Discover recent Facebook Changes at Lanarkshire New Media Breakfast

While we have been preparing for our second ever Lanarkshire New Media Breakfast, Making The Most of Facebook Timeline Pages for Business, we realised that it has been almost a year since we last delivered a New Media Breakfast on Facebook!

The last time we focused solely on Facebook was back in April 2012 - and it is frightening how much has changed in that time!

Like last time, the breakfast will highlight the many features of Facebook Pages and explore the ways that you can take advantage of the timeline layout to promote your business and encourage people to join your community.

However, we will also take a look at lots of new features that Facebook has introduced in the past year, including Promoted Posts, Sponsored Stories and Targeted Videos.

On top of that, we will also discuss the Facebook Pages Manager which is now available for all devices, and the newly released Graph Search, which can make it easier for people to discover and learn more about your business.

Another important change is the ‘20% Text Rule’, which limits the amount of text that can be contained in graphics used for business page cover photos and ads.

Of course, we will also look at the following:
  • Branding 
  • Tabs and iFrame Pages 
  • Using the timeline 
  • Liking, Commenting, Sharing and Tagging 
  • Photos and Video 
  • Syndicating content to your page 
  • Insights 
  • SEO
The functionality within Facebook pages is often overlooked with many organisations missing the massive opportunities it presents to engage with their community and share the important facts about their business.

With all these changes over the past year, we think it would be extremely beneficial for you and your business to refresh your memory and find out how to promote your page and grow your community.

On top of that, it will also give you the opportunity to visit Lanarkshire Business and Conference Centre, which is a fantastic venue in the heart of Cumbernauld College.

We are also keen to answer any questions you may have about the new Facebook Pages or, Facebook in general so, please feel free to send us any questions in advance to or post them as a comment on the blog or on the New Media Breakfast Facebook page.
