Facebook has begun pushing out a new design of Pages to some users. Despite the site going down for many earlier today, some users found a new page design when things came back on.
The new design, which is pictured below, resembles the design of many other products including the new Facebook profile. This isn’t exactly surprising news for active page administrators, as Facebook has made it pretty well known that they would soon push out a new Page design which is consistent with the rest of the site. Overall, the design looks similar to Facebook Places, which some page administrators have already made the mistake of merging.
For those of you who haven’t merged your Facebook Page with a place yet, think twice before you do. Once you make the shift there is no turning back. While the new Pages design is not out for all users yet, we’re assuming that they will be visible to most users in the near future. We’ll reach out to Facebook to see if we can get some additional information about this change. What do you think of the new Pages design?
