I attended two webinars on Friday about the new Facebook timeline format for pages. By now you’ve likely heard that Facebook will be rolling out this new(est!) format on March 30, 2012 for all Facebook pages. By now I’m used to “new” formats on Facebook and Twitter (and YouTube and beyond) – I don’t think the upgrades will ever go away. Just like a website should be fluid and always in the process of one update or another, changes in functionality and usability are just a part of the online (mobile, appified, etc.) world we live in. Instead of getting frustrated or overwhelmed, I try to approach the upgrades as just that – upgrades.
I’ve been talking to several people recently about setting up a Facebook fan page, how to get more fans, and how to use Facebook effectively. Full disclosure: Yes, I have a Facebook page, but it’s private. I use Twitter and LinkedIn for business, but I haven’t set up a page for my copywriting business. However, I DO run a Facebook page for the same nonprofit that I mentioned in a recent post on email marketing . It’s performing well, averaging 50 new fans a day.

We recently interviewed Buddy Media , an incredibly successful SaaS platform for brand’s Facebook Pages, claiming 8 out of the 10 top global advertisers as clients. Today, Buddy Media announced its latest research compiled by analyzing all Facebook Wall posts, “Likes” and comments from the Buddy Media Platform by more than 200 of their clients during the two week period between January 30, 2011 – February 12, 2011. The results were then analyzed and the resulting strategies are essential tips for brands to create effective Facebook Wall posts. “Brands and agencies are always looking to communicate more effectively with their fans on Facebook, and we have the tools and research to help them do just that.

UPDATE 22APR09: This has all changed yet again. I’m leaving the bulk of this here for historic purposes so scroll to the update section at the bottom. Ever want to use the RSS feed from your Facebook status? Well, this is ridiculously harder to find than it should be so I thought I’d do a quick post. Note, this for the ‘new’ Facebook. Things changed a while ago and instructions found elsewhere no longer work.

Alison Driscoll is an interactive copywriter and social media consultant who specializes in . She authors a blog at alisondriscoll.com . Not even a year ago, Facebook was still being dismissed as a silly site intended to help college kids slack off.

Companies of all sizes are scrambling to get on the site and reach both new and current customers with a Facebook Page, the Facebook preferred method for user interaction with a brand, company or public figure. An effective Facebook Page not only attracts fans, but is sticky so that fans keep coming back and may even share the content on the Page.
