App Alternatives For Adding A Review Tab To Facebook
No one can deny the incredible power of adding user generated social reviews to your marketing!
Adding a Fan Review style tab to Facebook can let you leverage the power of your existing loyal community to more quickly build additional community!
Some apps can even cause the review to be shared on the wall of the reviewer and thus contribute to viral growth!
How cool is that?!

Fan Review Apps For Facebook
Before we dive in, I should note that this is one of several Facebook app segments that lack any quality apps in the free department. There are a couple of very very rough free apps but they are honestly not worth mentioning at this time. Hopefully this is an area that will improve next year.
So, I present you with three different premium apps of different types and pricing to help you find a Facebook review app that meets your needs.
Social Reviews Plus
Social Reviews Plus was one of the first to the enter the market with a useful fan reviews app. They are priced very competitively, with no monthly fee. However, it’s worth nothing that the app has no deep FB integration. This is a “win” in that reviewers need not approve the app before posting but also a “loss” because the reviews are not posted to the wall of the reviewer and viral traction is not possible. This app is in “finished” development and I think it is unlikely it will be improved in the future.
Fan Reviews Engine
The super-awesome and best-in-class fan review app, without a doubt, is Fan Reviews Engine, by the SmashIt Social team! This app does everything you’d expect and MORE! Not only does it strongly generate viral activity but it even goes so far as to have a “widget” that you can display on your blog! Best in class however comes with a hefty price tag.
WP Social Reviews
If you already have a site set up to handle SSL based iframes for custom FB apps, then you might have a look at “WP Social Reviews”. I have not tested this app as I only recently discovered it. However, due to it’s competitive pricing and ability to be have different scores for your different products, it may be the perfect solution for some businesses. I wouldn’t do this without SSL however.
