New Facebook Timeline Pages {Video}

All Facebook pages are updating to the new “timeline” page layout by the end of the month. This video, produced by Facebook, offers a few helpful hints and tips.

If you’ve already upgraded your Facebook page, leave a link to it in the comments so we can go get inspiration and ideas from what you’ve done!

So how do you like the new Facebook layout? Good? Bad? Who cares?

  1. Thanks for posting this video.
    I have the new timeline on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/freshstitches
    … but I don’t feel like I’ve totally gotten the hang of it yet. It seems difficult to keep track of where customers are posting and commenting, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it!

    I really like the new timeline. I set mine up the day it became available and have noticed quite an increase in FB traffic and comments. I still have work to do on it, but so far, so good!

    Oops. Should have at least included my FB page http://www.facebook.com/jacarandadesigns

  4. Great Facebook video. I just pinned it and added the link to my Google+ page which then links through to Facebook and Twitter pages. That way I can do one promo and it saves time because what I have posted is automatically posted to FB and Twitter without me having to travel to the 3 social sites. Love the inter-connectiveness.

    I had a web and graphics designer create a facebook banner for my page. I figured I need to embrace the changes in order to keep up with the pace of technology, as I don’t want to get left behind.

    I found it took a bit of getting used to the new look, but soon enough the old one will fade from my memory! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Spiritfire-Designs/210308508988688

  7. I’ve made the switch. I wasn’t sure about it to begin with, but now that I’m getting used to it, I think it looks much more professional than the older format. Now if I can just get more followers to appreciate it! :)

  8. Mine is set up with the new timeline. I wasn’t on Facebook enough before the switch with my business so it didn’t make a huge difference to me, but I like the formatting at the top with the big cover photo.

  9. Now that we were all forced to switch, I guess I have to say it’s not so bad… It’s much more visually appealing of course! I just miss the app that allowed you to showcase your Etsy shop directly on your page, and set it as your landing tab ): Has anyone found a good replacement?!?
