Facebook Timeline. We’ve brought you lots of information on how to get started with it and how Timeline changes the Facebook Fan Page design. We’ve even shared some of our favorite FanBridger Cover Photos.
Now it’s time for us to make Timeline better.
The FanBridge Fan Page Creator is now optimized for Timeline. No, we didn’t just make it wider. The entire page is redesigned to better fit the Timeline format and highlight your content.
What’s New for your Facebook Fan Page Design:
A Header Image w/ Featured Module
Want your custom tab to blend better with Timeline? Add your Cover Photo to your FanBridge page. This doubles as the space for your featured module, too. Pick one module to highlight at the top and grab fan attention immediately. Any module can be featured, so your page is customizable for exactly what you need to feature.
Buttons for joining the fan list and sharing the page have been moved to a sidebar to better pull in fans’ attention. Below these buttons, we’ve added a section that displays friends who’ve already Liked the page. Research has shown that when you show people their friends already like something, they are much more likely to like it themselves.
Your page should look like your page. Choose from a light or dark color scheme to start, but then add your own highlight color for buttons and module components. If you’d prefer a solid background instead of the Timeline Cover Photo for the header, you can disable disable the cover photo and just go with a solid background.
Updated Audio Player
The Super Audio Player has been redesigned to better fit pages and provoke more social activity between fans. Each track has two buttons – a flame and a shopping cart. The shopping cart takes the fan to a link (of your choosing) to purchase the track. The flame opens a social drawer to allow fans to comment on each individual track and share on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. We’ll have an entire post dedicated to all the great new features of the new Super Audio Player later this week.
We love the FanBridge logo, but it’s more important to us that your page look like YOUR page. Timeline lets you add a custom image for each box at the top of your page. Since everyone can’t be a graphic designer or photoshop master, we’ve added a set of icons that can be used as your box icon. They’re generic enough to fit every page yet clearly show the content you’ve chosen to feature. Want to save a little time? You can change the tab name and move it to the first open box spot all on the same settings page, too.
