    Can anyone help me with how this fanpage has customized their Welcome Tab with the suggest to friends button.

    If you look for Jonathan Emile on Facebook and then look at his welcome tab you will see what I mean

    It's very easy, you have to use an FBML tag called : fb:request

    Follow this tutorial :
    Code:
    http://facebook-developer.net/2008/02/20/allow-your-users-to-invite-their-friends/
    but be sure to include Facebook Javascript SDK in your iframe:
    Code:
    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/javascript/
    and use this method FB.XFBML.parse if the invite form is not working :
    Code:
    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/javascript/FB.XFBML.parse/
    TIP :

    Use jQuery to execute :
    Code:
    FB.XFBML.parse();
    After the document is ready ;)

    Does this method get around the requirement that a person must be an Admin of a Fan Page to Suggest it to their Friends?

    I think the user has to be at-least a fan

    It's working ;)

    You have to create a Facebook application, and use an application page as your welcome tab ;)
