I just got an email from the team at Involver (one of my favorite App Sites for Facebook) Facebook is ding away with FBML based tabs. Anyone currently using tabs that are based on FBML are OK. Don’t Fret! You will not lose all of your information, but you will no longer be able to add tabs that support FBML.
Here’s the email I received- Hope it helps!
On March 10th (Thursday), Facebook is deprecating its popular FBML application, which is how many users added custom content to their Facebook Pages in the past.
To help brands cope with this change, Involver has launched our new Static HTML For Pages application, which allows users to customize their Facebook tab with either an image or static HTML code in a few quick steps.The Static HTML app from Involver is the simplest way to customize your Page,
and it’s free to use!
If you’re using FBML now, or just want to add new content in the new Facebook iFrame environment, Involver’s Static HTML app is a great way to incorporate your HTML images and designs to Facebook without any hosting or investment. Here are some great ways to use this new application:
• Add a customized image on your Facebook fan page
• Render static HTML code, within the framework of Facebook’s current guidelines
• Customize your tab name
• “Fan gate” your page, requiring users to Like your page in order to see other contentInstalling is simple, just like any other Involver application. Visit our application gallery to install the Static HTML application (or more than 10 other apps) in less than 60 seconds.
Involver powers more applications on Facebook than any other company (over 250,000 apps are hosted on the Involver Platform), and is better equipped than anyone to handle massive scale and rapidly changing requirements. This means you never have to worry about your application being inaccessible.
