How to Adjust Contest App Placement on Facebook

By Amy Porterfield, Phyllis Khare, Andrea Vahl

Your business’s Contest app may be installed in a place where the app is not visible to your fans and you will need to adjust the placement. Only the apps in the first three rows of apps are visible to your fans and if you have a lot of apps on your page, the contest app is installed at the bottom of your apps initially.

Ideally, it’s best to have the app appear in the top row of your tabs for the duration of your contest for maximum visibility. To edit the position of an app, follow these steps:

  1. Click the pencil icon in the top-right corner of the app (mouse over the app to see the pencil icon).

    A drop-down menu appears. If you don’t have the pencil icon, make sure that all the apps are displayed by clicking the down arrow on the right side of your apps.


  2. From the Swap Position With drop-down menu, choose the app to swap positions with your contest app.

    Choose one of the apps in the first three rows of apps and preferably one in the top row for maximum exposure.

    The Sweepstakes app swaps positions with the appropriate app.
