Facebook Introduces Timeline for Business Pages

March 2nd, 2012
Facebook Introduces Timeline for Business Pages - Envigor

After first announcing the Timeline, a more visual update to the profile that prominently displays posts, photos, apps and life events, back in September of last year, Facebook is finally integrating the product into business pages. What does this mean for business page owners, well, let’s take a look…

More Visual Features
Just like with personal profiles, business will be able to add a large cover image to their page. This is a great opportunity for businesses as it allows for more brand real estate. Additionally, page photos, likes and apps will be prominently featured below the cover image.

More Content Control and Organization
With the new platform, page owners will be able to “pin” important posts that they want to ensure that fans see, to the top of their page each week. Admins will also be able to see and respond to recent posts, messages and other activity more easily with it appearing at the top of the page.

More Personal Interaction
Page owners will now be able to activate the messaging feature, which will allow their fans to contact them privately and vice versa. Alternately, page owners will have able to turn this feature off if they wish, as well.

The End of Default Landing Pages
One of the biggest downfalls, in our opinion, of the new Timeline platform for pages is the inability to create default landing pages. This means that pages with a landing tab or app that prompts visitors to ‘like’ the page before revealing exclusive content, will either have to provide users with a direct link or persuade them to click on that app on the Timeline view.

Overall, the new Timeline for business pages will take some getting used to for both page owners and fans. Like all Facebook changes and updates, there are bound to be some unhappy users, so if you are the owner of a business page, make sure you help your fans through the transition as best you can.  Take the opportunity to test out the Timeline on your page now so that you will be able to make the most of it when all pages are required to switch over for good by March 30.

Don’t forget to check out our timeline and post your opinion the new facebook layout.

Envigor Design did an awesome job with our company's website. They put together a great site in a timely manner and provided quick and thorough responses to all our questions/requests. All of this was provided at a reasonable price. They are very pleasant to work with and I highly recommend them. Thanks Andy and Amanda!

Andy and Amanda of Envigor Design were amazing to work with in designing our new website. We continue to use them for print materials as well. They clearly layout the process and work very hard to make everything very easy. They continue to exceed our expectations!

The White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce highly recommends Envigor Design! It has been a great experience working with Andy and Amanda as they designed and created our new logo and website design. They listened to what we needed in a site and have responded in a timely manner to complete the project. We are very proud of our beautiful web site plus it is user friendly for our members, community and visitors. They are both very communicative, patient, innovative and professional. We enjoy having a continued working relationship with them still today!

I was referred to Envigor from another website developer that couldn't help with our project. Andy and Amanda were great to work with - heard what I was asking for and put it out there. The support we've received since going live has been great. I would and have recommended them to others!

They were fantastic - by , July 18, 2011

I found Envigor through a side project they did on Etsy. I was looking for a designer for a website and marketing products. I'm on the complete other side of the country from Envigor. They were fantastic. I've never worked with a graphic designer before, but I can't imagine the process going any smoother than it did. It felt like Amanda was beside me as I opened my business. She was smart, professional, and put up with my mood swings gracefully. (I would like the logo one day, and then email her back the next day saying I didn't.) I could not have asked for someone more responsive. Emails were always answered immediately, with usually more information that I expected. Envigor delved pretty deeply into what kind of branding would best play to my business's strengths, and created something beautiful. I can't recommend them highly enough.
