    Guys,

    I finally took the plunge in playing with facebook pages...

    I have a really stupid question that I just can't seem to figure out..

    On the left side of any facebook page there is an "about" section..

    How the hell can I enter a link in there???

    I am editing the page through the admin --> basic information..

    There is a tab called about:

    In there is the text and/or URL that you can put... I tried many different syntax but NON turned into a live link...

    I see other pages with live links... why can't I create one???
    Is there a limit per fans or something??

    If anyone can help me.. This shit is killing me.. :)

    I know it is something so simple and stupid that I a missing..

    Help..

    Click Edit Page, and change the type to web site, or a product, and a new field will be added in About section to add your Link :)

    What are other pages with live links in the 'About' section? It looks like this section is text only.

    I think you are correct... for some reason even the ones that I saw awhile ago that had live links... no more. :-(

    That sucks... Facebook is really all about keeping everyone within their platform.. :)

    Not only facebook, many others are trying to prevent users go outside, like myspace or vkontakte. They usually write that they do it to prevent phishing attacks,etc.
