  14. 14. Details and Specs• A small square that represents your brand anywhere it appears (Newsfeed, user Timelines, other brand pages, etc.)• Since the dimensions of this space are much smaller than before, we recommend to use your brands logo here and use the Cover photo for campaign-related promotion.• Dimensions: This picture scales well from 180x180 px to 32x32 px
  15. 15. PHOTOS & IMAGESTab and app images
  16. 16. Details and Specs• Located under your Cover Photo• Move around these boxes that link to your Tabs and Apps by clicking the "pencil" icon in the top right of each square. Then, you can swap their positions with others as you can only feature three Tabs or Apps in the top menu (the rest of your Tabs and Apps will be in a drop-down).• The only position that you cannot swap is the Photos box that will remain static in the first position.• Each Tab and App will need an eye-catching photo (Dimensions: 111x74 px) to represent what users might experience upon clicking that image
  17. 17. Ideas and Inspiration• Consistent look and feel with Cover Photo• Visually represent the experience of the tab or app• Communicate larger campaign initiative• Include text if possible• Bright, eye-catching colours• Swap out these images often to keep content fresh, even if the tab/app is the same• Don’t need “Likes” here as it just takes up space
  19. 19. Details and Specs• Your brands Timeline has replaced your brands Wall• Users will see posts from their friends who Like your brand and posts from their friends that relate to your brand when they first visit your page• You can choose to pin, highlight, or hide posts on or from your Timeline Pinned Posts: You can choose one post to "pin" to the top of your Timeline.

  21. 21. Ideas and Inspiration • Use large, eye-catching, colourful images when a story is highlighted • Go back in time and ensure each point in time is well curated • Find great content from Fans and feature their posts • Video content also expands to full-width, keep this in mind when highlighting • Share fun facts, stories, and exclusive information that represents your brand • Make Timeline curation an experience for your Fans
  23. 23. Details and Specs• Milestones are very similar to Life Events on user Timelines• Curate your brands Milestones to commemorate events as far in the past as your companys founding, the launch of new lines of products, and social achievements like fan count numbers• You can feature these Milestones on your Timeline or simply add them for future perusal• When you add your first Milestone, you must establish a point in time that your Timeline will end at. Keep this in mind as it is unclear at this point how to change this after the date has been established
  24. 24. Ideas and Inspiration• Fan growth milestones• New product lines• Company milestones and key events in history• Founder and leadership content• Fan-related milestones for features, etc.• Character and content-based milestones• Use milestones to engage and inform

  29. 29.
