    I’ve been all over the admin page and fan page and cannot figure out exactly HOW to control which tabs to show, and your discussion about it in the article does not explain now to either.

    I have noticed since this change we don’t have people commenting on our page like we used to.  We used to post a picture or a story and people would comment, it was like a clock as soon as the new look appeared, comments came to a screeeeeeeeeching halt.

      Thanks for the comment Chrissy. That is an interesting observation. I wonder what other people’s experience is?

    Thanks for a great overview, Jeff. Comprehensive and objective. I’ve seen way to many, “I hate the new layout” posts lately. :)

      Thanks Rachel for your comment. It was intended as a quick visual overview to provide some perspective. I will be taking a closer look at the other changes over the next few months as people start using the new user interface and features.
      It will be interesting to see what the long term implications of these changes will be :)

    What happens to the recommendations I have been gathering for my client?

      I’d like to know where all the recommendations go as well. Anyone know?

    You can also ‘highlight’ an update so it spreads across right across the timeline by hovering the mouse over the top right of a post and clicking highlight. Makes it very (very) visible.

     This actually looks like a much more functional format than the old business page design. I especially like the design opportunities the timeline layout allows for.  The hard part of online pull marketing is always, you know, the pulling part. I think these sorts of designs are far more likely to grab customer attention.

    Jeff,

    Do you really think the average FB consumer is going to stand for having these changes made?  When I think of people like family and friends that are not in our industry, they are going to freak out because they won’t know what to do. Brands are buying into FB’s audience. I think they will lose a significant amount of people with he timeline.  Your thoughts?

      Some people are saying that it seems to be reducing engagement,… but it is early days.

    I found the size for the cover image, if that helps…

    Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide and may not contain:Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About sectionReferences to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site featuresCalls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”

    Thanks for the comment. It seems that Facebook wants people to keep people engaging by landing on your timeline! Let us see the buzz that happens online when more business pages realize!

    It doesn’t appear that initiating a comment on another page is possible anymore either.

    Our comments have gone way down and everyone is complaining how they can’t find where to engage on FB.  We are working on building our Google Plus because it is tied more to search and since this is killing engagement anyways we may as well develop Google Plus which is cleaner and easier to read.  I think FB did this to push brands to buying ads.
