How to Save Your Facebook Application Tabs

Facebook-Tabs-Going-Away1

[W]e are removing application tabs from user profiles.
Starting this Wednesday, users will no longer be able to add them.

The writing is on your Wall.

The Bad News. Your Facebook application tabs are going away Wednesday, November 3, 2010, due to low usage rates.  That includes tabs for games and services like ReverbNation, Friend’s O Mine, Etsy, etc.

The Good News. They can stay on pages. Facebook says it will continue supporting application tabs on Facebook Business Pages and Fan Pages. According to Facebook developer’s page, “We will, however, continue to support existing implementations of the older authentication mechanism as well as FBML on Page tabs and applications.”

Why? It’s all part of Facebook’s Road Map, a framework for the future direction of the Facebook Platform.

How You Can Save Your Tabs

    I was so mad when Facebook did this. If they want to keep it clean, why don’t they just take all those advertising off? I think it was a stupid move of them. Let’s see the consequences… Maybe they’ll find out that this was very important to the users, and maybe it will be too late…
