Most of us have experienced testing our Facebook fan page via a mobile device only to discover that the Facebook mobile app only displays the Wall, Info and Photos sections. What about all our super awesome custom tabs?
Not to worry, now Pagemodo lets you and your visitors access your custom Facebook page tabs directly from a mobile phone!
Starting today, Pagemodo users can use special mobile-friendly links when promoting their Facebook page. What makes these URLs special? They automatically recognize the type of device being used to view your custom tabs. Visitors using a computer or laptop, will automatically be sent to Facebook’s web version of your custom tab. Mobile visitors, on the other hand, will see the mobile version of your custom tab. Smart!
This option is free and is available to all Pagemodo users.
How to Get Started:
- Sign into your Pagemodo account.
- Hover over the tab for which you wish to obtain a smart URL and click on the “Link to This Tab” option.
- Copy the address that shows up in the next window.

The mobile-friendly URLs can be used in various marketing promotions to help you gain more fans. Turn on your Like Gate and start collecting new fans. Or, post this special link on your Wall to ensure visitors see all your specials. You can even utilize this link to create custom QR codes.
Here’s an example of what a custom page with a Like Gate will look like:
Go the extra mile: Mobilize yourself!
There’s more: iPhone and Android users can even turn your custom tab into an app on their phone.
