Facebook Pages Manager for Android now available

If you are managing one or multiple pages on Facebook besides your personal account you may have noticed that there was not an app available until now to manage Facebook Pages from your smartphone or tablet. While you could log in on Facebook using a web browser to manage a Page this way, you'd probably prefer an optimized application for that.

Facebook today launched the Pages Manager for Android which can now be downloaded from the official Google Play store. Page admins can download the app to manage all pages from it. This includes options to post updates and respond to comments, view and reply to private messages, and notifications on page activities.

First thing you need to do after installation and first start is to enter your Facebook username and password. Once that is out of the way you are taken to the first Page you are admin of. Here you see relevant information about the page in question including the number of likes, how many people talk about it, links to insights and the activity log, and the most recent posts made on the Page.

You find options to update the status of the page - aka post a new message on it - and a photo uploader here which you can use to add new contents to the Facebook Page. The number of new messages and notifications is highlighted at the top. A tap on an icon there displays the private messages or notifications right on the screen. From there it is possible to reply or respond to those messages and notifications directly.

A tap on insights displays page statistics which some admins may find useful to look at. The menu button at the top left displays all other pages that you are admin of so that you can switch between those pages using the app. New notifications are displayed right here so that you always know where to go next.

Facebook Pages Manager is a useful application for admins of at least one Page on Facebook. It provides you with better manageability options for the page on your mobile device and maybe even on tablet computers.

    The app can’t be installed in my country. Obviously the UK is some kind of weird territorial backwater which abuses Pages.

    Mind, the only thing I’d want it for – being able to share posts that appear on my personal feed onto my Pages – doesn’t seem to be there.

    Spotted another article elsewhere – sorry, I can’t remember exactly where – and it seems they’ve only rolled it out to Australia and NZ so far. On the other hand, the reviews haven’t been great as yet.

    Google Play is telling me can’t be installed on my device and I have android 4.0 on a LG motion. I would think it should be compatible, but I guest not. Anthony Hutzler
