- Twitter App – This app automatically re-posts your tweets in your Facebook Page status. A big time-saver, but a potential bother to your connections if you use Twitter a lot, or if you tweet about topics that aren’t related to your Page.
- Selective Tweets – This app allows to you to selectively post a status update on your Facebook Page from Twitter simply by adding the hashtag #fb.
- Facebook Notes – Allows you to create formatted text with images, links to a post or add an RSS feed from your blog. Set it and forget it!
- Blog RSS Feed Reader – This a bit more robust than the Notes app. You can add an image for your feed, add multiple feeds and even send out alerts to friends of new updates.
- Flash Player – This app allows you to upload Flash videos or games to your Page, which can create a highly customized experience for your fans.
- Static FBML – This app allows you to add certain types of HTML within a custom tab that can be named to match your brand.
- Extended Info – This app works much like the Static FBML application but is slightly easier to use. You can add lists, images, videos and other pre-formatted sections to a custom tab.
- Fundrazr – This app makes it easy for your supporters to fund-raise for your cause. You can sell tickets to events, communicate to members and event track results with an analytics feature. They also have a great relationship with PayPal.
- Giving Impact – This is a donation engine that you can integrate into your existing website, but they also have a Facebook Page app that looks extremely robust. Nonprofits would also be wise to investigate their Giving Impact Grant program.
- MyFlickr – Display your Flickr photos on Facebook so that your connections can view them, comment on them, and tag them without leaving your Facebook Page.
- YouTube Video Box – This app is pretty straightforward. Search for videos, add them to a custom tab and share them easily on with your connections.
- Poll Daddy Polls – An easy way to increase engagement and understand your fan base is with simple polls (yes / no, three choices). This app also has a sharing element to it: As soon as users vote, they are given a choice to share their vote with their friends.
- The Wall – The most powerful Facebook Page app out there.
There are also many more Facebook Page applications for nonprofits at App Bistro, a marketplace of Facebook tab applications.
