I know I normally post Facebook lessons on Fridays, but this one CANNOT wait!

(a few hours ago)

Because we don’t have that much time left to wait (I am so excited!) I will share a few tips with you on how to prepare for the Timeline for Facebook pages.

Note: Because we do not know what features will be available to the brand pages, we can only speculate based on what is currently offered along with the offerings for Facebook profile Timelin.

Here goes:

  1. Decide on featured events. Remember that you can go back to the beginning of your business/ blog/ website. Go ahead and prepare dates and images to go with these.
  2. Make sure your page admins are correct. You don’t want someone who is no longer part of the organization to add/ delete things.
  3. Make sure you are updating your page, it will make editing your timeline much easier!
  4. Decide on a process for choosing featured posts. You could feature events, posts, giveaways, or even what fans say about your organization.
  5. Go ahead and decide on a cover photo. This will need to be an image width of 851 pixels by 315 pixels.
Also, see this post about the Timeline.
After Timeline for brand pages goes live, I will be sure to share more tips with you.
Luckily, you will have 7 days to perfect your fan page before your fans see it.
If you have any questions, or would like help with your cover photo, comment below.
Happy Facebooking!
