According to Facebook, the introduction of the new page is going to be useful especially for public celebrities, business-oriented people, and such. It would help them manage their presence professionally on Facebook who wants to build their audience and connect with them. When you switch all the content would be transferred to the new page without any extra efforts which are really great thing.

What are the new changes and features of this New page?

The first new change on the page is quite evident. It has a new layout and design. It is more clear and easier to use, providing better functionality. The second change is that you can now easily switch between your personal profile and public page. This would lead to seamless interaction and independent management of both your page and profile. Facebook has also introduced news feeds on the page, making it easier to interact with other brands, partners, and public figures. This would help in gathering news from like-minded and useful sources which keeping your personal profile clutter-free.

Facebook has also provided ways to allow task control of your page to Facebook or others to manage. You would also get better insights and relevant notifications than earlier, making your new page completely separate while remaining easily manageable still.

Now that we have talked of the new changes, let us see what features are brought by this new page from Facebook. But first, why your question would be, why did we not include features in changes directly. This is because features only the administrator has access to these features. The administrator of the previous old page would get direct Facebook access to features which we are going to talk about now.

There might also be a case where you need someone to perform certain tasks for you involving these features. But you would not like to trust them with the administrator, in which case Facebook has also provided you with the task access option, which can be used to provide specific task permissions to the users. This way you can let them work with the tasks without having to worry about anyone messing with the settings or important features of the page.

Facebook has also cleared you would be able to access most of your features from the previous old pages. Rolls is one of the features removed from the new Facebook page. However, You can not have a moderator, editor, and such rolls for the page. Use the Task access or the Facebook access method instead. Check out more details on Facebook here.
