Metablocks Widgets – Facebook Tabs

Our Metablocks Widgets now support Facebook page integration. What this means is that your retail link landing page can no live on the web and on Facebook. In fact we have over 5 types of Facebook page formats we support, here are some of them. These Facebook pages also have “smart links” that support mobile users (so mobile users will get the correct verison of the page).

Type: Metablocks Widget Facebook Tab
The most basic type of Facebook page integration allows you to embed a widget or retail landing page as a tab on Facebook. You can check out an example here:

Type: Spotify Player Facebook Tab
Another popular page type is the Spotify player (Apple, Tidal and Deezer versions are also supported). If your widget has a Spotify URI associated, you can add it as a embedded Spotify player on your Facebook page. This unique player also links out to your Metablocks widget, plus it allows users to follow the artist or save the album directly from the Spotify player Facebook page tab. You can check out an example here:

Type: Widget Gallery Facebook Tab
On the Metablocks Widget platform, galleries are a convenient high level container used to group (and promote) widgets. We use them internally to showcase widgets (see examples) and many clients use them for the same reason. These galleries can easily be embedded on web pages or integrated using RSS and JSON feeds, but now, can also be added to a Facebook page as a tab. You can check out an example here:

Type: Raw HTML Facebook Tab
The Metablocks Widget platform support a unique concept of “datastores”. A datastore is simply a JSON, RSS, XML or HTML document that lives on our system, that users can use to provide information to Widget modules. For example, our quote module connects to a datastore where the actual quotes are stored as a JSON document. HTML can be stored on our platform in a datastore and you can connect that HTML document to any Facebook page tab.
