Get ready to start seeing some more changes on Facebook. Facebook is updating their Pages for desktops to make them more streamlined and easier to gain access to information. And the layout looks pretty familiar.
The announcement came just this morning, and there are some pretty big changes coming. The changes will roll out this week and will include a similar layout to your own timeline with all page posts on the right side and page information on the left-hand side.
One of the biggest changes to come is the visibility of Facebook tabs, which currently are prominently featured under your cover image, and do not seem to be a part of the new layout. Does this mean Facebook tabs will no longer be a key feature for Pages? On our end, this might not be a change we can easily get accustomed to. Facebook tabs are a useful tool for campaigns and businesses alike. And if you peruse the comments on their announcement, the main question centers around Facebook tabs from many page owners.
As well, the new Facebook pages will include much easier access to Insights, Activities, and Ads Manager from the page interface, with a new navigation bar at the top. And a sidebar will include a quick synopsis of how many ads are running, current Page Likes, Post Reach, and Notifications.
