6 Things You Didn’t Know About Facebook Pages

1. Pin Posts to the Top of Your Profile

You can “pin” a recent post to the top of your profile. The tool is useful for highlighting content you want people to notice straight away. On the post you want to promote, click on the Pencil icon on the top-right, then select Pin to Top. That post will remain at the top of your timeline for seven days, or until you pin another post.

2. Reposition Photos

Reposition photos you’ve posted to ensure they look as great as possible when people are browsing your timeline. Click the Pencil edit icon on a post. Select the Reposition Photo option and move the image around within the frame. Hit Save when you’re happy with how it looks.

3. Turn Off Messaging

We love the new ability that allows people to message brands. But if it’s not relevant to your page, you can disable it. Go to Edit Page on the Admin Panel at the top of your display, then select Update Info and Manage Permissions. Now look for the Message option. If you want to remove the messaging function, uncheck the box next to Show “Message” button on [Your Brand].

4. Share Other Facebook Pages to Your Profile

If you want to highlight other pages related to your brand, you can “Share” them to your brand’s profile. Head to the page you want to share and click the Cog icon on the top-right. Click Share and you can post a link to the page, along with any comment, to your brand’s timeline.

5. Create a Poll

Did you know you can ask your page followers questions? The really handy poll feature is built into the timeline design. To create a poll, click on the Event, Milestone + option in the Status box at the top-left of your profile. Choose Question. You can ask an open-ended question, or if you click on Add Poll Options, you can provide set answers on which people can vote.

6. Highlight Posts

If you want to make certain posts more noticeable, highlight them. This means they stretch across the double width of your timeline. To do this, hit the Star icon on the top-right of the post you want to enlarge — it will then become highlighted. To change a post back to normal size, or to make a Milestone post smaller (as these are automatically highlighted), click the Star icon again to Remove from Highlights.
