Simple and Intuitive Page Design

Now it’s easy to navigate between a personal profile and public Page. Facebook have redesigned the look and feel to be cleaner and more streamlined than before — including making it simple for people to see bios, posts and other important info. 

Dedicated News Feed and New Ways to Engage

Facebook are bringing the power of News Feed to Pages for the first time. Now Pages can discover and join conversations, follow trends, interact with peers and engage with fans. The dedicated News Feed will also suggest new connections — other public figures, Pages, Groups and trending content that a Page or public figure cares about. 

To make Page conversations more visible to a wider audience and surfaced more frequently in their followers’ News Feed, comments from public figures will be bumped to the top of the comments section. People will also be able to follow Pages directly from comments and recommendations posts.

New Q&A Format

To support richer, interactive conversations, Facebook are also introducing a new text-based Q&A format.

Focus on Page Followers

Facebook are removing Likes and focusing on Followers to simplify the way people connect with their favorite Pages. Unlike Likes, Followers of a Page represent the people who can receive updates from Pages, which helps give public figures a stronger indication of their fan base.

Improved Page Management Tools

Facebook have added new Page management features — like the ability to more clearly assign and manage admin access permissions based on specific tasks. For example, you’ll now be able to grant varying levels of access to manage specific tasks including Insights, Ads, Content, and Community Activity & Messages. This will also ensure account safety and integrity.

Safety and Integrity Features

Facebook want the platform to be a safe place to connect with fans, so they have improved our ability to detect activity that isn’t allowed on our platform including hate speech, violent, sexual or spammy content and impersonation. Facebook are continuing to expand the visibility of a verified badge to make it easier to identify posts and comments from authentic Pages and profiles. A verified Page’s comment on another Page’s public post, may appear higher in the comments section and be visible in News Feed.

How to Transition and Learn More

This is just the beginning — Facebook will continue to roll out the new Pages experience to all Pages in the upcoming months.
