    Just wondering, will the marketing power of a Facebook fan page be greater or lessened by the latest Timeline requirements?

    I hate how it doesn't have the navigation on the side under the profile picture anymore.

    My experience shows great decrease in fan interaction. Less likes, less wall posts etc. Most people are still not used to the new design, they don't seem to notice the new Like button at all. Also, most of them can't do wall posts simply because they don't see the "Write something" field.

    Hopefully this is going to change once all profiles are upgraded to timeline (which is scheduled for tomorrow).

    phph5 is right, people are not as used to the new pages and are missing a lot of the basic functionality they had learnt with the old design. However, as was said, when everyone is using the design as of 31st March, then at the end of the day it doesn't really matter. You have to adapt or perish!!

    True. The new design is a lot less appealing and is a lot more complicated.
