We recently released some changes to how Profile Pages work, and thought you should know about them. We’ll be alerting you to feature changes from now on.
First, a reason to promote your posts on Facebook or Twitter… From now on, when someone comes directly to a post you’ve shared, they’ll be dropped right into your Profile Page feed once they’ve scrolled to the bottom of your post. So they’ll see everything else you’ve got on there, without needing to find your page some other way.
Second, we’re making your page look better on desktop. Up until now, you could add a logo and a “banner” image across the top. Now you can add a desktop background image that remains stationary as people seeing your page on a laptop or desktop computer scroll down your page. Just hit the first Edit button...
... scroll down, and you’ll see an option to add a “Desktop Background Image.” One quick word: We’ve set things so that the image will be blurry, on the theory that we don’t want it to compete with your actual content. Please let Rob know (firstname.lastname@example.org) how that works for you.
Third, we've made it easier to see everything you've done. Until now, the only view of your page was with the full "cards" with photo, title, etc. But we've just added a new condensed view that lets you see a smaller version of each card, with the view count for each piece of comment you created. To get there, scroll down until you see the search bar. You'll see two icons over to the right -- the one with four bars gets you to the condensed view.
If you click on it, you'll see a set of smaller cards, with the view and comment counts over on the right, like so:
Fourth, you can now post an announcement from your profile page. So if, for instance, you want to let people know about a change to an event, go ahead and edit the event, but also make the announcement — this will put it into the feed and get it in front of people. Same with a reminder about an event you posted a while ago… It’s been living in the calendar, but announcing it (or doing a “market” post about it) will get it back in front of people again. Just go to "Create Content" on your Profile Page...
Fifth, the “drafts” tab is now working. So if you’re doing a blog post and don’t finish it, you can get back to it quickly. Here’s where you’ll find it:
And finally, if you happen to be running an ad with us… It will automatically be sent to the “Hidden” tab on your profile page. If you want the public to see it on your page, just hit “Manage” and then un-hide it.
