The New Facebook Profile: Learn How, What, and Why(?)

The new Facebook Profile: What, How, Why (?)

What?

The new facebook profile is up and running, and I have to say that I really like it.

How?

After you click to activate it, a new “About Me”-esque section will be added at the top of your profile, including information about where you work, where you went to school, where you live, etc. The option “Languages” has also been added, which is really cool for people who are multilingual. It can really help when you applying for jobs, and your future interviewer is doing a little Social Media intelligence  job on you.

Why?

I know a lot of people are squeamish about sharing their personal information on Facebook (school, job, where you live, etc), but frankly, if you conduct a minor search of your name on any search engine I trust you will find this information scattered all over the net anyway.

My “why” question is this: Why now? Also, I wonder what SEO weight it holds on search engine. And, since Facebook and Google are seem to be head to head these days, is this Facebook’s way to create its own version of SEO? That will be super interesting to follow.

What about Fan Pages? Are they next? I think so, and I think it will be an amazing way to really create a powerful landing page. Think about it, all of your marketing in one paragraph.

What do you think of the new profile? Do you like it?
