    I just read from my facebook fanpage's upper part (news):



    We announced plans last October to remove application boxes and application info sections as well as reduce the width of application tabs to optimize for the new profile and Facebook Pages format. We will be moving forward with these changes the week of August 23 and want to help you understand what to expect.
    Based on feedback from developers, we have committed to the following plans to ensure a smooth transition:

    * Boxes. We will notify users via messaging in profile boxes and in the Help Center that the "Boxes" tab, boxes on profiles and Pages, and application info sections will be going away.
    * Application Tabs. Next week, we will give Page admins the ability to preview their custom tabs in the new 520 pixel width so they can modify their layouts as needed. All profile and Page tabs will be resized automatically beginning the week of August 23.

    These updates are designed to simplify navigation for users, reduce complexity for developers, and enable us to build the next generation of tools for growing your business with Facebook. Subscribe to the developer blog to learn about our new roadmap in the coming weeks.

    Well,.. if you have some sort of "welcome tab" on your fanpage (like the big guys [redbull, britney spears, etc.] you will have to change it / edit it because it will only be 520 pixel (width) from 23th August on...

    Furthermore, they will be removing the box tab in all our pages as well as our profiles...
    Just have a look at your page and you´ll see some of the upcoming changes..

    Honestly, I can´t wait that google reveals its new social network.. facebook is a pain.. ;-)

    Yeah... the FBML tabs will not be removed, but resized to 520 pixel, so its a lot shorter...!

    But they just wrote that they would remove the boxes... so the FBML and aplication tabs will still be live, but are going to be resized!
