Facebook earlier this morning announced that all Facebook business Pages are undergoing a major redesign. In fact, the “Pages” name is going away altogether – they’re now going to be called “public profiles.”

To get a sense of what the changes mean for marketers, businesses, and individuals hoping to gain as many “fans” (followers) as possible, here are “before and after” shots from 7 major brands and public figures that were part of Facebook’s “public profile” launch today that should give you an idea of where Pages are going. Check out before and after shots for Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Michael Phelps, The New York Times, U2, Ashton Kutcher, and Sarah Palin below.

As you can see, the new Facebook “public profiles” for businesses look almost exactly like Facebook profiles and are focused on the stream, status updates, and wall. The new public profiles are built for brands (corporate and individual) that are ready to converse with their fans inside Facebook. For further details on the exact changes to Pages and what they mean for marketers, see our earlier coverage.
