Facebook has just Â rolled out three new features related to Facebook Pages. The first being the previous “Become a fan” button now changed Â to “Like” instead. This was announced a couple of weeks ago and it is only now that Facebook has finally activated the feature. Nothing biggie on the feature, although I’m pretty sure some users might not like this change.
The other new feature which Facebook just rolled out is the new community pages. This is different from the current Facebook pages commonly used mainly by brands organizations and other groups who are on to social media marketing. Community Pages are a new type of Facebook Page which are dedicated to a topic or experience owned collectively by a community connected to it. Â Similar to the current Facebook pages for brands, public figures and organization, you can connect with other members of Community Pages whom you share similar interests and experiences. In other wordsÂ Facebook Community Pages is a collection of knowledge shared by many Facebook users.
The last of the three new features is related to Facebook members’ profiles. Starting today, certain parts of your profile, such as city, hometown, education, work, likes and interest will not be linked to actual Facebook pages pertaining to those information.
Now, some may not like this feature so Facebook was quick to point out that this is an opt-in feature. The next time you visit your Facebook profile page, you’ll find a box that recommends Pages based on the information you included in your profile. Â You can opt to connect to these Pages or not by simply clicking – “Link All to My Profile” or select only the Pages that you wan to link to your profile by clicking on “Choose Pages Individually.” Once you’ve made your choice, specific information on your profile will be linked to their specific Pages.
Additionally, you can add or remove connections anytime you want to. You can even highlight a particular connections through drag and drop button. And of course, you can control who among your Facebook friends can see which part of your “Connected” Facebook profile.
