Like gating has been one of the biggest motivations for page owners to install tabs on their Facebook pages for the last four years. There is no doubt about this. Like gating was simply the way to require participants into any type of contest or promotion run via an application to become a fan of the page before they could enter.

That was made possible by Facebook API that allows app developer to “read” Facebook’s information about the participant and see if that person was a fan of the concerned page or not.
