How to Make a Countdown and Post It to Facebook

Countdown clocks allow you to share the number of days and hours until the birth of a new baby, wedding, sporting event, birthday or any special occasion. You can install a countdown clock on your Facebook page by installing the countdown clock app offered on the Facebook website. The app allows you to customize the color, time, date and type of event that you wish to display. The countdown clock can then be added to your wall, fan page or even a friend's wall.
