For those of you unaware of it, Tripadvisor has recently rolled out a new application for lodging. An app tab that integrates into your Facebook Fan/Business Page.
For once I actually like this offering from TA, the only downside a lodging facility would have in adding it, is if they get a bad review (it shows the last 4 consecutive reviews).
It says it’s customizable, it is, sort of, in that you can view or hide from view; the reviews (not sure why you would want to do this), the photos (again ditto) and the Certificates (again ditto).
*a note, make sure you are logged in as admin of your page, if you admin more than one page, make sure you select the appropriate one. The app is easily deleteable though if A. It gets posted on the wrong page or B. You no longer wish to have the app on your page.
**to delete an app, go to edit page, then manage permissions, then apps (on the left side) X out any apps you don’t want accessing the page.
To get to the section to add the app: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Owners
- Then go to: Management Center
- Then go to: Free marketing tools
- Then go to: Display your rating and reviews
- Then go to: TripAdvisor App for Facebook
- Connect to Facebook and Add it to your fan page
To see what the app looks like live: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Test-Page/301396262700?sk=app_254084314702229
Don’t Forget if you have multiple apps, you can move them around. (click on the arrow to the right for “all”, then click on the pencil at the top right of each app and switch with another selected app.
