Get Direct Message Notifications on the Go with Facebook Pages Manager App

Last month I wrote an article about the importance of responding to direct messages and posts on Facebook Pages and how to do it on the Web.

You can also get notified on your mobile device using Facebook’s official Pages Manager App (available for iPhone and iPad and Android devices).

With this app you can manage up to 50 Facebook Pages. You can view notifications like new Likes, Shares and Comments and also view Insights (analytics).  

Here’s just some of the Pages I have Facebook Admin rights to. The Pages Manager App lets me know that I have three notifications for the Nourishing Boomers Facebook Page and one for the Lawns, Gardens and Trees Page. Turns out the notifications were all new “Likes”.

You can view those notifications through the regular Facebook App, but the Pages Manager app allows you to see direct messages to your Page and to respond to them. This makes it an easy way to respond and engage with your audience. The screenshot below shows one private message is waiting to be read, and prompted me to download the app.

Here's a direct message notification on my phone. It's pretty hard to miss! I can tap through and quickly and easily respond to her.

While it’s not expected to be responding to Facebook direct messages 24/7, the Pages Manager App makes it easy for you to note when a direct message comes in and to respond to it.

The Race to Respond Infographic says that 83% of Facebook users expect a response within the same day and 56% who interact with a brand have a stronger connection to that brand. This App makes it easy to engage with your audience.

The app is free and available for iPhone and iPad and Android devices.
