With all the recent buzz surrounding Facebook’s Timeline rollout, it’s good time to tell you about a feature we launched recently.

Pagemodo is now giving Facebook users the chance to quickly and easily customize their own Like Gate using a custom image. Like Gates have always been a popular way to entice your visitors into becoming your fans: visitors that wish to see the content beneath the Like Gate have to become a fan before they can see your content.

Previously, the Like Gate feature allowed you to place a black overlay on top of a custom Facebook tab, and it let you customize a marketing message that would intrigue your visitor into liking your page to gain access to your tab’s content. read more
