The way Facebook changed it pages is totally amazing. You probably think that you don’t like it but once you get used to it it’s going to blow you away.
Facebook Timeline has a nice big cover image that can really draw attention to the page. Then you can put a little profile in there as well. The long profile images are gone and this short profile is a lot better. The cover image replaces this long profile image. You can also put a lot of information in there.
There are some Facebook rules that are different than the personal profile images from the timeline covers but it really doesn’t matter because you can do so much with this from your Facebook Fan Page.
The Like button is now right the middle of the page. It’s exactly in the idle of your screen. You are not allowed to it or anything but there are ways to get people to Like the Page.
For instance, if you have a post, you can pin it. A little pin tag will show on top of the post and everything that you post after this is going to be put underneath this pinned image. It’s more like a form where you stick a message. This is where you can put really cool images and links to other parts of the page because you can still use the i-frames especially at the moment you can still use custom i-frames and add Page tabs to your page.
The Page Tabs will show up just below the cover image. You can have your Likes first and foremost, and then your Page Tab and your photos.
