Screencast: Guide to Facebook’s new Page features
As you may have heard, Facebook just launched some brand-new features for Pages that can really enhance your image and your ability to interact with your network.
A few of the cosmetic changes are:
- Images front-and-center: At the top of your Page, the last five images you uploaded will appear. This is a great opportunity to share pictures of you and your staff, charts from your presentations, and infographics related to your area of expertise.
- Links on the left: Bye-bye blue tabs! In another move to closer align Pages with personal profiles, links to the various areas of your Page (Wall, Info, etc.) are now found on the left, just under your profile image.
- Category now visible: Just under your name, the category of your page will appear. If you need to change it, just click the Edit Page button, then click the Basic Information link at left.
But what really excites me are the new interactive and functional elements:
- Use Facebook as Page: I can now “switch” between my personal profile and my Page, so I can now like other Pages, post, and comment under my Page profile.
- Email notifications: I can also choose to receive emails anytime someone posts or comments on my Page, so I don’t have to keep checking it for new activity.
There are a few other changes, but these are the main ones that caught my attention. Have you switched your Page over to the new format yet … and if so, whaddya think?
