Facebook Stops Automatic Updates To Pages But Shows Friends Activities Instead

In addition to what feels like a whirlwind of changes, Facebook rolls out yet another set of updates. This time, the changes are happening on public pages.

As seen in the picture above, Facebook stops automatic updates. The message reads:
Changes to How You Share Content on Your Page 
We want you to connect with your fans in the most effective ways possible. That's why as of September 30th you'll no longer be able to automatically import posts from your website to your page notes. The best way to get people to interact with your content is to give them insight into the links you share on your Wall by adding personal comments and responding to feedback from fans. 
We're focused on creating even better tools for pages - look for announcements soon.
While Facebook may take away your right to import blog posts via RSS, the company offers a new feature. The new feature is called, "Friend Activity (1+)." Hmmm, very Google +1 like.

According to the information bubble, on this new tab "people can see how their friends are interacting with your Page on Facebook."

When clicked, it shows what my friends are doing on this page and filters out everything else. That's cool.

With all of these changes, the next few days should be pretty exciting. What will Google do next? What else might we see at the upcoming F8 Conference?

Let's talk about it in the comment section below.
