Facebook Templates Blog.

Facebook are rolling out a change which means you can choose how your page will appear to your visitors based on what you are using it for.  Facebook templates seem to be rolling out in a fairly random way.  To find out whether your page has them, you need to manually check.

To see the new Facebook templates, click Settings on the top right of your page.

In this image it shows the top of a Facebook profile where you will access settings.

Then click Edit page.

If you have the new settings, you will be able to choose Templates.

This image shows how the new settings will appear. This will determine whether you are able to currently access the new Facebook templates.

There are a number of pre-made templates including

  • Standard
  • Shopping
  • Venues
  • Gaming
  • Politicians
  • Professional Services
  • Restaurants & Cafes

Each template shows different default tabs along the side of the Page page and different buttons under the Cover Photo. The layouts might also affect what is shown in the middle column you could show videos or events at the top.  We have noticed that it wasn’t until we chose the Shop template that we got the option to create a shop tab on one of the pages we are managing.

Once you have chosen a template, the tabs and buttons will automatically change.  However, you can still reorder the tabs.  It is interesting to note that at the moment the buttons are all the same.  Perhaps this will change in time.

What do you think?  Have you implemented a template?
