This feature is part of the suite of Facebook integration options to engage your fans and potential customers. It creates a new "tile" in your Facebook business page wall, and is used for direct access to many of the features available on your website through the boomtime account
This is how it will look once installed, from the perspective of a Facebook Page Wall view (note the tile that says "Specials & GCs"):
Installing the Facebook Specials & GCs Application
Go to your Marketing Tab, click on Social Media in the Tasks list on the left and then click Facebook Settings on the task list to the left.
First, you'll turn on Facebook integration if it is not already configured. See our help topic on Facebook Integration for details.
Once configured, you'll see a page with four main sections: Facebook Settings, Facebook Insights, Welcome Tab, and so on. Look near the bottom for "Specials and GCs Tab":
Integrated/CMS account view:
Website account view:

Experts Only: Making Pages Look Purty
Let's say you've enabled a few pages that have some tabular photo spreads or some other kind of layout that looks a little wonky in the Facebook application. You can fix things so that it looks better, but you'd better be comfortable with CSS and editing your HTML directly. Otherwise our friendly Support folks will help - just get in touch with us!
What we're going to do is assign something called a CLASS to the parts of the page that are misbehaving, and then we'll tell that CLASS to behave better.
Our example problem is photos that you've put into a grid but now they're too wide on the Facebook app view.
