With growing popularity of Facebook.com and their 300 million active users, clients start to ask me for simple solutions on how to integrate their products or services in FaceBook.com fan pages. even if I’m not creating currently any apps for Facebook (just testing).
In this post I will give some useful links to some applications, how to integrate Your/clients products and services in FaceBook.com fan pages. What we will put on Fan page:

Setting Up Your FaceBook Fan Page
First of all we will need to create an FaceBook.com Fan page. Easy instruction on step-by-step basis. After all basic information is included. Based on Your needs, You have to make choice what for You will use Your fan page.Later it will be easier to add more applications.
With Static FBML it’s very easy to create new tab on fan page, filling with basic rich content (HTML, CSS, Flash). Since it’s extended HTML (It use FaceBook HTML features), You can event create some greeting text for users, based on their profile information. This is nice start where to include Your logo, product image, promotional or links to Your home page’s content pages.
After Static FBML it’s time to create Your own FaceBook application for Fan page.
Another great application is Simply RSS. If You have RSS feed from Your blog or news page, this will add them to page and Your profile. Simply paste Your RSS feeds in form and add them to page.
This is just start point while I’m working on my first FaceBook application.
