25 Timeline Ready Apps for Enhancing Your Facebook Page

25 Timeline Ready Apps for Enhancing Your Facebook Page | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Enhance your Facebook Pages with these timeline ready apps. A total of 25 facebook apps to choose from, including BONUS app suggestions to improve fans engagement.


For page managers who know how to work with Facebook apps, the new Timeline layout for Pages is a great opportunity to highlight their application tab for maximum visibility and increase click through rates. But for those who aren’t, finding those timeline ready apps can be a massive headache.


Before adding any facebook applications to your Timeline (layout) page, there are a few things you should know:


  • NOT all facebook applications are suitable for your Page
  • NOT all facebook applications are free
  • Understand the use of each app before installing
  • Understand each approved facebook app WILL HAVE access to a certain amount of your personal data on Facebook
  • Facebook app is an ADDED advantage to achieve a particular purpose you have for your brand (get leads, customer contact info) but certainly NOT a compulsory
  • It’s OK to NOT install any third party apps on your page if you don’t feel like it

Facebook Timeline Profiles May Arrive Soon; But You Could Just Get it Now | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Facebook's Timeline Profile design has still yet to be officially released to the public due to privacy concerns and a trademark dispute, but the latest rumors are that they will be made public on the 19th of October, according to The Next Web.

 

If you don't know what Facebook Timeline is, this remix of an episode of Mad Men, has Don Draper doing a much better job of announcing the new product than Mark Zuckerburg. Either way, Facebook's new profile design is very pretty...

Facebook Timeline to go live October 19th

Facebook Timeline to go live October 19th | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Developers who activate and set up their Facebook Timeline, they are now being told that if they don't choose to publish it now, it will go live on October 19th, 2011.

 

Even if you’re not a Facebook developer there has been a “hack” of sorts in place to become a developer and gain early access to your Facebook timeline, if you didn’t want to sign up and wait.

Is the New Facebook Timeline a Failure in Design? | Jeffbullas's Blog

Is the New Facebook Timeline a Failure in Design? | Jeffbullas's Blog | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Generally people don’t like change!


The majority of us like routine and familiarity. Mess with someone’s habitual routine and watch them start to sweat, stress and squirm.


They also say that a change is as good as a holiday but is all change good?


Facebook’s new timeline is now live on both the personal profiles and pages and it has taken the known and familiar and replaced it with a very new design.


Steve Jobs said in an interview with Wired magazine in 1997 “People think that design is how it looks, but it goes much deeper than that, it is actually how it works”


So does the new Facebook timeline design “work”?


The impact for business is that it needs to evaluate the implications of these changes to ensure that they maintain their engagement and utilise the stronger visual format that the brand “pages” now have.


So the changes are in place and the dust has settled, what are the implications for the managers, administrators and users of the “new”Facebook timeline “page”.

40 Creative Examples of Facebook Timeline Designs | inspirationfeed.com | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Few excellent ideas to give a great design to your Facebook timeline. I'll inspire me, to change my profil in the next couple of days. [note mg]


Recently at the F8 conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced a massive redesign to our favorite* social media website. Honestly The new updates are understandable and from their point of view provide a better experience for the end user.


From personal point of view, each time they implement a change I get more confused while being forced to learn the new layout. When will they leave it alone? I have no idea. Twitter had a major redesign a couple of months ago, and that was easy to learn. Enough ranting, let’s talk about the new Timeline feature.


Facebook Timeline is a unique idea that has been getting some heat lately. Basically speaking it’s a story of your life that is visible to you as well as your friends. With privacy being a widely discussed issue on Facebook, Timeline completely diminishes that case.

Amazing set of features launched by Facebook since Google + launch

Amazing set of features launched by Facebook since Google + launch | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

It’s just over 3 months since Google dropped the bombshell that it was launching their own social network and inevitably the attention immediately switched to Facebook to see what they would do in counter the launch. Facebook were initially quiet but they went in to their famous “Lockdown” phase and started rolling out a whole host of new features many of which were lightly “inspired” by Google +. If anything the launch by Google seems to have helped accelerate the development cycle at Facebook with the main beneficiaries being the end users who are getting an improved service. Whatever way you look at it and despite the fact that Facebook were working on some of this stuff before anyway you can’t but be impressed at the staggering response to the launch of Google + by Facebook…
