Golf Bag Warehouse: Facebook Contest / Fangate (Mobile Ready)

Apr 12th, 2013

Although “Fangating” officially lost a lot of its value with facebook’s introduction of Timeline in 2011, the functionality still exists and you can still use it to your advantage.

The Mobile Dilemma

facebook error mobile versionWhile you cannot set a “Default Landing Tab” anymore, you can still link to and access any of your page’s tabs directly – unless you are trying to do it within facebook’s mobile app. Facebook’s mobile app still throws an error message when you’re trying to access a non-default tab.

Naturally, we didn’t want that to happen to any of golfbagwarehouse’s potential contest entries, and therefore created a mobile fallback version for users who are trying to access the app from within facebook’s mobile app.
