How are the templates different?
Facebook has developed new Facebook page templates for your Company Page depending on its use. These page templates range from Standard (original) to Business to Shopping. There is a new layout for almost any sort of business, and each template differs by changing the tabs they show on the Page. For example, a Non-Profit template would have a “Donate” tab front and center where people can easily give to your organization.
Is this a good or bad change?
Despite some confusion as to how to change templates, what template to use, and whether the template for your company is the right one, these new templates have been extremely helpful to most companies looking to enhance their Facebook page. Now, tabs fit for a person’s specific needs. Nevertheless, change can be difficult. Now the page’s owner must relearn where everything is placed, what tabs are shown, and what content the audience can see. This can be a big step, especially for businesses with a lot of content, like restaurants and non-profit organizations. Once the change is made though, you can always return to the standard template it was originally on, but who knows, maybe you’ll like it! There’s only one way to find out.
Can I still edit the tabs on my Professional Facebook page?
Once you change the layout of your Page, you also have the option to edit the tabs. Adding, dropping, and changing the tabs on your page gives you the freedom to make your page personal and unique. No more repetitive pages that all look the same! All these changes make us wonder, what will Facebook do next?
