Facebook is rolling out a bunch of new changes to the way Pages work. Some of these changes will mirror the latest profile page overhauls — like a nifty photo stream placed right above the wall. Other changes give Page Administrators way more functionality — like notifications when fans interact on your page. A much overdue function.
Here are a few new functions that we’ve been wanting for a while now…
- Get notifications when fans interact with your page or posts
- Make comments as your page on other pages
- Post to your page as yourself or your page
Here’s a rundown of the other changes — obtained directly from a helpful, user-friendly interface that Facebook provides as an introduction to the new Pages.
Photos. The most recent photos that you post to your Wall or photos that you tag your Page in will appear in a photo stream right above your wall. This area will not include any photos posted by your fans.
Navigation. Navigation links are now on the left, just like on people’s profiles.
Wall Filters. You now have two Wall filters. You can show posts by your page and top posts from Everyone, a new way for people to see the most interesting stories first. As an admin, you’ll have additional filters for viewing posts on your page.
Admin View. You now have the flexibility to interact with the other areas of Facebook as a page. And, you can get notifications when fans interact with your page or posts, see activity from the pages you like in your news feed, like other pages and feature them on your page, AND make comments as your page on other pages.
New Settings. You can set defaults for your email notifications and how you post to your page – as yourself or your page. You can also select which featured pages appear in the left column.
