Wednesday I noticed Google doing something cool with search and my RSS feeds. Today, I’ve seen a “new” take on the settings for fan pages on Facebook. One of the drawbacks of social media tools is that since you don’t really have much of a monetary investment, they can change things on the fly whenever they want. Facebook tends to do it without much notification (read: “surprise!”). So when I see little tweaks, I’m curious of the how/why/when.
If you click on “Settings” under the entry box, you can select how you see a page Wall – either the wall posts, or wall posts and posts from others, or just the others minus wall posts from the page. For me on Wednesday, this was actually my view everywhere – you didn’t have to click “Settings” to see it.
Then Thursday morning, this page has “Everyone” or just the page’s posts. I think this is a cleaner design, but I’d like to have “everyone except” so that the peruser can see what others are saying without the input of the wall.
It’s not everywhere, just something I noticed. Hoping this means the overall overhaul of Fan Pages is going to be implemented sooner rather than later.
