What happens when a visitor clicks on your page tab?

You can decide if you want to create content in Facebook itself (i.e. write up something using HTML), or Redirect users to a specific URL, or pull in content from a specific URL (which will be inserted in an iFrame and so visitor does not have to leave your Facebook page), or insert an Image.

To set up content for your Woobox Facebook Page Tab, go to Woobox admin >> Edit and then choose the content type for your Page Tab
