NEW Facebook Pages are here - what’s different?
With the new Facebook Page layout, brands need to be careful not to have text on the bottom portion of their cover photos because now the name and category of your page goes over the bottom 70 pixels of your cover photo. (Thanks @seanmoz for the insight!)
It appears you are limited to 3 Apps and you can’t move the Apps around…but this could be changing as more Pages are rolled out.
I just saw my first real Facebook Page with the new layout. I was most curious about what they were doing with Apps and how they would function.
Here’s an example of what a Facebook Contest looks like with the Like-Gate enabled.
Here’s what it looks like after you click Like - I’ve never seen these “Suggested Pages” before.
The contest is located beneath that.
I actually like how the cover photo stays permanent and you have a sort of “top level navigation” going.
Here’s the drop-down for all of your apps.
You can also get to the Apps in the left-hand column - my big questions are:
- Are you limited to the number of apps you can have in the New Facebook Pages?
- How many will display in this left column?
I’m sure we’ll get these questions answered as more Pages take on the new look. If you have any insight or thoughts - share it here!
