At the end of February, Facebook introduced the Timeline layout for personal profile pages. Now that the Timeline layout is set to roll out for Facebook business pages on March 30, it’s important to prepare your brand for the changes.
There has also been numerous tweets linked to great tips on how to make the changes for TimeLine to be optimised…
Facebook is changing for businesses, check this out about the new timeline changes safe-url.org/45v0
By John P. Mello Jr., PCWorld Mar 21, 2012 11:17 AM Under the guise of creating greater clarity–sound familiar?–Facebook continues its data-grabbing ways under a revision of its rights and responsibilities policy set to take effect after close of business on Friday, according to one privacy advocate.
Not all are convinced:
Facebook’s new proposed “data use” policy still needs work re applications’ access to info of people not using apps. #privacy
And with the FB TimeLine coming into play, it may be a good time to check those privacy settings on your account again. Developers may also find it interesting that rights will not EXCLUDE extraction of source code from downloadable software:
Facebook has proposed several changes to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and is asking the public for feedback until March 22nd. The most important changes are the prohibition of extracting source code from its downloadable software, and a clear explanation that friends can share your information through applications.
Despite – or maybe because! of changes – we can expect that brands will more and more take on opportunities to develop applications and will find the resources to do so online. (I heard today of a brand that have to re-do their entire application after it was removed by FaceBook)….
Facebook : Total number of of active applications: 550,000 plus and growing daily #socialmediaa2z socialmediaa2z.org
Timeline is an iteration of the user’s Facebook profile, revealed at f8 2011.
In the final analysis, it will be up to the users of FaceBook to determine value – like in all other business, it will have to deliver meaningful content or functionality. Or, #death by removal. After all, it is a click away.
I really should remove some applications from my Facebook. I’m ALWAYS getting ‘Notifications’ which aren’t even Noteworthy! #facebookwoes
