Timeline for Facebook Pages

We’re excited about the New Timeline for Facebook Pages.

As you might have seen over the last few months, Facebook has been gearing up for the rollout of the “Timeline”. Profiles already have it and today they announced it for business Pages.

Why are we excited? Well… we think it gives business’ a better design palette to show off their brand. The first thing you will see is the NEW Cover Image that is forefront on your Page. This gives you the opportunity to graphically tie your identity together a little better than the smaller Facebook Sidebar.

But wait… what about the TAB that I had created? Will that exist? Where is it? How do I get to it?

Whoah, whoah, whoah… one question at a time!

Yes…they still exist and will actually be a little wider than your current TAB/Page. How to get to it, where it resides and more will be answered in future videos. We’ll update this post with the future video. In the meantime… here are some questions you might be asking:

When will my Page get the new design?

  • You can turn on the PREVIEW TODAY!
  • OR you can prepare your page first.
  • Everyone will be automatically upgraded on March 30, 2012

What size is the Facebook Cover?

851 pixels by 315 pixels

What can I put on my Facebook Cover?

That’s a tricky question. While the sky is the limit with our creative designs… Facebook does have some simple rules to follow. You’ll want to choose/design something that represents your organization. Use some great shots of your products, photos of you, lots of people, concept images. Get creative OR let us get creative for you!

Facebook Covers may not contain:

  • Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”
  • Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About section
  • References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site features
  • Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”

The design is not meant for promotions, advertisements, coupons nor can it be primarily text-based.

So what will TweetPages offer?

Great question! (glad you asked)

Pricing for NEW clients:
We will have the NEW prices for the Facebook Cover (replacing the Facebook Sidebar) and new prices for the Facebook Page (replacing the Facebook Tab). Both designs are larger and the prices will increase slightly. All NEW orders will be designed to the new Timeline.

Pricing for EXISTING clients:
We will have an ‘upgrade’ fee to transfer your current designs to the NEW Facebook Timeline.
This information will be forthcoming and we’ll let you know as soon as possible.

Here is a sneak peak of our Facebook Cover

We’re excited about the new designs and look forward to working with you. Please let us know what YOU think of the NEW TIMELINE below…


FOLLOW UP Q&A:


Q: Can we still have default landing pages? (instead of landing on the Timeline?)
A: There are no longer default landing pages, we don’t foresee Facebook changing this.

Q: Is there a way to show some apps to non-fans and other apps to fans?
A: Yes! Fan-gating is still available. (It currently has some bugs, so be patient)

A: Facebook still does not support mobile

Q: They used to be called TABS… what are they now?
A: Facebook is calling them APPS now.

Q: If I create a NEW Page today will it be the NEW Timeline layout?
A: Yes. All new pages created from this point forward will be the New Timeline.

Q: Why do the NEW 810 wide Apps look off-center?
A: This is a Facebook issue and they [developers] are looking into it. http://developers.facebook.com/bugs

Q: Should I PUBLISH my Timeline or leave it in PREVIEW?
A: We are leaving ours in Preview mode for now (as they work out all the bugs).
