Facebook pages has been a great tool for my business and I’ve been working (slowly) on taking full advantage of the available options. Yesterday Facebook pushed out an upgrade and frankly, I’m a big fan of the changes. Namely notification when posts. I’ve used third party apps for this in the past, but now it’s as real-time as my profile page. Here’s a video that does a quick over-view of the changes.
Here’s Facebook’s rundown of the changes:
Many people have asked for better ways to keep up with activity on their Page. We are introducing a set of features to help manage your Page communication. Starting today, you can navigate and interact with other areas of Facebook as your Page. This means you can choose to receive notifications about fan activity, Like and comment on other Pages as your Page, and get your own News Feed where you can engage with the latest and most important news from other Pages you like.
More Opportunities for Expression
We are introducing new opportunities for Pages to share. We recently launched a new Profile design, to give users more ways to tell their stories with people they care about. Now, Pages will benefit from many of the same enhancements. Starting today, you can feature photos of your Page’s most recent experiences at the top of your Page. You can highlight other Pages you are connected with as well as the people who are managing your Page.
Finally, we are very excited to announce some new features to make your Page even more engaging for users. The “Everyone” filter on the Wall provides a new way for people to see the most interesting posts first. We’ve also created a place for people to discover the friends and interests they have common with your Page.
We plan to develop even more features and improvements for Pages over the course of the coming months.
