A New Look For PCH Fan Page — It’s About “Time”!

If you use Facebook, you’ve probably noticed by now that it has given itself a “Facelift” with the new Facebook Timeline format. It’s all in the hopes that it will help you tell the story of your life better, while you enjoy the stories of your favorite friends, companies and organizations.

We believe that the Facebook Timeline on the PCH Fan Page will help you enjoy the Publishers Clearing House story more. Our story is rich in history, rich in innovation and, well, making people rich!

Also, we think we have a wonderful story to share with you. A story of a small family owned business that started in a Long Island basement and became one of America’s most iconic companies.

Here are just a few of the pieces of Publishers Clearing House history we’ll be able to share with you with the help of Timeline:

  • Our history: When did we award our first prize? When did the Prize Patrol make its first appearance? And who was our very first millionaire winner?
  • Publishers Clearing House’s charitable work. Did you know that about 40% of all PCH profits go to help deserving charities? With the help of the new Facebook Timeline, you’ll be able to learn about  our Good As Gold winners, folks who get an exciting visit from the Prize Patrol because of the charitable work they are doing
  • Historic PCH photos
  • Notable newspaper clippings of sweepstakes winners and winning moments
  • Vintage PCH mailers
  • PCH employee Our House newsletters from the past that highlight company history and people

How’s The Facebook Timeline Format Different?

The first change is, of course, the Timeline. At the top right of the Fan Page you see the word “Now” and a Timeline that moves back in time to “Founded.” Click on any time period to learn more about PCH during that segment.

See the photo at the top of this blog for the new location of the tabs, also known as “apps.” With Timeline, only three tab panels are viewable at any given time. To see more “apps,” just expand the tab panel by clicking the drop-down box.

Want to access the fun tabs even faster?  When you’re visiting a tab, you can click on the arrow to reveal a “drop down menu” right next to the PCH logo at the top of the Fan Page. This will reveal the rest of the page’s tabs, so that you can visit the next game with just one click.

Want to see recent posts by fellow fans? Just look to the right now. Also, at the right, you’ll see the Fan Pages that Publishers Clearing House has “LIKED.” You can trust that the news and information on these “LIKED” Fan Pages is reliable and accurate.

Need To Get Private With PCH?

A handy new feature of the Facebook Timeline format is the ability to send messages to Publishers Clearing House. Have a question? Just click the “MESSAGE” button to send us a message. An official PCH representative will respond to your request for information.

So, enjoy spending “TIME” with the new PCH Fan Page. We hope you “LIKE” all the exciting changes. You can also see a quick overview of the new layout and how to use it by watching Danielle Lam’s video.

Sincerely,

Elliott M.

I am Mulyani Made with initial MM users Facebook Giveaway 1830 is beginning to learn the Internet (since 2010). It has been amended several times and currently Timeline is the best for me. For all that I have done seen clearly on my Profile page. Similarly, almost all of PCH.Com been experiencing a renewal. That is why, now more obvious to click “Like” or do a search. So, I love the look of now, hopefully this can give news to me later life. Thank you.

I am still not that Facebook savy as my boys tell me to just “leave it alone” as I do not know what I am doing there… too much going on for my 63 year old brain…

I like this blog when I have time to get here… but for all those computer addicted kids out there in FACEBOOK LAND this must be the up & coming thing to do & your banner is awesome & will impress a lot of people..

It is just a shame that the whole world is into computer marketing of the ” self” as it seems to me to be now..

Every celebrity, business, etc. has a Facebook or Twitter thing going on… & it seems that ALL that matters now is how many followers you have…something like the numbers in the stock market if you ask me…..

It does not make sense to me & never will, but it is a good way to keep up with all your friends out of state.

Just my thoughts,
Maureen

I have been faithfully entering these contests for years and years and have never won anything from PCH. Probably never even came close to winning anything. I wonder how they choose the winners. Another thing, I sure wished they would get rid of these Obama ads on here as I am not the least bit interested in him or his family.

    Hi Michael,

    PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!

    We apologize that you dislike the ads. We do not control which ads show to you individually.

    Hi Deborah,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It sounds like you have been the victim of a scam. The offer you’re describing did not come from Publishers Clearing House. Also, there is never a catch with entering or winning any PCH Sweepstakes. PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.
