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…
