Facebook is proving to be a revolution in the social media websites. It is ever evolving and that is one of the reasons, why it keeps its users intact. Sometime ago there was so much hype regarding the “new” Facebook pages. The new Facebook pages were supposed to have many new and recent features such as an altogether new appearance, new integration and so much more.
One of the most important features on the new Facebook pages was the introduction of external mini-websites through iframes. Iframes, when initially launched, were considered very torturous. Now they have made a comeback in a much more user-friendly manner. They have eased away the problems of users by embedding content on social media network and on many different web 2.0 outlets.
Facebook pages are very standardized. Unlike the old MySpace pages, the new Facebook pages have small built-in customization options, which enhance a user’s experience of using Facebook. This has been made possible by the fresh, latest vision of the social media designers. The question that pops up here iswhat is social media design? Well, it is the process of evaluating and branding your image on social media platform.
The first thing we consider here is the profile image. The prerequisite of being a good page is to use an image that has been made to look well aligned. There are various different ways of building a profile image and photographs, logos, symbols and graphics that can be added to it, but guess what? They all make it look boring, flat and unattractive. Play safe here by using a simple basic image and try to use a white or transparent background for that. You can utilize the space at the top, bottom and on side to mention about your product, company or organization.
All profiles and pages now contain the Facebook thumbnail banners. These banner thumbnails can be created by using recent pictures of a page uploads. Creating five custom thumbnails at 99 x 68 pixels is the best way to deal with this problem.The banners hold the page together by randomly arranged thumbnails even if they are not like Facebook profiles.
A PAGE banner makes use of separately held images for the thumbnails whereas the profiles are given the option to display larger images across many different thumbnails. The third and last principal element in designing for a Facebook page is the iframe mini website. You need to create your own Facebook application or install an application that will allow your page to be aligned with iframe functionality. The possibilities for new Facebook page designs are limitless with iframes. They can be used to design a completely new website, magazine or store and embed them into your very own Facebook.However, you have to ensure that the design for your Facebook page does not exceed 520px wide, which is the same size of iframes on a Facebook page.
