Timeline For Pages

Timeline for pages are here! Well, almost. You now have the ability to preview timeline on your page, and if you choose, you will be able to go ahead and publish your new page for all the world to see! According to Facebook, everyone who hasn’t already jumped on the bandwagon will automatically be rolled out on March 30th. I’m very excited about the new capabilities to brand pages and take advantage of all the new features!

Of course, change is tough for a lot of people, but from what I’ve seen so far, this is definitely a good thing! Looking for some more info about the new Timeline for pages, check out Mashable’s article!

Need someone to walk you through the new page and ensure that your social media strategy will be able to keep up with the pack? Jump over to my contact page and we’ll set up a time to chat about what lies ahead for your online branding!

(Of course I have to show off my new timeline! Check it out!)

Facebook Updates: What is going on?!

facebook-new means betterOk, so if you aren’t part of the 50% of Facebook’s user base who log in to Facebook every day, you missed some things, to say the least. Ahead of the f8 conference, Facebook rolled out several updates designed to create functionality similar to Google+ within the Facebook platform that may drastically effect the way you interact with “friends” on Facebook. For online marketers, there may be other implications that we will want to keep an eye on.

With the implementation of a new “Top Stories” news feed, and the removal of the option for a “Most Recent” feed,  Edgerank has become more important than ever for brands who want to stay in front of their fans. Creating content that drives genuine engagement will become the single deciding factor in the success of future Facebook marketing campaigns by enticing fans to like, comment, share, and now “Mark as top story”  brand page updates to increase their Edgerank, and thus the likelihood that they will be seen by others. .

EdgeRankChecker.com did a good job of providing a “layman’s” explanation of the immediately apparent effects of these changes. Check out their article “Facebook Unveils New News Feed – What does this mean for EdgeRank?” for more details.

In the meantime, I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any other developments in the latest episode of “Keeping up with the Social Media Jones’s”!
