Facebook timeline has settled into the hearts and minds of many – but businesses are still wondering how to enhance their pages. Today we take a look at ten of the most popular Facebook applications that are 100% compatible with timeline, to effectively enhance your social presence on the internet.

#2: Scribd For Portfolio Sites

If you need to impress your fans with images, slideshow presentations, PDF’s, documents and other portfolio items, use the Scribd app for Facebook. Your fans will love it.

#3: Google Maps

If you run a brick and mortar business, and rely on a lot of ‘walk-in’ traffic – make it easy for your fans to find your shop by including the ‘Google Maps’ app in your timeline.

#4: Involver RSS For Pages

Have you been looking for a good blog app? Use RSS for Pages, and your fans will be able to read your blog directly from your Facebook tab.

#5: The Pinterest App

If you’re a huge Pinterest fan, then add your Pinterest profile to your business page. Your fans will be able to see all of your great marketing-orientated images.

#6: The Contact Tab

The Contact Tab Demo Company provides a great contact form interface, which includes all of your contact info, maps, social icons, URLS and more – all in one place. It’s great!

#7: Youtube Video App

If you have a Youtube feed, then your feed needs to be on Facebook. The good news is that your video is much larger than it used to be, across the entire page.

#8: Twitter App

A Twitter app on your Facebook page is a must-have, to give your Facebook fans some quick and juicy info from your business. Just remember, don’t link your Twitter and FB accounts!

#9: FAQ App

If you’re a law firm, accountant or web designer – your business needs a FAQ section. Add this app to your Facebook timeline, so that fans can have easy access to your details.

#10: Customize

Get a Facebook app built that will compliment your business presence. For example, if your main goal is to sell your ‘ebooks’ then get an app built that does this for you.

Each of these 10 app suggestions will improve your social presence in the eyes of your fans. When you take the time to build a great timeline profile, it will pay off! Facebook has become more and more like a social ‘website’ for your business – so take advantage of it!

It’s a great idea to look into having your own custom apps created. Nearly all of the professionals and large brands do it, because it enhances their user-experience. When your users are happy, you’ll get more interaction out of your page, and that means more business!

Which apps on this list have you found the most useful and why? I’d like to hear how your business benefits from this list.

    The Fan Page Forum App looks great for engagment.  Were you referring to a specific app for FAQ's?  There is no link there and I haven't been able to find one that looks great.


    Thanks for the great info

    All of these apps seem like they will be very useful but I really like the fan page forum app. I think this will make communication with our team much easier to follow rather than having to jump around from group to group.

    Also, the FAQ app will provide quick refference for my new team members to find answers to common questions.

    Thanks for the Great post John!
