How to Create Custom Apps for Your Facebook Page

Not too long ago I started a Facebook Page for my blog. While I've personally been on Facebook for several years I don't have much experience with creating or managing Facebook pages as a business or blog. Facebook pages are standard templates and at first glance don't seem to offer much opportunity for customization, but there are several ways to customize your Facebook page outside of the profile image and page image. One way is to add customized app tabs to your page.

There are multiple apps you can choose from. They are available via third-parties and you can point them to your social profiles. The ones I selected for my page are
  • Instagram from InstaTab
  • Pinterest from Pin Tab
  • Twitter from Woobox
While WooBox also has apps for Instagram and Pinterest I preferred the way InstaTab and Pin Tab display on on my Facebook Page.

After adding the apps I decided to customize the icon images so they integrated with my blog's look and feel. Here's how you can create custom app images using PicMonkey.

1. Go to PicMonkey and select Design to create an image

2. Choose your Canvas Color
  • I used three colors from my blog color palette. One color for each social app
3. Add your desired text
  • You can customize the font type, size, color and placement of the text
  • I selected a font and color from my blog color palette

5. Download the image to your computer

6. On your Facebook page go to Settings
  • If you already have the apps on your page select apps in the left side bar
7. Select Edit Settings


8. Select Change
