    Hi! I currently use High Impact Designer for my tabs. Can you tell me if they are FBML? (worried!)

  • Hi Vanessa. I am not really familiar with High Impact. The vast majority of 3rd party platforms are not using FBML for their tab tools so it is unlikely they are. I would suggest you contact their support.

  • I would add that FBML tabs are mostly still on pages where the user was a do-it-yourselfer and was not using a 3rd party platform tool. 3rd Party platforms like TabSite that make it easy to build tabs all changed to iframe based tab apps about a year ago. The FBML end impacts those that just never got around to switching when Facebook changed to i-frame tab apps.

    Hi Mike, you say June 6 in your headline, but then June 1st through the rest of your article. Confused.

    • Hi Rich! Aim for June 1 for all your changeover and then you are sure to be covered comletely. I’ve seen both dates in Facebook information so as long as you aim for June 1 you are all good!

    • Meant “completely”

    Hi MIke,
    Today I install FBML o my fan page ExpoCritica, and it doesn’t work. Now I’m reading your post and I don’t know how to uninstall it.
    And at the same time I need a add to put the google analytics code…
    Please help me!

      Hi. yes, Facebook doesn’t allow FBML apps on Pages. Go to the tabs on Facebook, click the arrow on the right below the cover image to “view all” and in the 111×74 image of your tab you can hover in the top right of it and get a drop down menu to “delete” from the page.
