Over time Facebook has been evolving their system of pages and profiles.

Some of these profiles/pages remain as old versions as their users/moderators forget to upgrade them as the changes are released.

I've inherited as small village of Facebook Profiles and Pages which I have been told to convert to the latest before March 30th when the new Timeline version of the Business pages come out.

So I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find an overview of the old types of Facebook pages / profiles (to recognize them by version name and image) so that I can convert the existing mishmash of pages into a standardized type before the deadline.

P.S. I have already seen this question but it appears to link to documentation which is no longer relevant, and only covers the graph API.
