Facebook Pages Manager for Android Update Brings the Ability to Promote Posts and MoreBy: Josh Wolford - February 8, 2013
Facebook has just released an update to their Pages Manager for Android app that brings new features to make the app a lot more useful to page owners.
Pages Manager for Android arrived in the U.S. early last month after being available on iOS for quite some time. When it launch, it wasn’t as feature-rich as the iOS version – it really only allowed page owners to post updates and view insights.
But today, v.1.1 brings some much-needed functionality to the app.
With this update, page owners can now promote posts inside the app, as well as schedule posts for a later time and date. Android users have also received the ability to create events from their Pages with the app.
Here’s the full list of additions shipping with v1.1:
What’s in this version:
• Promote your Page posts to get more people to see your them in news feed
• Schedule your post to be published on a future date
• Create events from your Page
You can snag the update today on Google Play. With v1.1, Facebook Pages Manager for Android gets closer to being as robust as Pages Manager for iOS. Still to come, hopefully, are features like being able to post offers from the app, something the iOS version of Pages Manager got back in October 2012.
