Good news for Android users and Facebook Page administrators. Nearly eight months after its initial release for iOS, the social networking giant Facebook has finally released the Facebook Page Manager for Android on Thursday. The app is currently rolled out in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, according to a company spokesperson.
Until now, Facebook Page owners had to use the popular Mobile Page Manager, a third-party app, which hasn’t been updated since August 2011. However, with the new Page Manager app by Facebook, page owners can easily manage their pages, make new posts, respond to comments, and even reply to direct messages.
According to the app description, you can “manage all the Pages you admin, wherever you are. Helps Facebook Page admins connect with their audience and keep up with activity on multiple Pages”
- Post new updates and photos and respond to comments on your Pages
- View and reply to private messages sent to your Page
- Get notifications about new activity on your Pages right away
- View your latest Pages Insights”
Unfortunately we haven’t got a hands-on with the Android app yet and cannot say anything much about it. However, here are some of the screenshots that are available on the Play Store.
At the time of writing this post, the app was rated by 46 users, and the average rating was 4.0. By analyzing the reviews added by users, it looks like the app isn’t up to the mark and requires a lot of changes. One of the users also stated that there is no option to turn off push notifications, which is actually quite annoying.
Facebook has yet to make the official announcement, and we expect that to happen very soon. The app is available for download on Play Store, however, it is only available in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We expect that it will be available soon in the U.S. and other countries as well.
