    Hi there,

    I am new here, so please bear with me... I have question on customization of FB fan page:

    I have read somewhere that FB page must be authenticated before enabling the ability to set up a landing page beyond Wall or Info tab. And to be eligible for authentication, a Page must have greater than 10k fans or the Page admin must work with their ads account manager. Does this rule still apply or we can straight away customize and create the landing page on fan page?

    Please help...:)

    You will have to authenticate your fan-page once it reaches a certain amount of fans (for example 10,000).

    You can authenticate your page by posting a link to a related website,blog, BUT you will also have to install the facebook-badge on your blog, to authenticate that you are the owner of the blog.

    The rumors you read about the landing page are wrong... I´m still able to create a FBML - Welcome/Landing Page on my pages, even if they are not authenticated.

    Thanks for the replies. So lemme summarize: I can create a Fan page, and customize my welcome page/landing page without any authentication( which may be required once I reach 10k fans). Am I right?

    Cheers
