|We've noticed there are quite a few "facebook page builder/sitebuilder" apps springing up... And wanted to issue a heads-up. Now as you know, I don't do Facebook and nor am I a techie, but I've had a few complaints about these so I set our techie team on a fact finding mission...
Couple of things they've flagged as being potential issues:
Do *not* use large bulks of text or completely copy your website on the Facebook page, Google views this as "duplicate content" and having the Facebook app could actually damage your SEO.
Ask whether or not you would have to set the app up in the developer platform for Facebook - doing this is tricky if you don't know what you're doing.
The most important part of your Facebook page is the top section - don't put banner images all the way across it - use juicy content to draw the users in!
Check whether the sitebuilder will update their sizes as Facebook changes its policies or iframe sizes - the ones we've looked at so far don't do this and your page will look awful any time these change - which they do, frequently!
Are they billing in $$? If so, why? Ask your other VA friends if they would use the app or who they use to programme their social media profiles.
