Facebook Changes Again

On March 30th Facebook will perform a mandatory upgrade of all profiles (including business pages) to the new Timeline. Whether we like it or not, we’ll have to learn, yet again, how to set up and use the new interface.

The Facebook Timeline is a new, revamped layout that changes how others look at your profile. This new view will allow you to highlight photos, posts, and events. Because there is a plethora of well-written articles with great information on how to upgrade your profile, I have sifted through to give you the highlights and the links to other articles that will help you be ready for the upgrade.

To start, check out what the new Timeline will look like and offer. Facebook has done a good job of letting you know what the new setup will look like. Please take a look at the Timeline introduction. To start the upgrade, just click on the "get timeline" button on the bottom of the introduction page.

I have always said that you should have big, large photos on your website to help tell a story. Looks like Facebook was listening and as you can see with their new timeline, you can put in a great big picture, called a cover photo, on the top of the page. Way to go Facebook! Here are some pointers on picking that large cover photo as well as some rules Facebook has put in place. http://www.facebook.com/help/? faq=276329115767498.

Add a photo to my site


Add a Photo
Locate the module you’d like your photo to appear in. For example, if you want to add a photo next to the first paragraph of text on a page, first locate the module that text is in. Click on the pencil icon (A) at the top left corner of the module. Here is where it becomes more of an art form than a science. Place your cursor at the beginning of the first line in the paragraph. Click on the tiny photo of the sun and a mountain on the second row of formatting features (26). Upload your photo and press “OK.”

Makeover!

Our blog recently received a makeover! Awhile back, we introduced the option of having a custom blog to our Gold package customers. This custom blog would receive the same header and background design as their website. When a user clicks the link to the blog, it creates a seamless transition--as if the blog is another page on the site.

We went from our website to our blog one day and at first wondered if we'd ended up on a wrong page. It was then that we realized, "Hey, our blog looks terrible and we don't want others thinking they clicked to a wrong page. Let's lets give it a makeover." Our old blog was a basic Blogger template with a white and neon green color scheme. Ick! So we gave it the same header and background design, just like all of our Gold package customers.

Ta-da!

Builder Basics: Edit Text

Edit Text

Text and images are organized into different containers, or modules. Each module is identified with three small, white icons at the top left corner of the module (a pencil, a bulleted list and an x inside a white circle) To edit text, locate the module it is in and click the pencil button. Any changes that are made without clicking the "Save Module" button at the bottom will not be saved.

Builder Basics: Creating a Page

We offer our Total Care Hosting customers the chance to make changes and edit their website themselves. The next few blog posts will be part of a series of tips on how to do simple tasks in the builder.

Create a page

On the left side of the page, click on the blue compass button titled “Navigation.” Click the “New Page button” at the bottom of the page. This page will appear in the top navigation. If you want a page to be a drop down item from the main menu, drag it underneath the item you want it to be under and click the grey right arrow. The red X symbol will delete a page and can’t easily be undone so be wise when clicking this button.
