Facebook made a recent announcement about changes to their page structure, and in specific the individual Pages (brand or fan pages).
The Facebook platform is evolving, and we knew changes were coming (iFrame use for FBML, for example). Now we know what to look for. The new changes will make Pages look more like the current profile pages – more integrated across the platform. Good!
The complete changeover will done by March 10, 2011.
Make sure to review these changes along with the Involver graphic example:
- Photo strip above the Wall (with the most recent photos you posted or tagged)
- Tabs move over to the left panel, in the form of a list (maximum of 6 above the fold)
- Profile picture reduced from 200 x 600 pixels to 180 x 540
- Blurb box that was below the Page picture moved to info tab
- Pages can Like other Pages, not just favorite them
- Featured Pages and Admins
- Page category
- Choice for Wall posts between “Everyone” and Page posts only
- Mutual Friends and Interests section
- ADDITIONAL ITEMS:
- Ability to interact on Facebook as your Page
