Facebook rolled out their new Timeline for fan pages about a week or so ago, and you’ve got less than a month to transition your fan pages over before Timeline goes live for all fan pages on March 30, 2012.
If you’ve ever tried to use the native Facebook share functionality to share a specific tab on a Facebook fan page, you’ve realized that Facebook handles page tabs differently than external content, overriding the IFRAME tab’s Open Graph meta data with content from the fan page itself.
