How to Create Facebook Forms

Update: For the most recent instructions on Facebook Forms, please see Add Form to Facebook document on our User Guide.

Adding forms on your Facebook pages is very easy using JotForm. Using JotForm’s drag and drop form builder tool, you can create a form in minutes and plug it on a Facebook page.

Facebook, with its 500 million users, is now probably largest marketplace in the world. Businesses rush to create their fan pages. I was reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s “Crush It” last weekend. He recommends Facebook to all entrepreneurs as a great place to build their personal brands.

Facebook recently allowed adding forms to Facebook pages using FBML (Facebook Markup Language) so we took advantage of that and made necessary adjustments to make JotForm code work on FBML pages. Unfortunately, FBML does not allow everything, so some features like Conditions and Validations are not available on Facebook Forms, but you can still create basic forms.
