Dasha Bushmakin, a connection from LinkedIn, asked for an assist on changing the landing page on Facebook.  I’m presuming here we’re talking about the Facebook Page landing tabs, and I’ve made some screenshots to show how it is done, because unless you’re reading books on Facebook Pages, it isn’t that easy to find.  Her question is:

New Facebook Layout and Landing Pages

Has anyone had any experience with changing the landing page with the new FB layout? Any advice would be greatly appreciated:)

Starting with “Pages You Admin”

click on the page you want to set, look just under the status line (where you can  post status updates, Add Photos, Add a Link, or a Video)  You’ll see on the far right a link to “Options”.

If you click “Options” you’ll see “Settings” revealed.


And if you then click “Settings” you’ll see a whole world of choices (well, new choices you might not have  known you had) as seen in the screenshot below:

Use this to get your “Like” button pushed by new visitors:

I have mine set on the tab I’ve named “Welcome” because I want everyone who comes to my Facebook Page to see the request for them to “Like” my page.

After they have liked my page, they’ll see a sort of mini-pitch of the work I do, and then they can choose from any of the tabs to move around and see what else is there.

We’ve decided to make this an ongoing project – answering LinkedIn Questions,

or questions entered in the comments section. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, and it isn’t always possible to post them in original forums.

If you have questions about this, or any other Facebook Admin issue, do post them here, and we’ll respond as quickly as we can.
