If you are looking for solution to add Facebook application as page tab on your page this post is for you. Facebook removed “Add to My Page” link from application. It took me hours to find workaround on the issue. I hope this post will save your valuable time. This functionality now need to integrated in Facebook application itself in the form of link. However, if no link or installation button provided by application creator then you can easily add application to your page. I believe Facebook removed “Add to My Page” link to encourage application owner to provide installation button on application page.


You need facebook application ID and facebook application URL to add application on your page.

  1. Make sure your are login into facebook.
  2. Prepare “Add Page Tab” dialog url below. Replace YOUR_APP_ID with application id and YOUR_URL with application profile url. Application profile url look like this. https://apps.facebook.com/digitaltipstalk/

    Dialog URL: https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=YOUR_APP_ID&next=YOUR_URL

  3. Copy url in browser address bar and go. Facebook new add to page tab dialog will prompt to add application to fan page.
  4. Select fan page from the page list then click on “Add Page Tab” button to complete the process.
  5. All done.
