You can use our iframe signup option and the Facebook application, Static HTML: iframe tabs, to add an Emma signup form to your Facebook business or fan page. Here's how:

+ After you've customized your signup form, visit the main Audience page and scroll to the bottom to the Your signup forms section. Click the menu button to the right of the signup form's name and select Add this to your site.

+ A modal will pop up with all of the methods for publishing your signup form. Copy the iframe option, then head over to Facebook.

+ Using Facebook's search bar, search for Static HTML: iframe tabs. Then, click Go to App. On the next screen, click Add Static HTML: iframe tabs.

+ You'll need to be logged in as yourself and not as your business or fan page. If you're logged in as yourself, you're taken to a page to click Add Static HTML to a Page. If logged in as another page, you'll click Visit App Page, then click Go to App. You'll be able to choose which page of yours to add the application to.

+ Click Add Static HTML: frame tabs. View the tabs (such as photos, maps, etc.) to find what you just added. Click the green Edit Tabs button.

+ Paste your iframe code in the index.html box box, and click the green Preview tab button to preview your form or the blue save & publish button to push the signup form live. Then click Done editing tab.

+ Go back to your page, view the newly created signup form tab, click the pencil icon, select Edit Settings and give your tab a custom name. Click Save, then Okay. You can also add a tab image here.

The steps to embed your signup form to it's own tab in Facebook can definitely sound a little tricky. If you'd rather bypass using the iframe application on Facebook, another option is to simply post a link to your signup form on your Facebook timeline. To post the link, copy the 'Link to It' URL in the list of add-to-site options. Post that link directly on your wall.

Hope this helps! If you run into trouble along the way with these steps, please let us know.

Hi there, Compass Records!

Thank you so much for reporting that the instructions are out of date. I hopped over to the Resource Center link and confirmed that many of the steps need slight tweaks to match new language and interface in Facebook. I've alerted my colleague that manages all of our online resources, and I'll be working with him to get the updates made.

I'll circle back here with a heads up as soon as we've got the updated documentation live. Thanks again!
