Top 15 Facebook Apps for Fan Engagement & Building Communtity
Fan of the week for pages - Your fans like to be recognized. This application keeps track of participation on your Facebook page and then automatically posts a "shout out" to your fan of the week.
Go to your search bar and type in: 'fan of the week for pages' Note: The app will automatically post to your page wall at the same time every week. Make sure you add the app to your page at the exact time you would like it to post. For example if you add it at 10am Monday, then it will post the fan of the week every Monday @ 10am.
Booshaka - another application that will highlight the fans who are participating on your page more often. When you install the application, a custom tab called Top Fans is added to your page.
Fans get the most points for posting to your wall and they also receive points for comments and likes. You can view the stats of each fan listed to see how they have participated. The app gives a complete history of the fan's activity on your page.
To download booshaka go to booshaka.com or type it into the Facebook search bar.
NetworkedBlogs -Even though it's always best for engagement and EdgeRank purposes to post manually on Facebook, sometimes a little automation can be helpful. NetworkedBlogs is an application that automatically posts your new blog posts to your Facebook wall. You can use it to post to your personal profile, your Facebook page and Twitter accounts.
The application will pull in the title of the blog post, the first picture in the post (or a screen shot of your entire blog if there isn't a picture) and the first few lines of the post. When someone clicks on the post, there are Share buttons at the top of the post to allow readers to easily share it with their networks.
The setup and navigation of NetworkedBlogs a little challenging, but there are help files. The easiest way to add NetworkedBlogs to your fan page is by going to http://www.facebook.com/networkedblogs and clicking on the Add to My Page link on the left sidebar.
Post Planner - Sometimes you need to schedule your posts to your Facebook page. There are some scheduling tools such as SocialOomph, HootSuite or TweetDeck, but none has the capability to schedule posts with pictures or video. Post Planner can help with that.
The tool does have a monthy fee of around $5 to post to pages, but having some peace of mind that you won't forget to post at the perfect time can help. Always make sure you are engaging and checking back into the conversation.
Post Planner also has a White Label version so you can customize the app name and send people who click on it to your website instead of to an application.
YouTube - If you have a YouTube channel, I recommend integrating it into your Facebook page so that people who come to your page can easily access your videos. There are many YouTube applications, YouTube for Pages by Involver is a popular one. It's easy to install, the layout is nice and it offers easy sharing.
Your most recent video is automatically displayed as the largest. The application will not automatically post your newest video to the wall, but you can easily post it with just two clicks.
ContactMe - Make it easy for people to get in touch with you with a contact form on your Facebook page. With the ContactMe app, you can add many different fields and customize the form to suit your needs.
Scribd for Pages - Scribd is a document-sharing service that makes it easy to upload and share PDF, DOC, XLS, JPG and PPT files. People often want to be able to share a document with their Facebook community.
While you could upload the document to your website and share the link, the Scribd application allows people to easily view the document right in the tab and download it if they wish.
