Shortly after Facebook started showing its new design for pages, many marketers and page admins were curious about it — especially the location of tabs and apps.

In a blog post Monday, Facebook answered some of the questions it has been receiving about the new design.

Facebook cleared up the confusion about the left side of the page:

It will vary from business to business. If you’re a business with a brick-and-mortar location, the left-side column will show a map, phone number, hours of business, likes and visits, information about your business, apps (if relevant), photos, videos, reviews, posts to your Page and the Pages your Page likes.

For businesses that operate primarily online, the left-side column will show: likes, information about your business, apps (if relevant), photos, videos, posts to Page and the Pages your Page likes.

Admins will also soon be able to rearrange the order in which these sections appear in the left-side column.

The company also more clearly explained the Pages to Watch feature:

Admins receive a notification whenever their Page is added to another Page’s watch list. The notification indicates that their Page has been added to a list, but does not disclose the name of the Page that added them.

Readers: What questions do you still have about the new page design?
