Latest Facebook updates

Updates to the look of Pages on desktop (March 2014): In March Facebook began rolling out a streamlined look for Pages on desktop to make it easier for people to find the information they want and help Page admins find the tools they use most. Visit "Top 5 Questions about the Update to Pages" to find out what will be changing.

Text updates from Pages (Jan 2014):  Facebook has decided to pull back on text updates from Pages. The newest version of the Newsfeed will show fewer text-based status updates from Pages, but will serve more text-based status updates from users. Page administrators are encouraged to switch to more media- and link-based content sharing, and to use the link share tool rather than embedding a link in the text of the update.

 

 

Tips: Images are two times more engaging than status updates, aim for posts wiht 80 characters or less to help Facebook users' attention. View the "Facebook Page Administration" presentation to learn more.
