Facebook pages redesign puts focus back on News Feed content


Facebook on Monday introduced a new design for Facebook pages, making things such as key performance indicators more easily visible for managers, and location info easier to find for fans.

However, this move also signals that Facebook is moving away from tabs — which have been a popular tool for many Facebook marketers to draw attention to contests as well as get users to visit other entities such as an Instagram feed or website. Page admins can still draw users to the company website, a contest, or anything else, but it’s becoming clear that this will have to be done through News Feed posts and not direct visits to a page’s timeline.

When many page admins and marketers saw the new design, they wondered, “Where did the tabs go?”


Coming soon: A streamlined look for Facebook pages


Not long after Facebook announced a redesign of News Feed, the company is letting marketers and page admins know that there will be a new timeline design for Facebook pages.

This will not roll out immediately, though some page admins might have this new design today. Facebook noted that this will roll out throughout the course of the week.

What’s changing?

The right-side column of the timeline will show all the page’s posts. All posts will appear consistently, in one line, as it does on a person’s timeline and on News Feed. The left-side column will hold information about the page or business, including a map, hours of operation, phone number, website URL, photos and videos. Key indicators, such as ads running, likes, post reach and unread notifications will be in a bar off to the right of the posts.

What does this mean for marketers?

While users have had the ability to edit posts and comments for a few months, more pages are now being allowed to edit their posts. As noticed by Or Fialkov of Fialkov Digital, Facebook is rolling out the ability for pages to go back and correct mistakes or update information in their posts.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Inside Facebook that all verified pages can do this, and that it is being tested for some non-verified pages:

We started rolling out post editing capabilities for verified Pages earlier this month. All verified Pages now have this capability, and we’re in the process of testing it with a small group of non-verified Pages.
