Facebook Launches Managing Pages in One Overview

  • Facebook now allows you to see an overview of all the pages you administer. To access this overview, click on the “Pages” tab in the left-hand navigation links on your homepage.

Facebook Deals

Facebook Deals

  • Facebook Deals is similar to Groupon or LivingSocial in that it allows people get deals to use at local businesses.
  • Once a deal is purchased by a user, a post is put on their wall stating they bought a deal and gives a link to the deal.

Facebook Launches Photo Tagging for Pages

  • Pages can be tagged anywhere that a user can view a photo.
  • For now, the only pages that can be tagged are ones that are categorized as Brands & Products or People.
  • Facebook’s example was a lovely coke can being held by a woman.
