Facebook changes Band Pages to its Timeline format on March 30th


Earlier before, array of musicians were the kind of people who dominated facebook all because of the MySpace-styled of fan page presentation – it help represents them to better design their profile page than other platform all because of the contribution of third-party fan page design apps and tools such as BandPage, ReverbNation, and FanBridge. But on March 30th, there will be no nothing like that anymore due to the recent facebook changes which is going to take effect exactly on March 30 – disabling the pre-designed Facebook fan pages and reverting those fan pages to the new Timeline version of Facebook fan pages.Facebook changes band pages to Timeline format March 30 by Mark Zuckerberg

Timeline is known as one of the latest facebook changes innovation which is aimed at making Facebook becomes a story-like platform for every individual and organization using it.

This Facebook changes has many benefits for each group of page owners but the international artists and local ones struggling to reach the limelight will have to be forced into using a one-styled design for all their fan pages – which mean; all the pre-designed facebook fan pages with landing pages, event signup forms, email list subscription forms, content players with streaming tracts and all of that will no more be in active starting from March 30th.

March 10th is the day that Facebook will presents its new design layout switch on all the “Fan Pages” created by users– to its Timeline format. This new change will bring about an end to the scrolling wall of posts and status updates that many were familiar with for some years back with a more graphic-intensive and topically prearranged layout. As we all know, Timeline excludes third-party apps which many have used in the past for creating/designing their Facebook pages to make it more attractive than the default look.

For musicians and other artist such as comedians and other TV Hosts, it presents a noteworthy change that might not be so welcome at the first stage of experiencing it – but, as facebook was in the history, people tends to love new facebook changes later more than when they are first implemented – so that shouldn’t give us more concerns since Facebook knows how to deal with its users for long, even if it is to share their privacy without permission. 🙂

But those apps will still be accessible via a secondary tab for those whose interest is to have a nicely designed fan page apart from the timeline one.

Before, Facebook was known to be a MySpace look-alike with its band sites that looks almost like the formal but Facebook now want people to know the differences between the two social platform – MySpace vs. Facebook Infographic tells us more on that.

But as we’re emphasizing more on the negative effects of the Timeline Fan Page design for artists and others , let me quickly show you some other nice and interesting features that this new Facebook changes presents for you – if you an artist or facebook page owner.

Features of the Facebook Timeline Fan Page Design:

  • Ability to sticky your posts on your Timeline’s homepage for the whole week even when you are posting new updates. The new updates will go to the bottom of the one that was fixed to the top of the timeline which mean; people will see what you choose to be fixed more often and increase result more than before when an updates will be sent to the down side of the page.
  • Display more posts to your followers with right and left side display that makes the user have good facebook experience.

For those who are more familiar with the normal scrolling type of facebook fan page designs, March 30th will mark the day for a switch and hope many of you will like the new design.

Have a wonderful day. And do you still remember that Techatlast 2012 Contest is still on? We’re giving away whole lots of wonderful gifts and prizes to the contestants. You should join the contest by clicking here.

    Facebook timeline is a wonderful feature.At first it seems a little disgust among the users but now many users accepted the feature as it gives the storyline view to the users also to the organization to easily recognize about the person. Hope it is good to have this feature also for the brand pages.

    Hi Olawale

    I’m really not a fan of the Facebook timeline. Although it is a good idea to look back over your life in 3 or 4 years time and see a “scrapbook” of your past photos and updates, it doesn’t really work as well as some of the newer social networks such as Pinterest and Twitter. I loved Facebook when it first launched, it was simple and wasn’t bloated – something that helped it succeed over its then big competitor – MySpace. To me, the Facebook developers need to remove the frills and make it simple again.

    Facebook timeline is the biggest change that has been bought and it replaces the mere fundamental of the Facebook i.e. The Wall. Although there are mixed reactions but i think overall it is going to be a success due to the sheer magnitude of facebook.
