Facebook rolls out new Brand Page design – (courtesy of Wildfire)

by Cheryl Wolhar - MyVineSpace on February 15, 2011

Many of you have already noticed that Facebook has changed the layout design on your Fan Pages (Brand Pages) and since I have been asked by a few of my clients to help them understand these changes, I decided to post this article that I just found from Wildfire that describes all the changes in great detail.

Many of the features are similar to the changes Facebook recently made to our profile pages like the photos strip along the top however, the new feature I like the most is that you can now choose to interact with your page and other pages as yourself or as your brand.  This is a great new feature that was sorely needed.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had customers tell me that they want to be able to post on their page as themselves but still have admin rights to the page.  This feature solves that problem.

I am not so sure I like the new navigation menu on the left sidebar rather than the tabs across the top, however there is a way to code your own custom tabs on a page that I can implement now that the Facebook tabs are gone.  You can read more about all the new features on the link below.

This is much better! I still wish that my FB page and my personal page were totally separate with different logins, but thus is a start!
