In the last few months, Facebook users may have noticed that some personal profiles display a timeline instead of the streaming newsfeed we have all grown used to. Now, this will also apply to Facebook brand pages. According to Facebook, this new format will be mandatory on March 30th, so get used to the change.

Many companies have spent a significant amount of time on their landing page. Now, the timeline changes all that. I have not even begun to look at the timeline on my pages, even though I have already changed my personal profile.

There seems to be mixed feelings on this new change, but just as Facebook continues to grow, we have to grow with it. There really is no sense in fighting it. Instead, learn the new format and try to get the most benefit from it.

Since this is the big talk of social media right now, here are what other bloggers are saying about the new fan pages timeline.
