What Does Facebook Timeline Mean for Ecommerce Store Owners?

Facebook Timeline officially launched today, but won't be much use for ecommerce store owners - yet.  

If you haven't heard of Facebook Timeline, it's essentially a newly designed profile page that puts focus on events from the past and a new jumbo sized image that will compliment your current profile pic.

So, what does Facebook Timeline mean for ecommerce store owners? Well not much really. A Facebook spokesperson said, "we are currently focused on Timeline for individuals and will consider how to make consistent experiences for Pages." That means if your online store has a brand page, you're currently out of luck. So even though my personal Facebook page will be sporting the new fancy layout, our Shopify Facebook account will remain the same. We'll just have to wait to see what Mark Zuckerberg has in store for brand pages.
