If your Facebook page suffers from any of these symptoms, it’s time to operate:

- Your apps are tired: Don’t let your application section lose its pep. Feature your three most important apps first, so visitors can easily see them.

- You have an achy About section: You should complete the entire about section, listing your website URL first.
