Facebook today has announced a major redesign in the way Pages operate. These changes are meant to improve the experience for creators and public figures. Perhaps the biggest change of all is the removal of the Like button. Instead of Likes, Pages will now be focused on the number of Followers to give a clear idea of their userbase.
Facebook also added a dedicated News Feed for Pages. This will let Page owners and public figures join conversations and engage with their fans more directly. Pages will also see suggestions of other Pages and public figures on their news feed as well as about trending topics and more. People can also see the comments of pages they follow on top of posts in their news feed. People now also have the ability to follow pages directly from the comments section and recommended posts.
A new Q&A format is also added to let pages engage with their audience. Followers can ask questions about certain topics the Page owners might know about. Page Owners/Admins will be able to switch between their pages and personal profiles as well. Other details such as bios and posts will now be more visible to people as well.
Facebook also says that it has also bolstered the safety and integrity features for Pages to clamp down on hate speech, violence, sexual or spammy content, and impersonation. There have been improvements in Page Management Tools as well.
