How to Add a “Reviews” Tab on Your Fan Page

****Please see the updated post by clicking here! ****

At this time of year, I spend a lot of time shopping online for gifts. One of the very first things that I do when I’m looking at a potential gift for one of my children or a family member is to check the reviews and ratings of a product. I also do the same thing when I’m searching for a service. Do you know that on your Facebook Fan Page, you can offer your clients and customers a place to add reviews of your products or services? Here is how! (click on the screen shots to enlarge.)

Log into your Facebook account and go to your Fan Page. The first thing you need to see is if the “Reviews” tab is already installed and hidden on the tabs bar.  The first place you want to check is under the tab that looks like this “>>”. Once you click on it there will be a list of tabs that are at the end of the tab bar. If  “Reviews” is there, go ahead and click on it and drag it to where you want it to appear on the tabs bar.

If it’s not there, then you should check to see if it’s installed but not active in your tabs. To do this, click on the tab that looks like this: “+.” This will display applications that are installed but not in use. If you see “Reviews” listed, go ahead and click on it and drag it to where you want it to appear on the tabs bar. If it’s not there, no worries! It’s just time to add the application!

First step is to click on “Edit Page” on your Fan Page which is on the left side under you business logo or your profile picture.

This takes you to the administrator page that manages your Fan Page. Here you want to scroll all the way down to “More Applications.” Click on “Browse More.” Remember this step because this is a super easy way to add more applications to your Fan Page in the future.

Once you are on the “Browse More Applications” page, enter “Reviews” into the search box. Once the search is complete, there will be more then one choice, make sure you choose: “Reviews by Facebook.”

This will take you to the application page.   Anytime you are adding an application to your Fan Page, you want to make sure you are clicking “Add to My Page.”  After you complete this step, you need to go back to your administrator page of your Fan Page and scroll down until you find the “Reviews” box.

Once you find the “Reviews” box, click on “Application Settings.” This is another important step to remember when it comes to adding applications to your Facebook personal page and your Fan Page. If you miss this step, many times you will not see you application. Once the box pops up, make sure “Boxes” and “Tab” shows as “Added.” (You can do this by clicking on the words “add”).

Almost done! Now, you need to scroll up, click on “View Page” and go back to your Fan Page. Once on this page click on t “+” tab and find “Reviews.” Click on “Reviews” and drag it over to where you want it to show up on your tab bar.

I hope you found this post helpful! I think it’s very important to show potential clients and customers honest reviews on your products and services. If you have any questions regarding how to do this, feel free to email me at rbuscemi@creativevirtualoffice.net

Happy Holidays!

    Rebecca,

    Thanks Rebecca, I’m so glad I found your site. You saved me hours of frustration!!!
    I appreciate the help.

    Thanks Rebecca. I’ve just added it to my fan page but i can’t see any link to submit review. The reviews tab only shows “There are no reviews” and the Boxes tab shows “Displaying reviews – see all links only”. Can you suggest how do i add ‘write a review’ link to it?

  11. Hi! As the administrator of the site, Facebook does not allow you personally to add reviews. If you are a visitor looking at your fan page though, they would be able to leave a review for you. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Hello! I have found several sites like yours describing the instructions for adding the reviews tab to a business’s facebook fan page. The only blunder I seem to have is there isn’t a choice to “add to my page” only “add to my page’s favorites.” When I click on the second choice, it doesn’t install the application, only puts a box of my favorite pages. How do I get the screen to offer me the “add to my page?”

  13. Hey Kim:

    I’m actually going to re-do this post this weekend. Facebook made changes after I posted it! Thank you for visiting my blog!

  14. After spending over an hour searching the internet trying to find out how to add a Review tab to my facebook fan page, I finally came across your resource.

    You explained each step simply and I had no problems in adding my Review tab. I just wished I had discovered you over an hour ago :)

    Thank you very much for you help.

  16. Megan says:

    This was very informative and I get right to the end…. but then its just a thumbnail that shows when you click reviews…. :(

  17. Thanks for this tip.. Works gr8 :-)

  18. Thank you so much for this!! I couldn’t figure out how to add a review tab to the Redmond Equine FB page, but I was able to follow along with your advice and it worked like a charm!
    Thanks so much!

    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for posting these instructions. I see someone above had this problem.. it seems I’ve installed the Reviews tab, but then it just shows that there are no reviews to display. When I log out (or go to another computer), and view my page as a visitor, it says the same thing and doesn’t allow reviews to be posted. Any thoughts on how to fix this?
    Thanks for the wonderful info.

    Hello. I have tried every way to add a reviews tab and I can’t figure it out. I have no tab on the strip to see more apps. When I try to edit the page, and click on the apps. I have nothing that will let me add more apps or browse more apps. I’m so frustrated!
