Facebook is on a roll. It seems the social media platform is trying out different ways to keep the users from moving away to another channel. Last week, Facebook redesigned its news feed and now it’s time for its Pages. On Monday, the company announced a new look for its Pages. The design will change both for Page visitors as well as the administrators of that Page, thereby giving it a more ‘streamlined’ look. So, what’s new in this redesign? Let us have a look.
New Look for Facebook Pages
Two columns which were there in the old version will still be in the new design. However, the left column will include information about the corporation or the brand, whereas the right one will be the Timeline of the Page. If you recall, in the old design, both the columns represented the Timeline. The posts of the Page were divided between the right and the left columns, as visitors used to scroll down the page.
The “Invite your Friends” section has been shifted to the left side of the screen from the right in the new look. The text box used for posting content which was placed in the left side in the old design has been moved to the right.
Another new addition that will be integrated in the new look of the Facebook Page includes a metrics section. This section, which will be available for Page admins, will be placed at the far right of the Page and will contain information about the number of likes, the ads and the reach of a particular post. A brand new feature will be rolled out for the Page admins in the new look. “Pages to Watch” will help admins to create a list of competitor or similar pages through which they can compare metrics like page likes, engagement, etc. Larger fonts and icons will also be used in the new look for Pages, just like the newly designed news feed.
Only for the Web
The new design however, will only be available for web users. Facebook mobile users won’t be able to see any change. Facebook Page with its new look is likely to roll out this week. A Facebook redesign of Pages for mobile was announced in April last year.
