    I've been making changes to one of my FB pages this morning, and seem to have lost my "Default Landing Tab" option under Manage Permissions.

    I still have the option on my other pages. Has anybody experienced this before?

    I've logged in and out, tried changing wall tab between all posts and only posts by page.

    Is the tab pointing to an App? Perhaps the App was disabled. I think some types of pages don't have this option.

    So far, the page has pointed to the wall, and I have not made any changes to it. I'd like to point it to an app. I'm fairly certain I've seen the option on this particular page before, but can't say 100%.

    The page is categorized as Websites & Blogs >> Society/Culture

    Maybe it asked you to confirm the type of page, and you changed it to Websites and Blogs from some other page type that allowed Default Tab Configurations?

    That's not the issue. I played around with the categorization of this page, and still have the same issue.

    I also played around with a new page that I created in the same category, and I have the option with the new page.

    After doing a little more research, it looks like FB has removed this option for older pages, until they reach 10K fans for some odd reason. I believe it can also be fixed by working with an Ads account manager.

    This makes sense, as I created this page as a group years ago when they first rolled out groups, and then converted to a page later.
