Cheyenne, Wyo., March 30, 2012 – Sierra Trading Post, known worldwide for great deals on great brands, recently unveiled its new Facebook Timeline. Merging the company’s profile and Facebook wall into one seamless page, Timeline provides fans and page visitors with a more visually appealing presentation and enhanced user experience.

With new features, including a large cover image and separate sections for wall posts, apps and status updates, the all-new Sierra Trading Post Timeline allows users and visitors to view highlights and key moments in the company’s history, all on one page. A reverse chronological Timeline key on the right-hand side of the page also makes it easy for visitors to quickly navigate to important milestones dating back to the year Sierra Trading Post was founded, 1986.

“Timeline creates a more engaging experience, and allows us to share our company’s rich history with our Facebook fans in a more meaningful and visual way,” says Juliette Rule, PR and Community manager at Sierra Trading Post. “We’re very pleased with Facebook Timeline, and we hope our fans will enjoy the new layout of our page.”

In addition to launching Timeline, Sierra Trading Post has also added a new feature to its website that allows fans to download customized, preformatted cover art for their personal Facebook Timelines, as well as for their Twitter page backgrounds. The art has been created from winning Share Your Adventure Photo Contest entries and includes the fan’s photo credit. The images can be downloaded on Sierra Trading Post’s About Us page.
