The New “Write Something” Box

If you’ve logged into your Facebook Business Page this week you may notice something a little different. The “Write Something” box has changed. While you can still see the basic “Write Something” dialogue box by clicking “Write Something” there are now vibrant icons with a plethora of options perched below.       

Click “See All” at the bottom of the box to reveal the full range of “Write Something” box options as pictured below:

For a Real Estate Professional any of these new icon options can certainly be a valuable resource. Even if you aren’t comfortable expanding your Facebook Budget and taking out Facebook Ads just yet, those call to action buttons can be extremely effective, especially when shared to your Personal Account.

If you’ve never heard of some of these options, there is no need to panic. We break down the icons and what they mean below:
