At the time of this writing, Facebook has yet to add page tabs/apps to the mobile version of Facebook Business Pages. What’s even worse is they recently revealed that 78% of US users are mobile! The good news is that most of the major page tab apps, including Landable, support mobile Facebook page tabs. The bad news is you have to get users to go to the shareable smart URL to enable the mobile versions. In this post I’m going to show you a simple trick to allow your visitors to access the mobile tab directly from your Facebook Page!
Get Your Shareable Page Tab URL
First thing you will need to do is find the shareable URL from your Page Tab tool. To learn how to do that in Landable, check out this post. Copy the share URL to your clipboard once you’ve found it. Now go to your Facebook page and click the Edit Page dropdown and click on Edit Settings.
Add the Mobile Facebook Page Tab Link
In the Page Info section, find the Long Description and click Edit. The Long Description is the text that gets displayed on the mobile version of your Facebook Page. So what we’re going to do is just put a link to our mobile friendly page tab here! On our page we use “View on Mobile:” and pasted the shareable link right after.
Now when mobile visitors come to your page, they can click the link in the description to load the mobile Facebook Page tab! To see it in action, just visit our page on your mobile phone. Here’s a preview:
