What Does the Upcoming Facebook Redesign Mean for Your District’s Page?

Get ready for the griping from your Facebook friends – another redesign is on its way over the next few weeks.

Facebook is promoting some features that should be good for your district’s page:

  • People will be able to look at different feeds, including a “following” feed. This one will show them posts by pages they follow, including yours. This might help you recapture the attention of followers who haven’t looked at your page in a while. If followers engage with your content in this feed, Facebook is more likely to show it to them in their regular feed.
  • Your photos, which are usually your most engaging content, will be more prominent.
  • When someone likes your page, your cover photo will show up in the post that appears in the feeds of that person’s friends.
  • Even the most change-averse folks on Facebook should find this change a bit easier because it will be familiar — the new design looks like the current design of Facebook’s mobile app.

  1. Thanks for this, Nicole. I like the page feed idea but I am not sure how I feel about photos being bigger. I love to use photos with my posts but sometimes they already seem too large to me. I try to approach their changes with an open mind. With Facebook, we’re never bored, that’s for sure!
