Custom-Facebook-tabThis is part one of our tutorial series on "How to create a Welcome WebPage on Facebook". To add branded look to your Fan Pages you need a custom tab so that you could then design the tab to blend your website theme. A tab is basically a link that will appear under the wall and info tabs. On clicking the tab your visitors or fans will be able to see the content inside that tab page.

Finally select the page you would like to install the tab on.
