How To Remove The Contest Tab From Your Facebook Page

If your contest is over and you no longer need the tab on your Page, this tutorial will show you how to remove the tab.

The new Facebook interface is still buggy and incomplete when it comes to managing tabs and so you need to switch to the classic (old) version of Facebook. To do so, navigate to facebook.com and click the little triangle icon in the top right corner of your screen. From the dropdown menu, select the option "Temporarily Switch to Classic Facebook".
