If you have not already noticed, Facebook has made yet MORE changes! Today, Penny Pinchin’ Mom has migrated over to the new Timeline Layout. In fact, on March 30, 2012, you will find that your favorite pages will be on this new layout. While we may not like the change, we have to embrace it and figure out how to navigate pages so that we don’t miss out on any deals. Below you can find a few key points on what has changed and how to keep up with all of the deals!
Ability to Add Select Page to Your News Feed
One complaint so many of us had previously was that our favorite pages were NOT ending up in our news feed. There was no rhyme nor reason why that happened. Just something we had to live with. Good News! You can now TELL Facebook which pages you want in your feed. It is really simple to do — just hover on the LIKED button for a moment and a drop down will come up. You can then check Show in News Feed. Now – your favorite pages will be in your feed instead of lost in cyberspace!
Items Previously in The Sidebar
The items that were in the sidebar are now below the header when you visit the pages. Here you can find photos, a link to our free newsletter, coupons, direct links to the website and even more (so make sure you check out these tabs)!
New Feature: Direct Message Penny Pinchin’ Mom
One new feature you will find is the ability to quickly send me a message! Previously, you had to have my email address or friend me on Facebook to send me one. Now it is simpler. Just click the message button and get in touch with me to share deals or questions.
New Feature: Highlights (Finding Posts Quickly)
There is a new feature which can help you quickly find all of the most recent posts shared on the site. You can use this section to find all of the posts made me or even by others on the site. To get there – just click Highlights on the page (as circled below):
You can then choose what you wish to see on the page:
- Highlights – just the page highlights (Facebook will determine what to show you).
- Friend Activity – see what your friends have been looking at on the page and/or what they comment or like.
- Posts by Page – this will show you all of the posts made by Penny Pinchin Mom – nothing else.
- Posts by Others – this will show you the comments made on the wall by other fans, just like you.
New Feature: Access to Highlights and Older Posts
As you scroll down through the posts, you will have access on what you want to check through a new header. You will not see this until you scroll down through the page.
You can quickly access the same items in Highlights here – but clicking on Posts by Page. You can change how you are viewing the page and which posts you will see (same as above).
If you click on Now from this header, you will find quick links to view either current posts or those from select periods of time forward. This might help you find an older post.

Hopefully this helps you figure out how to get around Facebook just a little more simply — and never miss out on any of the deals shared!
