Upgrade to new Facebook Fanpage design


Facebook did makeover of user profile pages and asked users to upgrade user profile page to new design style. Now similar makeover is being given to Facebook fanpages. If you have created a Facebook fanpage then you can upgrade fanpage(s) to new design style layout with a click of a button. New Fanpage layout is very similar to new user profile page design style with few elements moved here and there.

Changes in new Facebook Fanpages layout

2. There are two publicly visible Wall filters: Posts by Page and Everyone.

3. You can opt to receive email notifications when people post or comment on your Page.

4. You can feature other Pages your Page likes, or admins of your Page, in the new “Likes” and “Page Owners” sections on the left side of your Page.

5. When people visit your Page, they will be able to view mutual connections, like friends who also like your Page, as well as other Pages that both they and your Page like.
