The Food Network social media team has a big announcement to share!
We’re always looking for ways to make our social media communities better for our fans. And for that reason, we’re very excited to announce that our Facebook brand page will be changing over to the Timeline format today.
We know that Timeline is new and can be a little intimidating at first, which is why we want to show you all the reasons we’re excited for it.
The biggest benefit of the new layout is how much easier it will be for our fans to find content and explore the rich history of Food Network. The dates you’ll find at the top right of the page are clickable so you can dig deeper into the milestones that built Food Network.
The seasonal content that used to live on the left-hand side of the profile as tabs is also easier to find. You’ll be able to find the games and special content areas right under our new cover image:
The new layout shows you which of your friends have also liked the page:
And now fans have their own focused area where they can chat with one another about shows, chefs and recipes:
We’re very excited about these changes — and the ways in which these features will help us connect our community and our content in new and innovative ways. We also want to encourage our fans not to be shy. Tell us in the comments below what you want to see from us on the new Facebook Timeline.
And, most importantly, we want to thank you. We might be a little biased, but we truly believe that Food Network has the best fans on the Internet. We’re thrilled to keep writing culinary history alongside you.
