Leave a comment

Facebook has rolled out the Facebook pages timeline. The change was announced on February 29 with the preview option, and preview period is now over. All Facebook Pages upgraded to a new design on March 30.  

The new Facebook Pages design gives you the ability to:
  • Add a unique cover photo to the top of your Page
  • Star stories to make them bigger
  • Pin posts to the top of your Page
  • Add milestones to mark key events Arrange views and apps below your cover 
Let us see some of the new features or enhancements of the page:
 
Page Cover 
A cover is an image of max. size (851 by 315 px) at the top of your Page. This is available (public) to anyone visiting your Page. Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide – Check out more on Facebook Help Center
 
Highlight posts
You can highlight posts on your Page that you think are important. You need to Hover over a story on your Page's timeline and click "star" button near edit button. It makes the post/story bigger.
 
Pinned posts 
Pinned posts are the posts selected by admins to be displayed prominently at the top of the page. 
A pinned post always appears in the top left of a Page's timeline and has a flag in its top-right corner and will remain there for 7 days. After that, it’ll return to the date it was posted on the Page’s timeline. 
 
Admin Panel
Admin Panel helps you to
  • View notifications
  • Respond to messages
  • View your Page insights
  • Access your activity log to curate content on your Page
  • Access the Edit menu to make changes to your Page's settings
Timeline View options:
Highlights – this will display the timeline view of the page with highlights 
Friend activity – shows what their friends and people they subscribe to are saying about the page, their tags, activities on the page, etc.
Posts by Page – shows only the posts done by the page and not from others
 
Milestones 
Milestones are key moments you've decided to highlight on your Page. Milestone photos display at 843 pixels wide and 403 pixels tall. At this time, January 1, 1000 is the earliest date a milestone can have. 
 
Activity Log
Your Page's activity log is a tool that lets you review the history of your Page and change the settings of individual posts. Only Page admins can see the activity log. 
 
New Likes View
The Likes view shows people visiting your Page trends of people interacting with it over time. People will know if your restaurant is becoming the talk of the town or if your brand has a long history and loyal customer base.
 
Apps order
You can change the view and apps that appear on the your page just below the Cover image.
 
Apps Thumbnail
Changing the thumbail image for the Apps is now possible too.
 
Control over posts by others on your Page's timeline
You can choose not to show posts by others on your Page's timeline until you review them, not to allow others to post on your Page at all, and to turn off the Recent Posts by Others box on your Page's timeline.
 
Change is constant and progreesing along with it is the best possible solution.
 
We have got along with the change … Have you? Also post your comments on the new Facebook pages timeline change.
