How to turn on Facebook Timeline for Pages right now

Facebook launched Timeline for Pages today and will roll it out to all pages on March 30, 2012.

But why wait? Here’s how to activate timeline for pages now.

1. Go to https://www.facebook.com/about/pages/ and click on “Preview your pages” in the middle of the page.

2. Select the page you want to preview and click “turn on preview” (or preview all).

This will show you what your current page will look like in the new style.

3. Click on “Add a Cover” on the right side of your page to select the timeline photo that will go with your page.

You can upload a new photo or use one already associated with your page. If the photo you choose doesn’t work in that space (size appears to be 850 x 315 pixels), click cancel and try another one.

4. Once you have a photo that you like, click “Publish Now” at the top of the page. Your new page is now live. You’ll also see some new admin features at the top of the page.
