    Here is a snippet from https://developers.facebook.com/docs/pages/tabs.

    The Page Tabs feature is only available to Pages with 2000 or more fans, or pages managed by whitelisted apps.

    So, if your Page has less than 2000 fans, it is not possible to add Custom Tab.

    Is there a work around for this or to get your forms to be embedded on a facebook page? or linked?

    You can try adding the form using Iframe holder applications (like Static HTML: iframe tabs) for Facebook but the same restrictions apply to them as well so it will unlikely to work.

    You can add the form to a tab on your Facebook page only if your page has at least 2000 likes.

    I'm confused by this. I was able to add a tab to my FB page for my Spring Registration, but I am no longer able to add a tab for my Summer Registration? My number  of likes has not changed. It was under 2000 when I was able to add a tab for Spring. Did this change happen recently?

    Yes, this is a recent change by Facebook. Your page needs to have at least 2000 likes to be able to add a Custom Tab.
