By now, if you have a facebook you've seen people switching their profiles over to timeline. What this does, is basically let people input milestones in their lives (graduating college, moving to a new town, etc), you can also use the new facebook timeline to look back at posts that go back as far as you've had a facebook, and many other great features. Whether you like timeline or not, facebook is making everyone switch to timeline, but did you know that this includes businesses too? That's right...If you haven't been to the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC facebook page recently, go take a look as we've switched over to timeline! But before we got it up and running at full steam we wanted to make sure that everyone understood how timeline works. Some of the pictures below are actually thumbnails, so please click on them to blow them up so you can see the fullsize!
One of the most noticeable differences in facebook is the addition of the cover photo. This is a photo that's big, and the first thing that you will see when you come to our page.
Have you ever had a question you wanted to ask a business on their page, but didn't want to put it on the wall for every one to see? Now, you can send a message directly to a page like you do with a person! We'll get your message in our inbox and reply right back to you!
What would a timeline be without events? Just like personal facebook pages, our new page allows us to give you a guys a glimpse into Sweeney history! On the right hand side of the page, you'll see years...Click those years, and it'll take you to what happened to Sweeney then.
One of the other most noticeable differences in timeline is that there are no more little page tabs on the side. Instead, these tabs have been made more visible for you so that you can find what you're looking for even easier. To view all of our tabs, click the box that's right next to the tabs, and the rest will drop down.
Facebook would be pretty useless if you couldn't write on our wall, right? The ability to do so hasn't changed, it's just moved. You can now find it in the top left hand side of business timelines.
Because timeline archives posts, sometimes you'll notice that something you posted on our wall isn't there anymore, that's not because it's been removed..It just simply got moved over. This is a feature facebook added to keep timelines clear, and easy to use for everyone. Don't worry...we know that you've posted, and we always respond to our online friends!
Finally...imagine this: You wanted to find the post we made about our Sweeney Challenge that we posted earlier in the week. So you go home, go to our facebook only to find it's not there. Just like timeline archives your posts, it does the same to ours! All you have to do is click on view earlier. This will let you go back as far as you want!
If you have questions about timeline, feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be more than to help you figure it out! We look forward to all the creative things timeline is going to let us do for all of you!
