So this morning I woke up to some changes on Facebook! My personal profile is totally the same, but my Page is totally different! Wait, whaaaaatttttt????
As you can see, my small photo, name of my page and user name are all on the left. What the heck? All the buttons are off my cover photo and the “Like” button has gone missing. Ohhhhh I see it now, on the left in a small white box. Yea like that really encourages my visitors to “Like” my page.
The “Sign Up” button is still there but has moved down and off the cover image. Ok so now the “Twilight Zone” song is going through my head and I feel like I’m traveling in another dimension because after talking to a couple of colleagues, it turns out they are not seeing these changes.
Interestingly enough, I am not seeing these changes to just my pages. I checked a few other pages and they look like mine! Here are a couple examples…..
So the issue is what I’m seeing on Facebook and not Facebook running some interface test on my pages as originally thought when I chatted with Winston over at Facebook operations.…..
I checked on various groups and of course, other profiles, and what I am seeing is strictly limited to “Pages” in Facebook. I will say this, I sort of like the new layout. I love not having the small profile image on the cover photo and I also like not having all those buttons and names covering up my cover photo. It makes it look cleaner and if I am ever running a promotion, this gives me so much more room for information and images in that area.
So what do you think? Do you like what you see? Are you seeing what I see? I know Facebook likes to make changes but this is kind of freaking me out. Especially since no one else seems to be seeing what I see! Could it somehow be related to “user error” like my husband always says? Let me know in the comments and for sure share this in case other Facebook users are experiencing the same issue.
