Facebook’s New Look For Brand Pages Will Be Available To All This Week

fb-chowder

Nearly three months after introducing a redesign of Facebook Pages, the social network announced today that the new look will be available to all users this week.

Many pages have already made the switch, which replaces the two-column Timeline with a single column and removes the thumbnail images for custom tabs from their position under the cover photo.

We reported last month that Facebook had started to grant access to more page administrators. Today, Facebook said that those who haven’t switched will be presented with an option to tour the new design and switch immediately — or delay a bit more: “Admins that want to update their Pages before switching to the new design can wait up to two weeks before making the switch. However, every Page will automatically switch to the updated design two weeks after the tour has been viewed.”

Also included in the new design, Facebook noted, is the ability to adjust the position of tabs — reviews, menus, photos, etc. — in the top navigation menu and the left column.

    Yeah I too got notification to get the new design for my FB page and I just updated one of my FB pages to this latest design.

    I must say the new design is really more user friendly and more effective for page owners. Here I would like to share the new changes in the updated FB page design:

    1) Everything you need to manage on page is displayed in three tabs on the top bar of page after logging in.
    2) Most important updates such as New likes, notifications and unread messages are displayed in sidebar section of the page.
    3) Setting panel is made more simple and powerful by placing all the Page-settings and customization under one tab.
    4) Page reviews and likes are displayed in left sidebar, which I didn’t like at all. In my opinion, it was better to show reviews and number of likes just below the Page Name.

    Anyways, its great to have this new design. I recommend FB page owners to updates theirs to latest one.
    I found the post shared on Kingged.com.
