Facebook Timeline for brands has only recently been announced but already some brands and organisations have embraced it and updated their Facebook brand pages accordingly. The launch has been widely covered and many have already commented on what it means and why there is the usual outcry when change takes place. I am not here to say whether it is good or not just now, more just who has embraced it so far.
Following on from Simon Heyes’ top 10 creative Google+ Pages and without much further ado here are 10 pages that are leading the way and one that is already breaking the rules.
It is not a social media post like this without Burberry getting a mention and to keep up tradition their social media guys have been quick off the mark. It’s an old fashioned number for them.
2. Red Bull
Another brand that like to be one of the first, Red Bull have gone with a very striking image.
Some great artwork on the Sharpie Page showing off what you could do with their pens if you had the talent.
Creative use by Fanta to incorporate their avatar as part of their cover photo.
5. Sub Club
Unless you are from Glasgow or central Scotland in general the chances are you might not be too familiar with the Sub Club. However a great example of how a venue can use it to maximise the visual impact of their brand page.
6=. Manchester City & Manchester Utd
The two Manchester football clubs are battling for the Premier League title and both have launched their branded timelines with great images of their teams. Man Utd show off their title win last year while City showcase their vast array of talent. I will let you decide which is best.
Starbucks went for an instagram feel to their cover photo.
All about the catwalk and the fashion for Topman’s efforts.
And to wrap up the top 10 it is the Eastenders page from the BBC. Get out ma puuuubbbb. Duff Duff Duff….
Finally the rule breaker I was talking about, that would be Subway. No calls to action allowed they said.
If all else fails, brands should get inspiration from this collection of profile timelines from the ‘average’ user. What other ones I have missed though? Coca Cola or the Facebook efforts deserve a mention?
