Facebook Pages Get Upgrade

This Thursday Facebook will be upgrading the layout of their pages and adding several new features. Some of the changes will be cosmetic and others are long overdue issues with functionality that have bothered many of us. The main updates will include:

  • Notifications when fans interact with your page or posts
  • A place to showcase photos along the top of your page
  • A news feed for your page
  • The ability to Like and post on other pages as your page

Showcase Your Latest Photos

  • The most recent photos that you post to your Wall or photos that you tag your Page in will appear here. This area will not include any photos posted by your fans.
  • To hide a photo, roll over it and click X.

Show the Top Posts on Your Wall

  • You can choose to show posts only from your page or from everyone. When viewing posts from everyone, people will be able to filter by Top Posts, which puts the most interesting stories first, or by Most Recent, which shows activity in chronological order.
  • To set a default filter for your Wall, go to Edit Page.
