Timeline for Fan Page

Facebook makes again major changes and thus introduces the Timeline for Fan Page.

As expected, everyone gets a grace period in which to prepare a new design for fan page. Deadline is March 30, 2012.

Landing tabs lose their utility, but compensates with the possibility to organize the tabs at the top of the page according to priorities.

Considering that Facebook pages for institutions and companies are called Pages the Timelines specific for these accounts are called Timeline Pages. Apparently, the functionality is identical to the timeline of each of us, with some differences, eg for Timeline Pages, the idea of ​​Life Events, now are called Milestones.

Here are some things you should know about Timeline for Facebook pages:
