Facebook will remove specific Business Page info sections in August
One of the only things consistent about Facebook is the fact it’s always changing, and this week is no different. In one of their most recent shake ups, they’re going to be removing specific information from Facebook Business pages.
This change will take place from August 1st 2019, and it’s up to Social Media managers and Business Page owners to either add this content into different sections or lose it altogether. Boo!
As you can see from the screenshot above, the information we’re going to have to change includes:
- Company overview (why?!)
- Date founded
- Additional information (parking etc)
Reports have suggested that these sections are the least read, but from what we can gather, it does change based on individual pages. For example, a screenshot provided by Mari Smith (and shared by Matt Navarra), shows different sections to the One2create Facebook page.
You could argue that these sections are still relevant, since Facebook is all about the data and want to connect the right businesses with audiences that are going to interact with them most. But who are we to judge?
Facebook are regularly updating their service in a bid to compete with other social media platforms, but we’ll make sure to keep you updated as things progress.
