We talked about on the blog of the changes made by Facebook in the layout of fan pages in 2012 and in 2014 . More recently, in late July 2016, the company launched another new design for the business pages.

The idea of ​​this new version is a cleaner look, that makes the most organized and accessible information to visitors, giving a little more emphasis on the brand.

A spokesman for Facebook said the goal is to introduce a new design for pages on desktop and mobile devices, making it easier for users to learn about and interact with business on Facebook.

Now, you can see three columns:

  • The left column is fixed, then the scroll the page, the user continues to see the logo, name, link to the page of “on” and videos, among other items;
  • In the middle column are the cover photo, weekly insights and posts the timeline;
  • In the right column are the box “about” page of videos, events etc. This column will not appear more ads from other companies, so it does not compete the user’s attention to your company.

The update impacts all Facebook users and demonstrates a company’s attempt to reward brands, giving them, for example, a button Call to Action more visible, allowing them to get more results from your presence on Facebook.

There is no official statement from Facebook about when the updates will be extended to all users, or if this is the final version of the layout. But the main changes that can be seen so far are as follows:
