New Facebook Pages

Have you seen the new Facebook pages?  They’ve redesigned them to look more like the new personal profiles.  Really, it’s not a big change.  Things have just moved around a little.  The wall is more prominent now, and serves as a one-stop info feed, and apps can have their own tabs. In my opinion, there aren’t any huge benefits to the new profiles. They look a little cleaner, but other than that… I don’t know.  That said, there is one change that I do find quite interesting. With the addition of the new wall, you can now update the status of your organization or business, much like you update the status on your own profile.  Since it’s becoming more and more popular for organizations to have their own blogs and twitter accounts, it makes sense for Facebook to add this functionality.  I’m not sure it is really worthwhile for an org to send out status updates, that’s something we’re discussing at my office right now, but it is definitely interesting. What do you think? Would you be interested if your favorite org had a Facebook page and regularly updated their status?  Would you even notice it?

One thought on “New Facebook Pages

  1. I have a FB profile for my business (Maevebridal.com), that I update regularly with Twitter, (even though they don’t really want me to do that and it could get closed) because my clients love to have updates on their gowns. Not to mention, I think it gives potential clients a great understanding of the process. So yes, I will definitely be checking out the business status feature!
