Facebook announced some new changes to Facebook Pages today that effectively make the Page design more like the recently re-designed profiles. 

For one, you can now navigate and interact with other areas of Facebook. "This means you can choose to receive notifications about fan activity, Like and comment on other Pages as your Page, and get your own News Feed where you can engage with the latest and most important news from other Pages you like," the company explains

FacebookWe are excited to announce major improvements to Pages, making it easier for Pages and fans to connect.

Easily embed social conversations

In addition, you can feature photos at the top of your page, and highlight other pages you’re connected with and those who are managing the page. 

Facebook also announced an "Everyone" filter on the wall, to provide a way for people to see the most interesting posts first. Plus, they’ve created a place for people to discover friends and interests they have in common with the Page. 

Facebook Page Redesign

Facebook has also updated the model for building apps on Pages, using iframes in Page tabs as opposed to FBML. Developers can now build apps that run across Facebook using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. You can also integrate social plug-ins and the Graph API within your tab. 

Facebook provides a how-to here.
