Timeline Cover Page Apps

  • Apps have been relocated from the left navigation sidebar to the right side of the About section. They appear with thumbnail photos instead of as text links.  There are four app tiles above the fold, and the first is permanently occupied by Photos. These apps are strategic as they can include Likes, Videos, Events, Map and a Page’s custom apps.
  • Previously, Pages could set a default landing tab that all non-fans would first see instead of the wall when they visited a Page. This is no longer allowed. Instead, users always see the main Timeline view and have to actively click through to custom apps. This means custom apps can be used for your contests, promotions, games, media, coupons, and signup widgets for a landing page.
  • To edit which apps you display, click the drop-down icon to the right of the tiles, click the ‘+’ button to import your custom apps, and then hover over them and click the pencil to swap them around. I highly recommend putting your custom apps most crucial to your business above the fold.  This will grab your viewers attention to coupons for ecommerce brands, contests for consumer packaged good companies, events for promoters, etc.
