    Facebook pages let you add images into your Fan page and if you are like me, you might like to take pictures from Bloggers meet, unboxing pictures and will upload on your fan page to bring more interaction. New page will showcase pictures uploaded by admin at the top and thus more views to your uploaded pictures.

You might also like to have a look into How to enable photo tagging into Facebook fan pages. As an admin you can also hide any photo to appear into your Facebook Fan page or lets call it blog Facebook profile page.

    To make Fan pages similar to profile page, they have shifted navigation links on the left sidebar. Which is the default navigation for Facebook profile pages. In short now they are treating Facebook Fan pages as a profile page.

    Top posts view:

    Now you can control if be default you want to show top posts by users and page or just by page. If you allow your users to post on your wall, probably you would like to keep it show top posts by everyone. But if you are not using your Facebook fan page for interaction, you can simply show top posts  by page. You need to go to edit page and under manage permission, you can configure this setting.
