Utilizing the New Facebook App “Pages Manager”

Along with all the Facebook changes we discussed earlier this week, Facebook has released a new App to simplify the role of a page admin.

How To Manage Your Facebook Page From Your Smart Phone

The Facebook Pages Manager App helps admins connect with their audience and keep up with activity on multiple pages, all in one place. You can post status updates, add photos, manage notifications and comments and view your insights.

Pros

  • You can switch Pages effortlessly, managing all of your accounts effectively in one location.
  • You are now able to post to your page AS YOUR PAGE allowing your updates to show in everyone’s news feed.

Cons

  • There is still not a way to comment on other pages from your phone as your page instead of admin name.
  • Now there are two Facebook Apps to keep up with as you have to exit out of the regular App and into the Pages App to access the features.

To get started, install Pages Manager from the App Store and then log in using Facebook to quickly access and manage all of your Pages from wherever you are!

  2. If you have an android phone, you can go to the android market and download the app “Streaming for Android” and it will give you the same capabilities as this app for the iphone. Hope this helps others!

    I was hoping this app would help me add photos to an already existing album on my Pages page. Does anyone know of a way to do this? When I go into the album, the + to add photos disappears :(

  8. I hadn’t even heard of this app until reading about it here, so I’m really glad you posted this! The reviews were kind of scary, but if it makes administering my pages from my iPhone easier I’m willing to give it a shot. Thanks!

  10. Thanks for this! I also checked and couldn’t find this app for my Droid, but as someone mentioned above, I’m able to do a lot of things with my smartphone already. It’s hard to keep up with all of these new changes! (Hi, I’m an old-fashioned fuddy duddy). HA!

  13. That is so cool, since I’ve finally decided to do a Facebook page for my blog. Easy management, and I can still use Hootsuite.

  14. Thank you for this information. I’m going to check it out. I’ve been doing the e-mail system via that address they gave the admin. for your page, and it’s fickle. Sometimes, my photos won’t go in the newsfeeds. I know because I don’t see them.

  19. I’m not sure I see what the benefit of this app is yet. I just downloaded the app for Droid and I’m playing around with it. I’m able to do ALL of those things mentioned above with my normal Facebook app on my phone. I have no problem managing my pages. I’ll be interested to see if this app makes it any easier.

    • I never able to write on my page wall AS my page before. In the regular APP if I tried I upload a picture it uploaded as “Samantha Kanatzar posted to Life As Wife’s wall” do it wouldn’t show in my Fans newsfeed.

      If you were able to figure out how to get past that in the regular app – I would love to know how you did it!

      • From my Facebook Page, I have it checked off in my setting to Always comment and post on your page as , even when using Facebook as

        You can do this when you are logged into the computer and it should work once you are on your phone. I hope that helps!

        • I have that setting checked and it works when I’m on my computer but never from my phone.

          I love the APP because it guarantees that I post as my page; therefore, allowing it to show in my fan’s newsfeed.

  20. Just to be sure that I’m downloading the right app, it’s Mobile Page Manager by Mobile Tacklebox, right?

    • No. It’s listed as Facebook Pages Manager in the iPhone App store. I am not sure if it’s available for Droid as I only have an iPhone but the lady below says she is using it via her Droid.

  21. Is this only available for iPhone? I’m a Droid girl…don’t see it in the Google Play Store!!

  22. I don’t check my page on my phone. I haven’t really tried to figure out how since you can’t post with the page name anyway. I will def look into that though!

  23. Thanks for keeping us informed about handy stuff like this. Doesn’t particularly apply to me, because I don’t have a smart phone! But, it’s nice to know that if I ever upgrade to one, you’ve got my back! :)
