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