Effective August 23rd, well yesterday, there are some major changes to Facebook Fan Pages. Here’s a quick run down:
- The maximum width requirement for fan pages is now 520px.
- The boxes tag will be removed
How does this effect you, the Facebook user? If you have a page for your business, you will have to make changes to it. During the week of August 23rd, Facebook will automatically be implementing this change. That means that if you have a graphic page layout that is WIDER than the new width of 520 PX it will be truncated or rendered in such a way that it is basically useless.
Take this for example:
So, let everyone know – Facebook Fan Pages must now be 520PX wide and no wider – at least until Facebook decides to change again…
Today, I worked on a new graphic design for an AMAZING client. She is Sandra De Freitas from Wordpress Blog Sites. I have had the wonderful joy of working for her on many projects, including this one.
A new graphic was created for a Facebook Fan Page. (This isn’t the complete graphic, just a snippet until I get feedback from the client)
As you may or may not know, the graphics are created the same but to add the code to Facebook, you must use FBML (that will be another post). So, the graphic is completed – now I’m just waiting on approval!
In an effort to show potential clients the BROAD range of skills I have, I am starting a daily ‘what I’m doing’ post.
Today, I had the usual struggle to dive back into work after a week off on the Washington Coast (like to see some pictures, click here). Once I got started, I got quite a bit accomplished.
Long-time client, Beartooth Kawasaki (www.beartoothkawasaki.com) needed the annual product updates done to their various websites. It takes a bit of time but it’s enjoyable because I have been doing it for many years.
Skills required on this particular job include an understanding and ability to code in PHP, as well as HTML and CSS, image manipulation and attention to detail.
