Did you know that there were specific pages on Facebook that were just about your relationships with friends? If this comes as news to you, don’t fret, most people didn’t even know this feature existed.  This feature has actually been around since 2010, however, Facebook has recently given this page a few very helpful upgrades to improve functionality and overall appearance.

To see the friendship page you share with anyone else, go to their profile page. Then click the gear button on the right, next to “Message,” to reveal a menu with a list of options; Friendship page is the one you want. Once you access this information, you will be able to see every interaction between you and your friend.

This feature is being introduced by Facebook to users in their typical fashion, so if you don’t have it just yet, it should start showing up in the next few days.

What do you think about Facebook collecting this massive amount of information about you and your interactions? Are you aware that your information and personal life can be out there for the public eye? Have a look at our previous post about privacy settings to ensure that you’re sharing only to those you choose to share with.

Just as you were getting used to the new and improved Facebook Timeline, more changes are coming. Facebook has announced that on March 30, 2012, all Facebook pages will be converted to the Timeline format.

This new timeline layout allows page admins to do away with landing pages and focus on the stylish banner image and profile pic, which should provide for some interesting branding and design ideas.

According to Gokul Rajaram, Facebook’s product director for ads,  “The goal is to make Pages more engaging and more social”.

Another benefit for page administrators is the new insights integration.  Facebook had already introduced the new Insights for pages, but this takes it the step further by providing detailed information right at your fingertips.

Additionally, Facebook has finally listented to many users requests and added the private message feature.  Now, pages will be able to respond to private messages from their fans, in the same way as a user profile does.

Sounds great right? Well you’ve got until March 30, 2012 to get ready, but don’t wait.  CKR Media Consulting can help you optimize your page to get the most out of the new Facebook layout.  Contact us today for a free quote!
