Key Benefits of Facebook Timeline for Brand FanPages

Everyone who is active on Facebook must be aware of the ‘Timeline’ feature for personal profiles. Launched in September last year, the Timeline function has transformed the way people share stuff with their friends on Facebook. It enables a user to tell his/her Facebook journey in a chronological fashion. But this amazing feature was only limited to profiles and could not be applied on brand and community pages.

However, considering the immense success of ‘Timeline’ interface, Facebook is planning to apply it on brand/community pages as well. After revealing Facebook Insights for social media monitoring, Timeline is Facebook’s attempt to make profiles, and now brands and communities, appear more realistic. It enables them to reveal their existence, origins and history. In short, Timeline tells a story. So when a person views a timeline, they experience a “storyteller feel”. Previously, businesses could not share their brand journey with their fans. But with the new Timeline feature, it enables an admin to tell his/her brand’s journey.


Key Benefits of Timeline for Brands:

The Facebook Timeline feature for brand Fanpages has been introduced to give companies an interactive and resourceful interface. Check out the key benefits that it has to provide for businesses:
