Today, Facebook has launched its new page format for content creators and public figures. The new layout furnishes more managerial options along with engagement insights. This time company has more focused on following on a page rather than liking it.
Comparison Between Old And New Page Layout
In the above screenshot, it is clearly visible that the “Like” button has been removed from the page. The company gives more value to the “Follow” which includes the follower count. The profile image is also shifted from the left to the middle.
The removal of the “Like” button makes more sense as it is not as useful as a follow button. The “Follow” button is considered to be a more powerful index. This makes sure that the user is notified of new updates.
