2 Free Third-Party Apps That You Can Install On Your Facebook Page
Facebook page apps are what allow you (and others who visit your Facebook page) to view your posts, videos, and other such content on your page. More than viewing the related media content, though, these apps are arranged as tabs on the left sidebar of your Facebook page – mainly in order to organize your content. By default, a Facebook page generally has four standard [Facebook-developed] apps: Photos, Events, Videos, and Likes.
The Photos tab showcases all the photos your page has either been tagged in or uploaded directly (i.e., photos or images that have not been shared via other pages or timelines). The Events tab presents all the past, present, and upcoming events you’ve set up on your page. The Videos tab shows your video library (i.e., videos you’ve uploaded directly to your page or created via Facebook tools on your page; it does not include shared videos). And the Likes tab, of course, lists the likes on your Facebook page.
These are the standard Facebook apps. And most other third-party apps that you can install on Facebook usually cost a fee. However, there are two free third-party apps that you can install on your Facebook page to liven it up: ShortStack and Static HTML – Thunderpenny:
ShortStack is a Facebook app that will allow you to add widgets on your page in layers (i.e., on top of each other). Or else, you can use the templates and themes available with this app to create something of your own. However, do note that it’s only free if you have fewer than 2000 fans on your Facebook page.
2) Static HTML
Thunderpenny is a free Facebook app that will allow you to either upload a single image or pull a website onto your page. (Just note that, if the website is larger than the 810 pixel size that this app allows, scroll bars will appear as well.)
