At the end of the week on March 30, all of Facebook’s fan pages will convert over to the new Timeline look.
While I wasn’t so sure about the change at first, once I got my page all in place, I felt a little more settled!
In addition to the timeline cover photo (which I just updated a yesterday), I also updated by description on the left, created a button for the DIY Blog Critique Preview (which you get for liking the page) and one for the email list to highlight the mini e-book. You can even change the wording underneath them so I customized those too.
If you want to customize your images or wording, go to Admin Panel>Manage>Edit Page>Apps and then click on Edit Settings for the app you want to edit. You’ll then see a place to change the wording and update the image.
Since Timeline was announced earlier this month, there are plenty of great articles and resources to visit to learn the scoop. So here are 5 pretty slick places to get info and inspiration about Facebook Timeline pages!
What better way to start off than some eye candy? A great place to ooh, aah and perhaps get some great inspiration for your cover photo.

What better place to go than straight to the source? Facebook’s Pages page (heh) has featured brand pages, a useful Help center and more. Worth a peek for sure.
So, tell me! What do you think about the change to Timeline? Have you switched over yet?
