Facebook Updates Artist Pages

image from Facebook has updated artist pages.

The layout is different. The tabs are removed. Users can now "Login as Page" and interact with Facebook. For instance, I can now visit the TED Page and comment on their wall as Hypebot. Or I could "Like" a status update. Pages cannot, however, post on a user's wall or on his or her status. That hasn't changed.

Only when a user has opted for the "everybody" privacy setting can Pages comment on the status updates of individuals. Here's the full rundown:

  • A news feed for your page
  • Notifications when fans interact with your page or posts
  • A place to showcase photos along the top of your page
  • The ability to Like and post on other pages as your page
  • A section to feature the pages you've liked
