The Facebook Changes They Didn’t Tell You About

Have you noticed that the photo section of your Facebook business page is now dominated by your photo and video section? Have you noticed that your posts are now buried below this content?

Facebook has introduced templates that can be selected based on user or administrator needs in the Edit Page section of your Facebook page. There are layout templates customized for business, shopping, venues, politicians, professional services and restaurants. By default, your page is set as “Standard”.

Here’s how to change your page’s template to make it more effective:

1. From your business page, click “Settings”

4. Under Templates click “Edit” — there you’ll have the option to choose from a business, professional services, shopping, standard, venues, politicians or a restaurants & cafes template.


This section also provides the option to reorganize the tabs on your Facebook business page. Click and drag a tab name to rearrange the order. The tab order also determines the order of the sections people see at the top of your Page.


Facebook changes can be subtle and leave us a little mind boggled. If something changes, pursue the backend “Edit Page” options. Chances are there will be a way to make adjustments to these new changes.
