Facebook pages are being redesigned. The social network announced a significant change to the Facebook Page experience for creators and public figures, which includes a new look-and-feel, updated navigation, the introduction of a dedicated News Feed, a new Q&A format for engaging fans and other tools and insights.
Notably, the redesign will also do away with the Like button to instead focus on Followers- a more direct measurement of how many people a page is currently reaching.
In a blog post, the social media company said on Wednesday that Facebook Pages will only show followers and have a dedicated News Feed where users can join conversations, interact with peers and engage with fans. “We are removing Likes and focusing on Followers to simplify the way people connect with their favourite Pages,” Facebook said about the redesign.
