Tune Out Your Friends & Tune Up Brands With Facebook’s New “Pages Feed”

Sick of all your friends pictures of pets, babies and food? Facebook’s here to help. Today a new feature, “Pages Feed,” was launched. This feature is basically a news feed for Page content only.

This is a perfect time for a greater emphasis on pages as Facebook has come under fire for recent Page reach issues. Just last week notifications for Pages was announced, yet another feature to help bring back Page reach and frequency. This new feed acts much similarly to the normal Facebook feed, with the most relevant posts being displayed to users.

It appears that the new Pages Feed button will be located in the left navigation bar, alongside the other Facebook functionality. Pages Feed should currently be available to all users who visit the dedicated feed  URL.

    This feature should definitely improve the exposure of brand updates in FB. But i still think companies shouldn’t rely on FB to broadcast their updates, since it’s a walled garden they have no control over. Sending email newsletter, building a community through their own forums, etc are much better ways. Your thoughts, Greg?

    Greater emphasis on brands?!?! Do you really think that businesses are asking to placed in a dark corner, cordoned off from the space that consumers actually view?
    What business would actually ask for this? All the change means is that facebook page posts are irrelevant unless they’re “promoted”. So basically FB just made their entire system a pay-to-play model for businesses

    Goodbye facebook, hello Twitter(?)
