Last year I wrote about how you could restrict content on a custom Facebook tab so that only people who had liked or become a fan of the page could view the content.
Content on a custom Facebook tab can also be restricted by age, location, content type, and the owner of a particular Facebook profile.
fb:18-plus – restricts content to users who are 18 or older
<fb:18-plus>18 or older<fb:else>Sesame Street</fb:else></fb:18-plus>
fb:21-plus – restricts to users who are 21 or older
<fb:21-plus>21 or older<fb:else>Sesame Street</fb:else></fb:21-plus>
Location, Age, and Type
fb:restricted-to – restrict by age, location, and type
age – an age range can be used or a +/- can be used after the age to designate that age or older/younger. For example:
<fb:restricted-to age=”17-”>Let’s talk about Twilight.
<fb:else>Cool, the kids are gone!</fb:else>
<fb:restricted-to age=”65+”>Let’s talk about retirement.
<fb:else>Cool, the seniors are gone!</fb:else>
<fb:restricted-to age=”18-35″>Let’s talk about our careers.
<fb:else>Content for everyone</fb:else>
location – Restrict the content to certain countries. The countries are specified in a comma separated list using the ISO 3166 alpha 2 code list.
<fb:restricted-to location=”aq”>Special content for Antarctica.
<fb:else>You’re not from Antartica</fb:else>
type – the only type that can currently be restricted is alcohol.
<fb:restricted-to location=”us” type=”alcohol”>Enjoy some wine.
<fb:else>Enjoy some water.</fb:else>
Content for Page Admin
fb:visible-to-owner – this restricts content so it can only be viewed by an Admin of the page.
