Re: The best move
Facebook's new changes not only tend to benefit business owners it helps them grow and expand their wide range of market. Business owners getting a chance to view how their competitors are faring really helps in making competition between competing firms interesting since a business owner will be able to plan on how to make his or her business grow the way he or she desires. It is a venture that aims at helping business owners in doing their work in an efficient manner.

Re: Apps/ page tabs treatment better than expected
It is amazing that facebook will be re launching its business page. It will make work simpler for the users as people will now easily navigate through the business page. The best thing about the business page is that the apps are not being buried by the layout as they were before. The new tabs will increase the content that will be found on the business page. Investors will find that their work especially in marketing of their products will be made easier by this great change.

Same shakedown, different mirrors
And yet despite this latest wave of shiny new smoke/mirrors effects that are all about the show rather than substance, Facebook still dings the great majority of smaller player biz pages with its algorithm(s) that hide the great majority of posts to the audience that wants to see them *unless* the biz page admin pays the vig.

Apps/page tabs treatment better than I expected
From the early reviews, I thought the utility of page apps (what they used to call tabs) would drop to near zero because they were being buried in the new layout. That was a sore point with me as the developer of a Facebook Tab Manager plugin for WordPress. Tabs don't get as much love as they used to, but they're still a handy way of embedding your own content or interactivity within the frame of a Facebook page.

The new presentation, where tabs can be positioned on the side or accessed from the top menu is not so bad after all.

Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
