Facebook Timeline For Facebook Pages: 12 changes you need to know about

  1. 1. February 29, 2012FACEBOOK TIMELINE FORFACEBOOK PAGES12 CHANGES YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
  2. 2. 1. COVER PHOTO Width:  851  px   Height:  315  px   Template:   h+p://media02.hongkiat.com/facebook-­‐:meline-­‐covers/ Facebook-­‐Timeline-­‐Template.psd  
  3. 3. 2. PROFILE PICTURE Size:  180  x  180   Will  be  scaled  down  to:  32  x  32  
  4. 4. 3. VIEWS AND APPS Tabs   will   be   placed   under  the  cover  image.   First   one   is   always   the   photo   tab,   you   can   choose  what  the  other   three  tabs  will  be         Size   tab   icons:   111   x   74   pixels.   You   can   upload   a   JPG,   GIF   or   PNG   file.   If   the   image   is   larger   than   111x74   pixels,   it   will   be   resized   and   converted.  File  size  limit  5  MB.    
  5. 5. 3. VIEWS AND APPS The   width   of   the   tabs   has   expanded:   from   520  px  to  810  px     Height  is  unlimited.   ATTENTION!   It’s  not  possible  anymore  to  set  a  tab  as  the  default  tab,  so   people  won’t  automa:cally  see  your  (welcome)  tab  anymore!  
  6. 6. 4. PINNED POSTS You  can  always  pin  1  post  at  the  top  of  your  Facebook  pages   BUT  a[er  7  days  this  pin  will  automa:cally  be  ‘unpinned’!

  12. 12. 10. ACTIVITY LOG The  Ac;vity  Log  helps  you  manage  your  Facebook  Timeline.   Here   you   can   go   back   to   old   posts,   hide   or   unhide   posts,   change  dates,  delete  posts,  …  
  13. 13. 11. PRIVATE MESSAGES This   also   might   be   perfect   to   get  personal  informa:on  from   your   fans.   For   instance   when   they   won   a   contest   and   you   need  their  address     The  new  message  buAon  helps  you  have  one-­‐on-­‐one   conversa:ons  with  your  audience.    
  14. 14. 12. ADMIN PANEL The  Admin  Panel  displays  what  used  to  be  at  the  right  of  your   page.   For   instance:   no:fica:ons,   insights,   page   :ps   and   now   also  private  messages
