Just last year, Facebook launched the parent/child relationship manager, giving companies and brands the opportunity to manage all of their individual locations or franchises. The addition of the parent/child relationship manager had marketers, agencies, and brand managers the world over scratching their heads — if we could connect all of our pages so intricately within a franchise, why couldn’t we do the same internationally? As of Oct. 17, brands that have global presences can officially stop scratching their heads: Facebook announced the rollout of global pages, allowing brands to seamlessly establish one centralized, global identity.
Every now and then, Facebook holds an event called f8, where it presents developers and entrepreneurs with the social network’s latest and greatest. At last year’s f8 in San Francisco, Facebook announced timeline to the world. According to AllThingsD, there won’t be an event this year, although Facebook will neither confirm nor deny this.
Many Facebook users are still angry with the site for implementing timeline. They’re not alone. According to TechRadar, a Chinese Pinterest-like site — Cubic Network — has sued Facebook, claiming that the company stole the idea for timeline.
Media companies are continuing to embrace Facebook, but based on raw data released by celebrity news site Wetpaint Entertainment, they might want to step up their efforts even more.
