Please note: Your Wall is always be the default view for existing “Likers”; this is Facebook’s policy.

I was just thinking about this yesterday – you guys read my mind! This weekend I’m going to set up my Welcome Page. Thanks!
I had created a welcome page a month or so ago (when you told me to), but had not set it as my default. Duh! Thanks for the quick tip!
Yes! Thanks to you. 🙂 I had also made it my default.
Great articles – you’re on fire. So helpful. Keep going!
Great tutorial! I haven’t done a welcome landing page yet. Still undecided, but if I do, I’ll definitely know where to look for tips! What I want to know is why hasn’t the hubs “liked” your page yet. Just kidding. 😉
Thank you for this great explanation. I went back to my facebook page to make sure I had mine set up correctly.
I appreciated this post! You made it very simple. I still need to create a welcome page, but bookmarked this page for when I do!
Thank you for this! It was so easy to do!
Hi guys, i’m wondering why i in my “Manage Permision” section can’t choose landing tab. There’s no droplist to select one.
I’ve created an app in facebook developers wich get a html file to use a landing page. Everything looks fine, but i’m unable to select default tab.
This is the url of the fan page landing tab i need to setup.
Plese give me a hand on it.
thanks, a lot. Felipe from Chile.
There is not a default landing drop tab in my manage permissions… Am I looking in the wrong place? Thanks!
Unfortunately, Facebook discontinued this ability after it rolled out the Timeline. It’s a big bummer for all those fan page admins who directed non-fans through their welcome tab!
