If you have a business page on Facebook you have been officially put on the clock to make sure it presents well in the new Timeline format that all personal pages now have. Facebook has set a March 30th deadline for all business pages going live in the Timeline format.
Overall, Timeline should inspire users to spend more time browsing Pages and reading their feed stories. However, it removes the ability to set an app as a default landing page, which could reduce engagement with signup widgets and contests. All Pages can upgrade to Timeline today, and but also have an optional 30 day period to curate before Timeline is forcibly pushed to them on March 30th.
This is not news per se since most were aware of this happening. What is news is the March 30th date. here is what you are likely to see when you go to your page as an admin today.
With our own pending redesign on the Marketing Pilgrim blog we welcome the new look. Let’s just call it some early spring cleaning and touch up. So what do you think?
