Facebook Rolls Out New Features for Insights, Page Management

UntitledFacebook is rolling out some new features for its business pages. I’m not sure when they will be available to everyone, so be on the watch for them.

The name of the admin who posted to the page will be listed below the name of your page next to “Posted by.” On a Page comment, the name of the person who commented will be listed below the comment next to “Commented by.” These notifications are for internal use only.

Google+ struggled to stay relevant by introducing communities (I’m still not convinced!), while Twitter and LinkedIn both updated the look of their profile pages.
