Facebook announces new mobile layout
Dubai, April 24, 2013
With millions of people visiting Facebook Pages, and almost half accessing them from their mobile phones, the social media giant has announced a new mobile Pages layout, tailored to the way people look for information on their mobile devices.
A Page is a business’ identity on Facebook and with the new layout, current and prospective customers will find the new design easier to interact with their Pages in a way that is both efficient and useful, said a statement from Facebook.
"The design improvements benefit will be for the regular user and for Page owners. For the regular user, the design improvements to mobile Pages will include a cleaner, simpler look, with better Page layouts for mobile viewing, more relevant information up front so people can see the information they care about such as location and contact information at a glance," it stated.
The new layout will also offer users streamlined and prominent ways to interact with Pages, including actions such as Like, Call, Message, and Share, all of which now appear at the top of Pages.
The significant improvements to the mobile pages will offer Page owners higher-appearing pinned posts, where admins can pin important posts (including offers or videos) from their desktops or mobile devices. These posts in the new layout are now front and center when Pages are accessed on mobile devices, said the statement.
Also easier mobile management will be offered, to allow Page owners the ability to easily switch between public and admin views directly from their mobile Pages/devices, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
