Facebook Makes Business Page Changes

Facebook Makes Business Page Changes

Facebook has rolled out several new changes to the way we can interact and administer business pages, both improving access to metrics, improving ease of admin and improving search engine results.

1) You can now access all of your pages from a new location. Click Home, then Pages. You can now see ALL of your pages listed along with last update, activity and more. It’s a great and convenient way to look at the high-level engagement metrics for your pages.

2) TAG – You’re It for People: It’s even easier to tag friends in posts. No longer is the @ sign required. Just start typing and the list will pop up. choose from there.

3) TAG – You’re It! for Business: Starting today (5/12), Facebook will allow you to tag business pages in photos. This is a huge step to again improve the engagement between your business and the customer. By tagging, your search engine optimization could be very positively impacted. Right now, Facebook only allows this for pages that are in the brand, product or people category, but will likely roll it out to other categories over time.

How Does This Affect Photo Privacy?

Just remember that your privacy is your responsibility and is reliant on which settings you choose for your account. If a photo post is enabled to “everyone,” then it can appear publicly on the Photos tab of the Page and the Page admins can see it. If it is, published for “only friends”, than the permission will only be granted to your friends to view your photos.
