Oh Happy Day! You can now change the titles on third Party Tab Apps to be more Descriptive!
Here is what you had to live with before:
Extremely short (16 character) Tab Descriptions were very limiting. Sure, shorter is better but sometimes you just need to say more. Facebook has now revised Page Tabs for Third Party Apps ONLY (not Facebooks own Wall, Photo, Video, Discussion, Notes Tabs) such that you have 100 characters to utilize! You can do a lot of explaining in 100 characters. Here’s the new result for the Facebook page of Still Blonde after all these YEARS!
See how my Welcome Page went from “Welcome” to “Welcome to the Blondeness”, See how my networked blogs tab went from “Blog” to “Still Blonde after all these YEARS Blog” and see how “Shows” (which sounded pretty skanky to me before) now says “Facebook Meetups” and do want to know the best part? I could now easily change that to “Facebook Meetup is at 9:45 EST Tonight”. Great advertising right? Also helps with confusion when people want to come to your page to find something! Come to my Facebook page, “Like” me, and take a look! (How did you like that shameless plug?)

Stopping by to Stumble (I’m a little tardy I know :))
Have a great weekend!
Stumbled you. My post is booksyourkidswilllove.blogspot.com/2011/06/stick-dog-wants-hamburger.html
Wow that’s good news. I don’t actually use my FB account in promoting my site. But I guess I need to… I will like your page as soon as I post this comment.
Stumbled here, my post is lifeascending.info/attract-success-through-qoutes/
Stumbled! Good info – although mine are just the standard. I’m not sure what I would do with any of the tabs!
Thanks for the heads up!
Btw, I stumbled this! Please stumble Only Happy When It Rains back.

Good info to know! I’ve yet to add any custom tabs, but when I do, I’ll know how to change the names. 🙂

I did. Thanks again to you and Brian. You solved a niggling little issue that I had had for a very long time! The Chief Blonde!
Which 3rd party app did you use that let you do that?

So I just went in and added more to mine. I did not know we had more “letters’ thanks so much!

Definitely! As soon as I figure out how…
I’m a little behind the times, as I hadn’t even realized you could customize the tabs on your business page.
