Facebook has announced a number of changes (view Facebook announcement) to the layout of Facebook business pages on mobile making them easier to interact with. For example, if you’re looking at the Page of a restaurant or nail salon, you can now easily book a reservation or appointment through Facebook from the page. The redesign is coming first to restaurants, local services then TV shows with custom design changes coming to other Pages soon. Other improvements are:

  • Stories and Job Application Tool now rolled out to all Pages
