PS: My 8 years experiance on developing AddOns for vBulletin™ (my portfolio has 35+ such addons), guarantees that if not now, some day in the near future, faceforo will becomes the most powerful forum for facebook™.

    Important Notification

    Here are some important information regarding Faceforo to avoid possible misunderstandings:

    • Faceforo is a Forum script which works only in Facebook as Page Tab Application. Even if the data are on your own webspace, the forum is not accessible by your domain name.
    • Does not works in Facebook groups. Works only in Facebook Pages.
    • Only Facebook users can access and use your Forum.
    • Unlike some other companies who are offering Forum services for your fan page without giving you the ability to access your data, with Faceforo you own the data and thus you have full access to them.
