How to Make Your Custom Facebook Page the Default Landing Tab


I am frequently asked how to make a custom Facebook tab the default landing tab and realized that I haven’t written this up before. And, the location to do this has recently changed, so if I had written an article before, it would need to be revised. You do know that when writing about Facebook, it really should be done in pencil. ;-)

Set the Default Landing Tab

  1. From the fan page for to Edit Page
  2. Go to Manage Permissions
  3. Under the Default Landing Tab dropdown box, set the tab that you would like to be the default tab.

Keep in mind that the default landing tab is only for new visitors to your page. Once someone likes the page and becomes a fan, they will be taken straight to the wall. This can not be changed.

Also as the Admin of the page you will be taken straight to the wall as well. If you want to test that a new visitor is going to the default tab, log out of Facebook and visit your page.

That’s all there is to it. The way it works hasn’t changed but Facebook has moved the settings around.
