About ShortStack

ShortStack is a powerful, flexible toolbox for building any type of tab you can imagine for your Facebook Page. ShortStack is a great way to get your business on Facebook, without using FBML. ShortStack allows you to create custom facebook pages, tabs, and widgets to get users interacting.

ShortStack makes it ridiculously easy to build custom tabs for your clients fan pages.

ShortStack began as an idea to eliminate the tedious coding that it took to create a great looking tab for Facebook Pages. Instead of keeping ShortStack hidden from the public, the company decided to turn it into a tab builder that anyone could use.

With ShortStack it is easier and faster to create tabs that are visually appealing but on a budget that won’t hurt anyone’s wallet. It is also possible to further customize pages because ShortStack encourages users to employ their knowledge of CSS, HTML and IFrames to make pages even more unique.

ShortStack allows users to easily one-time publish their feeds (blog, Twitter, YouTube, etc) so that they won’t have to continually update their Facebook fan page every time they post something new on their blog or in Twitter.

ShortStack also offers a number of features that can drive increases in users becoming fans of pages and users visiting pages more often.

  • While not perfect, ShortStack is one of the best Facebook app creators out there. And while they have a few omissions, like the lack of an Etsy shop template, they make up for it in their support, number of features, and ease of use.

  • ShortStack is recommended to all who need to customize their Facebook pages and add various elements including feeds, images, contests and other apps. It is relatively easy to use, but does need familiarity with the tools and features to be able to get the most out of the application. Those who need to add elements to their Facebook page will find the Short Stack application quite useful.

  • ShortStack is one the most powerful tab creation services we reviewed, but its web interface is not initially intuitive. We like that it provides floating captions that describe the purpose of each of its features, but we would like to see the service add a get-started tutorial that provides a step-by-step overview of the basic processes. When we reviewed ShortStack, the service inspired us to think of ways we can customize the tools it offers to promote our own Facebook fan page.

    Shortstack is a great product. I've been using it for at least the last three years consistently for all of my clients' Facebook promotions. I'll admit, we don't use it as much as we did when like-gating was available, but there are other reasons to use it. However, it's not going to be an easy one to learn to use if you're not digital savvy already.

    Pros : - Works with Facebook and Instagram. You can run contests on Facebook to gather email addresses as entry, or photos, or other data. - Easy to ask for permission to add email address to your existing databases, in compliance with privacy laws (in Canada at least). - Very customizeable with templates and the ability to change out all colours & pictures to fit your brand. - Ability to copy a previously used promotion and simply update for next one, which is a great time saver. - Ability to have Instagram entries auto-populated based on brand hashtag. - Ability to import names for a Like & Comment contest on Facebook. - Built in random draw generator. - Ability to assign referral points for recruiting friends to promotion. - Ability to gate based on required information, such as an email, i.e. you can't have the ebook/coupon until you put in an email. - Ability to change CSS codes if you know how. - Customer service is pretty good online. - Ability to embed a promotion on your website. - Ability to limit who can see the entry form (on Facebook at least, by country).

    Cons : - Like & Comment import only imports from one post, so if you've collected comments on multiple posts, over a week, you have to import several times and consolidate into one database, at which point you can't use their random draw function, but have to resort to random.org. - I personally found it very overwhelming to learn to use. Almost every campaign I learn something new to do, so I've learned to use it bit by bit over three years to get pretty decent looking promotions, in conjunction with a graphic designer. - There have been glitches...my last promotion just disappeared one week before completion, after three weeks of no issues. They were able to help me get it back without any lost data, just a day or so of entries.
