    the page you mentioned is using fbml.
    if you are already using fbml and have a customzied tab, all you need to do is:add this line "      "so i have attached it in the image also . in case of diqus comment does not display the tag properly.

    this tag is deprecated.

    From facebook :

    "This tag is deprecated. And since feed.publishActionOfUser has been deprecated as well, this tag is no longer necessary.

    June 23, 2009: This tag has been deleted, so it no longer works as either an FBML tag or an XFBML tag. "

    but it still works.

    And personally, I believe that you do not need customized tab unless you have a brand, or current campaign.
    first thing I will see on a page is posts on the wall, so I can decide the page is worth liking, I know my name already.
