Important notes:

– You can only embed one form with JotForm Tab per Facebook Page.

– Make sure your Facebook Page has at least 2000 likes. According to Facebook, “To ensure tabs lead to high-quality, accurate content, the Page Tabs feature is only available to Pages with 2000 or more likes.”

– Facebook Tabs won’t work on mobile. Facebook hasn’t deployed this functionality yet. It should work as intended if you view it on a desktop.
