There will also be a dedicated news feed to Pages for the first time which will bring about new ways to engage by helping discovery and joining conversations, Facebook said in a statement.

"This will make it easy to follow trends, interact with peers and engage with fans. The dedicated News Feed will also suggest new connections such as other public figures, Pages, Groups and trending content that a Page or public figure cares about," it added.

A new text-based Q&A format is being introduced to support richer, interactive conversations, it said.

"Improved safety and integrity features will now enhance the ability to detect activities like hate speech, violent, sexual or spammy content and impersonation, that are not allowed on the platform," the statement noted.

Increased visibility of Verified Badges will make it easier to identify posts and comments from authentic Pages and profiles, it added.
