    • An Upgrade to Facebook Pages Now, more ways to share your story February 10, 2011 We are excited to introduce several major improvements to Facebook Pages that will enable brands, businesses and organizations to build stronger relationships with their fans. These new features will enable Page owners to better manage communication, express themselves, and increase engagement. This transition guide will help you understand the changes and get a head start at optimizing your Page for the redesign. Log in to Facebook now to preview your upgraded page and you’ll be given the option to upgrade instantly. All Pages will automatically be upgraded on March 10, 2011.Old Page (Admin View) New Page (Admin View)© 2011 Facebook, Inc. All rights reserved.

    • Better Communication Page owners have asked for a more efficient way see new activity and keep up with the conversations on their Page. As a Page admin, you can now navigate and interact with other areas of Facebook as your Page. This means you can choose to receive notifications about activity on your Page, and you can also Like (and post) on other Pages interacting as your Page. Also, you will now be able to engage with News Feed from the Page point-of-view. There, you can find and engage with the latest and most important news from the other Pages you care about, just like a user. Use Facebook as your Page 1 2 3© 2011 Facebook, Inc. All rights reserved.

    • More Opportunities for Expression We are also very excited to introduce new products for Pages to more fully express who they are. We recently launched a new Profile design, to give users more ways to share their stories with people they care about. Now, Page owners will benefit from many of the same enhancements. Starting today, Pages will be able to feature photos of their most recent experiences at the top of the Page. Similar to how users can select to feature family members and other important connections, Pages will be able to select Pages that they Like to always appear in the left hand column. Lastly, Pages can choose to feature who is managing the Page. These new products will provide Pages with more opportunities for self-expression and a consistently engaging experience across the site.

    • Improved Relevancy Finally, we are very excited to announce some new features to make Pages even more engaging and relevant to people who visit your Page. The new “Everyone” filter on the Wall provides a way for users to see the most interesting posts first—including posts from their friends, your Page and other fans. When viewing your Page, the “admin view” filter on the left column of your Page’s Wall allows you to see hidden posts (spam and posts containing words on your Blocklist) and unhide to move them back to the “Everyone” view so more people can see those posts. Mutual Friends and Interests We’ve also created a place for people to discover the friends and interests they have common with your Page, all in the top right corner of the Page, just like Profiles. These improvements will provide Page owners with greater ability to manage their conversations with fans and relevant pages, express who they are, and enhance interactions. We plan to develop more products and functionality for Pages owners over the course of the coming months. “Everyone” Wall Filter and Blocklist© 2011 Facebook, Inc. All rights reserved.

    • iframes are enabled for Page Tabs You can now build your Page Tab apps using iframes rather than FBML. This makes developing an app for a Page virtually the same as developing an app on Facebook. Now, developers can build apps that run across Facebook (including Pages and Canvas applications) using the same simple, standards-based web programming model (HTML, JavaScript, and CSS). In addition, you can now easily integrate social plugins and the Graph API within your tab. How to add an iframe Page Tab Enable iframes by editing the Facebook Integration settings on the Developer App: Integration settings on the Developer App Specify a Tab Name and a Tab URL, which will be loaded when the user selects your Tab. Finally, to add the app to a Page, an admin of the Facebook Page must navigate to your app’s Profile Page and select “Add to my Page.” We strongly recommended that you migrate your app to iframes as we will be moving forward with our previously announced plans to deprecate FBML as a primary technology for building apps on Facebook.* *Note: Our deprecation of FBML does not impact XFBML© 2011 Facebook, Inc.
