Changes to facebook pages.


On March 30, 2012 all pages will automatically be upgraded to the new Facebook layout.


Major changes include:

  • Every page needs a cover photo
  • Your tabs will change
  • The layout of your page will change
  • People can now send messages to pages
  • There will be a new admin panel

1. Cover Photo

Every page will now have this amazing space in which to showcase a cover image. This means you need a cover image. Let’s be creative and experiment with images your audience responds well to! Check out some inspiring cover photos below. For more info on the do's and do not's of cover pages click here.


2. The layout of your tabs will change

The size of the new tabs is 810px wide, whereas before they were 520px wide. This means you need to update your tabs. Contact us if you need help.


3. Default Landing Tabs are Gone

Facebook has removed the ability to create a default landing tab. However, we can still create fan gates.


4. Photos, Likes, and Apps at Top of Page

Photos, likes and apps now appear at the top of your Page. Photos show in the first spot, but you can change the order of everything else so people see what matters most. We can show a maximum number of 12 apps.


5.  Fan Page Messages

Now people can contact you privately using messages. Notifications about new messages will appear right in your admin panel.

As a small business mentor, I work with a number of business owners who understand the need to embrace social media in promoting their business and building their brand, but don’t know where to start. Megan and her team have been invaluable in guiding my clients as to what to do, how to do it and how to fit it all into their busy schedules. Megan is an absolute whiz in her field and an invaluable support. I highly recommend Motor Mouth Advertising.
