Facebook is implementing a new Facebook Pages interface that will, among other aspects, delete the “like” count, have a simpler and more readable style, and make it easy for people who run the Pages to access and handle it. This and other apps were originally reviewed on the mobile app with a limited number of public figures, but are now being extended to a larger community of Websites. The cultural personalities currently interested in the study include performers, writers, producers, and a limited number of advertising outlets, such as bands and books. When used in the study, as they are logging in on desktop, the Pages will see an opportunity to opt-in and check out the new interface. Facebook claims a limited number of English-language business sites are widening the program as well.
The revised interface and feature set was designed to make Pages less difficult to use, something the organization recognizes can be a challenge. This also understands the need to ease the usage of Pages today, with too many people opting to practice social distancing and preferring to link to their groups online instead.
The new web redesign is meant to make it easy for website users to see important details, such as profiles and updates on the Web. Notably, with the Page Likes and the Like click, the interface does away. Instead, only a Follow button and list of followers will appear on the Tab.
This move more accurately represents the true scope of the Website. Throughout the years, many users “liked” numerous websites, but instead unfolded them from their News Feed because they exceeded their value. (Or they did not follow them because they just liked the Page as a favor after, for example, submitting a request.) The Follows count, meanwhile, reveals how many users currently get the update of the Page in their News Feed.
Using two choices lead to a more complex method where people “heart” a website first, which produces an instant follow-up. But the individual may then adjust their settings at any time to go back out of the following. This is frustrating and unhelpful for page owners as they want to communicate with fans who are genuinely interested in the website and its contents.
Furthermore, by searching their News Feed, page owners will be able to easily communicate with followers and move quickly between their own Facebook profile and the public-facing account (or pages) they run anytime they want to update or respond to posts they find.
They should be able to grant and handle admin control permissions more explicitly on the Account Management side, depending on different activities. This should be done by an improved “Edit Control” screen where owners can turn different management activities on and off, such as who can generate page content, send direct messages as the user, create advertisements, react to comments, and more.
Additionally, the redesign aims to make getting to the Web Analysis segment simpler, which is where website owners and administrators monitor metrics related to the success of the Post.
Today, from the Site itself or just directly from a message, website owners would be able to get those observations. Users will also gain access to a range of recently introduced updates inside the Updates segment, including top-performing posts and a new measure showing the Page’s following correlation with its Instagram account linked.
