A Fan-gate is a combination of text and image that hides relevant and valuable information from a Facebook page visitor, until he/she Likes your page.
Fan-gates are an important tool in your quest to increase you Fan-base.
Fan-gates force the issue: Like my page or else!
(Or else you don’t get this free offer…for example)
Fan-gates are also known as Like-gates or Reveal-Tabs, fyi.
