Facebook is used not just by individuals but a lot of businesses also use it to reach their customers. Apart from the regular profiles, Facebook allows you to create Groups and Pages. Groups are a great way to connect with like-minded people and you have the option to share pictures, videos and links. Pages on the other hand work like profiles and rather than ‘Adding Friends’, it allows people to ‘Like’ and stay updated with the feeds.
Unlike profiles, where only a maximum of 5,000 people can be added as ‘friends’, Facebook Pages does not have any limitations to the number of people who can subscribe. For this reason, a lot of celebrities and businesses create Pages. Facebook Pages also has a built-in analytical tool that gives detailed information about the reach, total number of people who have viewed the posts and the total number of people who are talking about a particular story. It also gives the statistics about posts that have gone viral and the increase or decrease of the popularity. Facebook Pages can also be managed on mobile phones and tablets using the Facebook Pages Manager.
The design and the interface
If you’ve been using the Facebook mobile app, then you’ll feel at home while using the Facebook Pages Manager. Once you login, the app gives you the list of Pages to which you have administrator or manager rights. You can access the Page by selecting one from the list and tapping it. The Page looks very similar to Facebook profiles and blue bar at the top gives you access to all the functions.
The globe icon on the tap has all the notifications and you can also access the private messages through the app. Facebook Pages Manager also allows you to filter the posts on the Page’s wall.
