Your Facebook Cover and New Reply in Comments

We’re all abuzz about two Facebook changes.  Here’s my favorite explanations of both. Enjoy.

Mari Smith (affiliate of Social Web Learning) has a great article on her blog:

Facebook Relaxes Page Cover Image Rules: Use This Tool to Test 20% Rule

 Mari is also featured in this Socially Stacked article 4 Ways To Start Building a Community on Facebook as the way to do this right.

Caroline Jones at Useful Graphic Design Tutorials (I’m one of their student followers) explains how the 20% text rule appears in Facebook Ads:

Reply Feature in Comments:

If you’re not following Wong Ching Ya‘s Blog, you’re missing interesting articles and ideas.  Here’s an example about Facebook’s Reply Feature in comments which has just rolled out in the last few days.

Text from Wong Ching Ya’s Facebook post:

“Have you got threaded comments on your page yet? Not yet for mine but I found this option from ‘Edit Page’ -> ‘Manage Permissions’, if you’d like to get the feature enabled just tick the box as shown below. I tried but still nothing for me yet. Waiting patiently. Some pages already long gotten this, how about you?”

I had fun learning about these changes and most have their feature enabled by now.  If you haven’t enabled your replies, try this suggestion.  Now you can enjoy all the buzz.

Leave a comment and let me know how you’re using this new information, if you like the changes and how long you think it will be before these are replaced by yet another change from Facebook.
