I am as excited as I am confused. Today Facebook deactivated my Facebook Fan page without notifying me about it. I naturally republished it, but I can tell from the mere layout of the page edit section that stuff is going on. I all of a sudden couldn’t find my page when searching for it (yes, that’s how I navigate on facebook) and when I published a story on my page, my avatar had changed to a question mark.
After last weeks changes to the user home page, I was waiting for something to happen to Pages as well.
The changes for Facebook Pages I wish for
I surely hope this is all about the pages admin user privileges and icon that I have been hearing rumors about. These changes basically mean that you can choose to either comment with your own profile or with the page profile. This means you can have people staffing your page without them having to work through their normal user icon or through the page logo.
Up until now it has only been possible to work through the brand or page logo which has been quite anonymous and very unpractical.
Also, I would like there to be some kind of functionality that enables “work” profiles on Facebook. This is something which hasn’t been available, but would be highly useful if you are using a Facebook page to do your customer service for example.
I’ll be keeping you updated on all the changes I can find this week.
