.
Custom Tabs: What You Need to Know
You may have seen some Welcome pages on Facebook that encourage new visitors to Like the page. You may even be given an incentive such as a free report or, in Tim Ferriss’ case, a free chapter of his book. This is sometimes referred to as fan-gating, meaning only fans see special content.
