Facebook QR Code with Deep Link

Facebook QR Code with deep link

If you want to create a QR Code that links to your Facebook page you can copy the URL from the address bar of your browser and paste the URL in a QR Code Generator.

When scanning the QR Code this link will open the Facebook Page in your browser. But what if you have also installed the Facebook App on your Smartphone? Wouldn’t it be cool if the QR Code deep links your fans directly in the App instead of the browser?

This can be done easily using Facebook’s internal QR Code function.

Just go to your company’s page and click on Edit Page Info. Scroll down a bit and you will see the QR Code.
