So today is the day that timeline for Pages becomes permanent and social media management platform provider, Wildfire, have released some very interesting research about how timeline has impacted the launch partner’s pages as well as a large number of other diverse pages. We've spent a bit of time distilling the main points down here for you to give you a taster as to how pages have been affected by the changes.

The pages were assessed BEFORE timeline was adopted on the 29th Feb and a month after. Engagement comparisons were then made between the two periods. It's worth bearing in mind that the real acid test will be a month from today - once all pages have had the chance to adopt and adapt to timeline.
