Facebook Extends Structured Status Updates to Pages

By David Cohen 

PagesStructuredStatusUpdates650In a bit of a puzzling move, Facebook has apparently extended its structured status updates to pages.

Structured status updates, which Facebook introduced in early 2013, allow users to add emoticons to their status updates, as well as to answer the ever-present “What are you doing?” question by adding elements such as what they are feeling, watching, reading, listening to, drinking, eating, playing, where they are traveling to, what they are looking for and if they are exercising.

While some Facebook users may be interested in knowing that their friends are partaking in the actions listed above, how will this translate to pages? David Cohen is drinking a pumpkin iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts right now, but AllFacebook.com is not, nor is the page exercising.

Readers: Do you see any useful ways that pages can use structured status updates?
