In March I covered the 4 Facebook Page Design Features You Should Watch when Facebook rolls out their new design and now the time has finally arrived…
Early adopters who signed up for Facebook’s Waitlist started receiving messages this week that their Page would be upgraded to the new design on Friday, June 6, 2014. As predicted, the ability to “Highlight” posts no longer appears to be an option for Page Managers with the new single column design. However, Page Managers can still “Pin” posts to the top of their Timeline to capture the attention of visitors that come to their Page.
Every other company Page will be converted to the new layout on June 19th so if you haven’t reached out to your Creative team or started working on your new Cover Photo design, you still have time. The big key take away for Cover Photos is that your company name and tagline are going to appear as a text overlay in the lower 65 pixels so it’s best to not put any copy there.
Have you already converted to the new Facebook Page design? If so, leave a comment with a link to your Facebook Page so we can all check out your new design.
