• 2 Super Cool Facebook Timeline Features You Might Have Missed

    With the new Facebook timeline on your business page, there are two handy ways to make your posts stand out so that Facebook Timeline Features - Pin to Top - Highlightpage visitors take notice.

    Pin to Top – When you hover over the upper right corner of a post on your Facebook page and click the edit icon, there is a “Pin to Top” option. When you select this, it moves that post to the top of your page and keeps it there until you unpin it. Any subsequent posts that you add to your page will appear below your pinned post.

    This can be really handy if you want to promote something that is time-sensitive such as a current promotion that you’re holding or an upcoming event.

    Highlight – When you hover over the upper right corner of a post on your Facebook page, you’ll see a star icon called “Highlight.” Selecting this option will expand your post from a small box to a feature that spans across both columns. This is a nice way to draw attention to a specific post on your page. You can also highlight multiple posts and they will remain that way until you click the icon again to remove highlight. The highlight feature is also available for use on your personal Facebook profile.

      Thank you for this information. I was unsure of how the “pin to top” function worked. I have already implemented it on my page. Thanks again and have a great day!

    2. This is a helpful tool for advertising for fundraisers! Thanks

    3. By Pinning I ensure that page visitors are viewing the most important posts on my page. when I am highlighting something it extends over both columns to feature that post. Highlighting a post does not bring it the very top of my page; it only makes it more visible to my fans. Posts that I would wish to highlight are time sensitive news story, a video clip of my latest commercial.
