Social media for nonprofits or social networking for business is a rapidly growing field, and the technologies themselves are still in a growth phase. It should come as no surprise, then, that sites like Facebook are frequently updating.

Keeping up with these updates can be tricky, but it’s necessary because they can affect important things like page layout and site operation. This year Facebook announced new layouts for their Pages, with the goal of bringing them inline with new profiles and making the site more stable.

One of the things they changed was the tabs, which low are on the left-hand nav bar, as they are on personal profiles. Many organizations initially expressed unhappiness with this major change to the UI because it limits their ability to put tabbed options at the top of the page, which is typical in website design. This enables social networking for business easier.
