To add the application to your Facebook Page, find your 15-digit app ID/API key at the top of the App page and then follow these steps:

  1. Type the following URL in your browser window, using your app ID and replacing YOUR_APP_ID with the 15-digit app ID/API key:

    You’re taken to the site where you add your app to your Page.

  2. From the Add This Application To drop-down menu, choose the Page where you want to add your app.

  3. Click the Add “App Name button.


Now your iFrame app is added as a custom tab to your Page. You can navigate to your page and change the position of your tab just as you would any tab.
