Best Facebook Pages Source: – How Charities Are #FindingtheGood with Facebook Pages Best Use of Custom Applications Each tab on Facebook has a unique URL, so you can point users to different “pages” of your page, and determine what you want the default section to be for Fans and non-Fans. This is a feature that Susan G. Komen has employed to send users to their Boxes tab. It is clearly branded with their signature pink color and logo, while showing off several polished, professional looking applications.
  • 18. Best Facebook Pages Source: – How Charities Are #FindingtheGood with Facebook Pages Best Use of Simplicity Another major benefit to using Facebook pages is that they can often be executed faster and cheaper than a website. In order to get their $3 million charitable donation campaign up, running and attracting attention, Target used Facebook to allow users to vote on which charity they preferred. Target then divvied up the donations accordingly.
