Facebook today came out with a big update to Facebook pages that include “Preferences”, a brand-new layout for UI, a dedicated news feed, simple navigation, refresh admin controls for partial or complete convenience, new insights as well as security and integrity. Features.
Facebook announced the experience of the new pages in a blog post and said the overhaul is set to begin today. Here are the new key features / changes:
- Redesigned layout It’s simpler and more intuitive
- Dedicated news feed Discover and join conversations, follow trends, interact with colleagues and engage with fans
- Easy On Between personal profiles and pages
- Task-based admin controls updated Granted full control or partial access to trusted page administrators
- Functional insight ights And more relevant notifications
- Features protection and integrity To detect spammy content and disguised accounts
The new UIT is designed to make it easy to switch between personal profiles and public pages. Facebook says it’s “cleaner and more flowing” than ever before. It has a focus on BIOS, posts and important information.
Here’s how a dedicated news feed for pages describes:
We are bringing the power of news feeds to the pages for the first time. Pages can now discover and join conversations, follow trends, interact with peers and engage with fans. Dedicated news feeds will suggest new connections – other public images, pages, groups and trending content that care about a page or public figure.
In order to make the pages make the conversation more visible to a wider audience and to present them more frequently in the news feed of their followers, public personality comments will be left at the top of the comments section. People will be able to follow pages directly from comments and suggestion posts.
Another focus is “more rich interactive conversations” so a new text-based quiz format is included to reboot the pages.
No more choice
One big change with this update is the removal of page preferences. Facebook has moved this to followers:
We’re removing preferences and focusing on followers to make it easier for people to link to their favorite pages. Aside from the likes, a page’s followers represent people who can get updates from the pages, which helps give public figures a stronger indication of their fan base.
Admins will probably be pleased to see advanced management features:
We’ve added new page management features, such as the ability to more clearly define and manage admin access permissions on a specific page basis. For example, you will now be able to give different levels of access to manage specific tasks, including insights, advertising, content and community activity and messages. It will also ensure the security and integrity of the account.
Finally, Facebook says it is using verified badges to improve blocked content identification as well as help protect the community:
We want Facebook to be a safe place to connect with fans, so we’ve improved our ability to detect activities that aren’t permitted on our platform, including hate speech, violent, sexual or spammy content and camouflage. We’re expanding the visibility of a verified badge to make it easier to identify posts and comments from authentic pages and profiles. A verified page comment on another page’s public post may appear more in the comments section and be visible in the news feed.
New pages are starting to roll out today, but Facebook says it will be visible to all users “in the coming months”.
