Facebook Release Pages Manager Mobile Application
Facebook released a new Page Manager Application this week which allows page administrators to easily manage their pages on the move. So how does it work out practically? Essentially the app allows us to effectively update our pages via mobile. In the past updating a page status via mobile has been a chore and a pain to many. The primary culprit here was the fact that when you updated the brand page via your mobile, the update came from your personal profile and not your brand page. That wasn’t ideal. Well the good news is that this application solves that issue. Now you can comfortably update all brand pages, upload photos and manage your page on the move. Its not without its limits however, the insights are next to useless and seem to really only be included for the sake of it. Overall the application is useful as a status posting tool, although it is missing many features that might be useful for a status posting application. It definitely has its place, but its not a game changer by any means.

The training I did on WordPress has given me the tools to develop my own website and the skills to update and develop it. As a start up business, this saves on cost and gives me greater control of the tools to market the business.
