Facebook has changed it business page layouts today. This is quite important for many businesses as the layout change means your page may not be displaying quite correctly.

The following 2 main changes have been made:

Profile Picture and Cover Photo

The profile picture is now located on the left hand side bar. It used to be obscuring the cover photo slightly. This changes means you don’t have to choose a cover photo with a gap for where the profile picture overlaid it.

Tabs

Your business page tabs have also been moved to the left hand side bar, under the profile picture. What’s great about this is that the tabs always stay on the screen when you scroll the page, making sure your visitors can always see them.

Before Photo

After Photo

What does this mean?

They are not major changes, but it does give you the opportunity to think about how you market your tabs now they are always visible and also change your cover photo. It always annoyed me how the profile picture covered the cover photo, but not longer. Small changes but worth knowing about and acting upon!
