How to Find Apps for Your Facebook Business Page

By John Haydon

When searching for an app, you need go no further than Facebook itself. Search Facebook, peruse Facebook Groups, or search Appbistro. Here’s how easy it is to search Facebook for an application and add it to your Page:

  1. Type the name of the application in the Facebook search bar at the top of your screen.

    If you don’t have a specific application in mind, simply search for the type of application you’re looking for. For example, type video to search for video applications.

    A list of potential matches appears. After you find the application, click on the application name in the search results and go to the application profile page.

  2. From the application Page, click Add to my Page.

  3. Confirm any additional authorizations required for the app.

    Each application has a different process.

Also look for apps in the following locations:

  • Facebook Marketing group: A few active groups on Facebook are aimed specifically at marketers seeking to understand how to use Facebook Pages. One group that is helpful is Facebook Marketing. You can use the group’s search function to search for conversations about useful Facebook Page applications.

  • Appbistro: This website is an online marketplace for Facebook Page applications. The applications are rated and reviewed by app users and the Appbistro staff. The site includes previews and installation instructions. Some of these apps are free, and some are paid.
