So Facebook changed your page once again…

Most of you have seen people with the new Facebook Timeline in action or maybe you've activated it for yourself. I'm not really sure how I feel about it but I figure I'll just embrace it and get used to it because I'm sure it's here to stay.

I found a great little rundown and wanted to share it. This post will give you a basic guide on some of the key Timeline features.

If you don't have access to Photoshop, you can use something like Resizr to adjust your photos. And if you don't want to do that, Facebook allows you to drag and drop your images into alignment.

There are three main types of posts that appear on your Timeline.
  • "Pinning" - Makes a post 'sticky' (stays active for 7 days and you can only pin one post at a time)
  • "Highlighting" - Makes it's double size on the Timeline. Use it when you really want something to stand out. You can do more than one post and photos and videos may be best.
**Note, you can not pin and highlight something at the same time.**
  • "Milestones" - Simply that. Important dates and events in the company. First designs of the site (from napkin to now type of thing…)… x subscribers…. anything you want. Milestones must include a date and they appear as a double wide image. Text will be centered too.

To see the interaction on your page, look under the 'Recent Posts by Others' box.

I recommend watching the video yourself if you want to dig deeper. It's just under 13 minutes and may make more sense.
