A Facebook page can be a great way for a business to interact with current and prospective customers. You can use various applications to enhance your visitors' online experience. For example, you can add a Google Maps application tab so that your customers can easily locate you through your Facebook page. Add a Google Maps application tab to your Facebook page with just a few easy steps.

Go to the Google Map Tab page (link in Resources).

Select the Facebook page to which you want to add the application from the drop-down menu. Click "Add Google Map Tab."

Click on "Google Map Tab" from the list of apps, and you'll be redirected to a page where you can customize your map.

Click "Edit" to edit the location shown on the map, if desired. You can also add a welcome message for visitors who browse your page.

Enter your business address information under "Address Settings." You can add a message in the "Footer text" section, which may include your company's mission and office hours. Click "Save Content" when finished.

Press "F5" or click the "Refresh" button on your browser. Your customized Google Map should appear.


If you want your Google Map Tab to display in another location, click the "Pencil" icon at the top right of the tab and swap positions with another app.
