Today, Facebook rolled out Timeline for business (fan) pages. This is a remarkable advancement in social branding pages. Facebook is now enabling companies to greatly enhance their Facebook profiles with key milestone "events" in their timeline, such as the date they were "Founded." Think about all the cool old companies out there that can really leverage this visual timeline, e.g. the New York Times, Starbucks and Coca-Cola are a few that definitely come to mind. Do you have a favorite page? I'd love to hear about it - share those links in the comments below!
Here's my blog post today over on Dell's corporate blog, Direct2Dell.com, about Dell's Facebook pages - http://dell.to/TimelineFBpages. Dell does have a LOT of Facebook pages, so I had to be quite selective in showing off just a few noteworthy pages that were really spruced up. The main Dell page is my favorite as it has nostalgic elements like an old handwritten invoice by Michael Dell when he was in college, the first Dell laptop, an old company photo celebrating the fifth year and a number of other fun "milestone" events on the timeline. Look for old photos you might have of Dell products and post those photos on the wall - do share!
What do you think of timeline for Facebook pages? An for that matter, what about your own personal profile? I have timeline enabled on mine (in fact I got it early thanks to a TechCrunch article with the hack!), so I am a big fan of timeline, obviously. I welcome your insights and take on timeline.
