Facebook Fan Page Redesign – What Do You MEAN No More BOXES??!?!
Facebook has announced it is doing away with boxes on Fan pages. What does this mean?
I can’t find much information – but looks like tabs will be replacing the box functionality.
Based on feedback from developers, we have committed to the following plans to ensure a smooth transition:
- Boxes. We will notify users via messaging in profile boxes and in the Help Center that the “Boxes” tab, boxes on profiles and Pages, and application info sections will be going away.
- Application Tabs. Next week, we will give Page admins the ability to preview their custom tabs in the new 520 pixel width so they can modify their layouts as needed. All profile and Page tabs will be resized automatically beginning the week of August 23.Hoping this doesn’t mean more ad spaces for Facebook…
Hoping this doesn’t mean more ad space on Facebook Fan Pages for Facebook…. Looks like we will find out soon as you can soon test with the new limitations. Come on creatives – find some new solutions, the fan pages are a great vehicle for marketing.
