Surprise! Facebook has a new Fan Page look and feel.
So far the new Facebook Fan Page has received some mixed reviews.
New features I really like:
- Use Facebook as your Page - Log in as "ProWorks" and post comments as your fan page and and even post on other people's posts as your fan page. Basically, you can switch between your personal profile and a fan page view. Try it now! (Need Help? Try this how-to: New Facebook Fan Page Feature: How To Post As Both Your Page and Yourself)
- Email notifications - You can now get an email every time someone comments or posts to your wall. Finally!
Things I don't like so much:
- New "most interesting" sorting of the wall posts - Each person who visits your page and views the wall with the "Everyone" sort will see a different post order. The order is based on some sort of "most interesting" score that they receive. Note the date order below.
When logged in as me (Jason):
When logged in as ProWorks (the Fan Page):
When Loyan views the page:
So that's pretty crazy.
The good news is that you can preview the changes before making the switch to make sure your tabs and everything looks good. If it doesn't look good you have until March 11th to fix it because that's the date everyone will be switched over no matter what.
