For all the fellow HTML geeks out there who want more customization on their Facebook page but still want to keep the clean, standard layout of Facebook (eg. no blinking backgrounds a la MySpace), I’ve discovered an application that lets you embed HTML code into a Facebook Page. The app is called Static FBML and can be used for embedding widgets, forms, and other HTML pieces of code onto your organization’s or website’s Facebook page.

Facebook - Search results Static FBML

An article by clearspring explains the step-by-step process to embed HTML. Steps 1-11 are for any HTML code; steps 12-15 are for embeding clearspring’s offered widgets into a Facebook Page.

While I haven’t experimented enough to know what code works and what doesn’t (i.e. if the urchin.js code Google Analytics provides will work), this is worth a shot to at least experiment with.

Have you used or tested the Static FBML Facebook application to embed or utilize HTML in your Page? If so, let us know how it works by commenting below.
