Facebook Is Changing Again!

Yep, that’s right!  But, I mean, would the world seem right if Facebook wasn’t shaking up one thing or another every week or two?

As of last week, Facebook has begun rolling out the new Facebook Pages.  So what’s new?  And what does this mean for you?

The new Facebook Pages look quite similar to the new profile layouts.  You’ll see the now familiar strip of photos at the top of the page, as well as the navigation in the left column.  The layout isn’t the only thing that has changed, though!  Perhaps even bigger than the layout changes are the functionality changes.  By default, you’ll now receive email notifications whenever someone posts or comments on any page you admin.  Also — and this is the big one — you now have the option to use Facebook as your page.  That means you can go out into the Facebook world and comment on your friends’ statuses and anything else as your page, rather than yourself.  The opposite is true, too.  You can now comment and interact on your page as yourself, rather than your page.

While the new changes can be a little daunting, they’re actually great news for all of us who use Facebook Pages.  Why?  Because the new changes allow us to interact more like a person with a dynamic profile than a business with a static and separate page.  And, as we know, anything that can increase and improve our interaction in the social media world is good news for us!

The new Facebook Pages are rolling out gradually now and will reach everyone by March 10th.  If you’d like to switch now, just navigate to your page and click the button that appears to get the new layout and functionality.

What do you think of the new Facebook Pages?  Sound off in the comments!
