Facebook Timeline for Brands and Pages – A closer Look and Implications

You likely heard that this week Facebook finally rolled out the Timeline feature for Corporate Brand Pages – essentially the “Page” equivalent of the familiar Timeline view that you’ve likely become familiar with. I promptly converted our own GISuser Page (facebook.com/GISusers) to Timeline and started snooping around. Overall I’m not really a huge fan of Timeline. I find the overall look to feel a little more cluttered, although the large banner image feature is sort of cool (people love photos and images) ,  and the Admin panel is kind of handy. Besides these features though I have to wonder, why would any brand be excited about timeline? I’m still on the fence about the merits of a chronological fb page, however, thanks to my friend @whatleydude for pointing me to an interesting Slideshare that helps to provide some answers. Enjoy the slideshare… What’s your take on Timeline for Pages? Feel free to ping me @gletham or on facebook – see this slideshow on slideshare
