I know that we posted about this on the day that they made the change, but it’s only today that I’ve had the time to get stuck in and have a little mess about with the changes myself.

Despite Amanda being a genuine Facebook wizard (and I’m not so bad myself), we’ve been waiting for these changes before really working on our own page – hopefully as a showcase of some ideas that you can use on your own. BTW, please, please go and ‘like’ it now as we’ll be doing some stuff there that you’ll want to see. Here’s our Page – http://www.facebook.com/MakeitinMusic

So, we started messing about today and we’re loving it. I think it’s a massive step forward for the interaction available that you can now do as ‘the Page’, or, as a musician, ‘the Band’.

In particular, being able to leave comments and threads as ‘your Page’ will really allow you to spread your brand across Facebook. Don’t spam – just do the same things that you would with your personal profile.

And the iframe option – I’m horribly bad at tech stuff but ‘my people’ tell me that this is a game changer and will mean that what we can do on Pages and in making Apps is going to explode.

Good stuff!

So, other than the links we gave in that post linked above we found this one that has a great list of ten things that you should do now to set your new Fan Page up right.

Facebook announced a massive overhaul of its Pages for business today, and here’s the most surprising part: It’s awesome.

Don’t listen to the angry mobs complaining about change. Today’s shift is overwhelmingly positive and creates much-needed options for Page admins.

That said, you’ve got some work to do if you want to make the most if it. We’ve compiled 10 simple steps that will get you started on the right foot:

Read and act on that list of 10 steps NOW.
