If you don't know yet, Facebook has changed the dimensions of the custom FBML pages from 720px wide to (I think) 520px.

It's a pain in the butt,especially if you have a lot of graphics, but if you haven't updated your dimensions, your pages are likely all cut off and looks weird now.

Thanks for the info. I don't currently have a custom page with Facebook, but still good to know and I know others here do have the page.

FBML is just Facebook's version of HTML. If you didn't build a page with your own HTML you don't have to worry about it..everything native to Facebook, and internal apps and such will be automatically updated and resized.

It's only an issue if you have a custom page with your own code and graphics.

..and I might add that it sucks. You basically have to just rebuild the whole page, or copy your code into an editor because trying to make dimension changes everywhere they need to be in that little code window that they give you to work in is excruciating.

I couldn't figure out what they wanted us to do, so decided to wait until the change takes place and then repair or delete entirely. Time will tell.

Here's a decent article about the changes as it pertains to marketers:
