Facebook Pages Update
Facebook’s Pages have been given “major improvements,” according to the company. In response to some Facebook users looking for ways to improve ways to keep up with activities on their page, the company has made a few updates:
- You can choose to receive notifications about fan activity
- Navigate and interact with other areas of Facebook as your Page
- Facebook now offers the option to set up featured page owners that appear as profiles on the right hand side of the page.
- You can now “like” and comment on other Pages as your Page. Before you were limited to commenting with your personal profile. This should help expand brand recognition for your business.
- Get a News Feed where you can engage with the latest and most important news from other Pages you like.
- Your latest photos will now be displayed along the top of your Page
Facebook has also just introduced new opportunities for Pages to share information. A new Profile design gives users more ways to tell their stories. You can now feature photos of your Page’s most recent experiences at the top of your Page. You can also highlight other Pages you are connected with and the people who are managing your Page.
Now for what seems to be the most controversial change.
Facebook just announced new features to make your Page “even more engaging for users.” When you use the “Everyone” filter on your Wall, you will see “the most interesting posts first.” Users are also able to discover which friends have similar interests to your Page.
While some people may applaud this move, thinking that it will be useful for page owners who may be concerned that the most important announcements they make are quickly lost in the stream shuffle of updates, there is a growing wave of protest. Sure, there is some validity to the relevancy update, but there is concern by many that this creates confusion with updates being out of chronological order.
So now, people who are in agreement with the protests, can “like” the Page titled “Bring Back Chronological Posts On Pages.” In a savvy diplomatic move, the Page’s administrator “liked” Mark Zuckerberg.
If you haven’t already, you can upgrade your page now by visiting your page while you’re logged in with your facebook profile that is a registered administrator.
