Some of you may have noticed that last week Facebook rolled out their timeline updates for business pages. I have to admit, it will take some getting used to, but the fact is, none of us have a choice, because as of the end of March, all pages will be switched over. So I decided to embrace it and jump right in, you can see my page here MichelleOnFacebook.me
Some of you may take to it like a duck to water, and others may feel like a kid on their first day at a new school… I know I did. Everything was the same, but different, and I was feeling a little insecure about the situation, but I found a few posts which helped me get to know my new Facebook page, which I will share with you below.
But first, the slightly annoying bits.
There is one thing I really find a bit annoying, and that’s the large amounts of scrolling that needs to be done, content doesn’t seem to be as accessible as it used to be at a glance, and there seems to be a lot of ‘gaps’ in between certain content, but that is just something to get used to over time – or learn how to bridge the gaps.
The page also feels a little cluttered, but maybe that’s because I am a neat freak when it comes to online real estate.
Jump in and go for it!
So to save the new timeline from driving you nutty, (because I think it might have a tendency to do that to some people until you fully understand it and become at one with your FB page) below are the top info posts I have found online to help you get started with your new look. My advice is to jump right in and just get going with it. It’s pretty cool, and the pages do look much smarter.
