Designing a Facebook landing page: 12 of the best!

by Brady Nord

July 22, 2010 in design

I felt it necessary to congratulate and portray some of the successes of Facebook on this very big occasion.

As of today (July 21st) Facebook has succeeded in signing up 500 million accounts! This is obviously a huge number and it’s not only individuals. As many of you already know we are seeing more and more companies jumping on the bandwagon in an effort to extend their reach beyond the typical platforms.

The site wide uniformity of Facebook has been a flagship characteristic of the Facebook and it seems they have worked very hard to stay within their original business model. Despite this, they have created Facebook fan pages with many different apps that you can use as a way to customize your business presence. Up till now, we have mainly seen this space used for coupons and promotions.

This obviously isn’t a tutorial on how to design a company landing page, but rather I hope to inspire you as to what successfully companies are doing within this space.
