Facebook streamlines Pages

24 Aug 10

This week Facebook is going ahead with its plans to remove application boxes and application info sections, as well as reduce the width of application tabs to optimise for the new profile and Facebook Pages format.

In a Facebook blog update, the company said, “Starting on August 23rd, we'll be simplifying your Page to make it easier to browse.”

The firm will do this via two specific changes. “Based on feedback from developers, we have committed to the following plans to ensure a smooth transition,” said Product Marketing Manager, Fran Larkin.

Boxes
We will notify users via messaging in profile boxes and in the Help Center that the "Boxes" tab, boxes on profiles and Pages, and application info sections will be going away.

Application Tabs
Next week, we will give Page admins the ability to preview their custom tabs in the new 520 pixel width so they can modify their layouts as needed. All profile and Page tabs will be resized automatically beginning the week of August 23rd.

“These updates are designed to simplify navigation for users, reduce complexity for developers, and enable us to build the next generation of tools for growing your business with Facebook,” added Larkin.
