How to change the Custom Tab Images on Your New Facebook Page Timeline

Edit Page Tab Settings in FacebookIn the new Timeline format for Pages on Facebook, some of the application images that show up underneath the large cover photo can be customized. It is really a great idea to customize those images to match your website and page Timeline. These images need to have already been created (either by you or your graphic designer), and then they can be uploaded into Facebook. Here’s a quick video on how to change the images on your custom tabs in your new Facebook Page Timeline.

UPDATE 4-28-2012:
I need to make a clarification on some of the apps. I believe I said it very briefly in the video, but let me give more detail here.

The Facebook standard apps (including Photos, Likes, Events, Videos (those loaded directly in Facebook, not YouTube), Map, and Notes) will NOT allow you to change the image that shows in the tab. As I understand it:

  • Photos will always show a thumbnail of the last photo you upload,
  • Events will show the image associated with the last event you posted (if any),
  • Likes will always show the thumbs up, and
  • Notes will a snapshot of your last note.

Only Custom Apps (those added to your Facebook Page) can have Custom Tab Images. I hope that clears things up a bit! Read more >>

Turning off E-mail Notifications for Event Postings in Facebook

Mar 20, 2012   //   by Raylene   //   Blog, Facebook  //  Comments Off on Turning off E-mail Notifications for Event Postings in Facebook

Have you ever RSVP’d (Joined) an event in Facebook, and then started getting hundreds of e-mails about the event? The default settings in Facebook include sending an e-mail notification to you every time someone posts to the wall of the event that you’ve joined. So, if someone posts a comment on the Event page saying, “Nope, I can’t come. Thanks for the invite,” you’ll receive an e-mail notification letting you know they posted, even if you don’t know who they are, or that they were invited to the event.

If you’re like most people, you will want to turn OFF all those notifications, especially if you have joined a particularly busy or chatty event. Here’s a quick video explaining how to change the notification settings, specifically in Events, so that you don’t receive e-mails that you don’t want! Read more >>

Switch to Using Facebook as a Page

pages on FacebookOne of the best features I have found about Facebook Pages is that they have an identity of their own. A Facebook Page can therefore use certain functions in Facebook like a regular person can, and that creates opportunities to increase your page’s visibility as you interact on other Facebook Pages as your page.

This quick screencast will show you how to make the switch from personal profile to using Facebook as a Page.

With the upcoming changes to Facebook Pages, effective March 30th, we’re hosting a training session to help make the switch from the old format to the new Timeline format. We had originally scheduled the training for this coming Thursday, March 15th, but we’ve moved it back to March 29th. The information on how best to use the new Timeline format is still coming out every day, and we want to be sure to provide the most complete and helpful information possible BEFORE everything is automatically converted.

The training session on Thursday, March 29th will include 2 parts:

  • 1:00-2:30pm – Information Session: How to make the switch from Old format to new Timeline for Pages including strategies for how to use the new format.
  • 2:30-4pm – Basic Technical Help Session: we will be available to help you make the transition on your page.

Bring your laptop to follow along during the Information Session, and to start the process of converting to the New Timeline format during the Basic Technical Help Session.

All Facebook Pages will convert to Timeline on March 30th, 2012.
