Are you getting bombarded with notifications for your Facebook Pages? Do you find it hard to focus on your Page when your personal notifications keep coming in?
There’s an app for that!
As your Pages grow, you’ll get tons of notifications with the likes and engagements happening on them. You’ll need to interact with and respond to your fans, and that can get messy when you’re logged into your personal account. Birthday notifications, friend requests, the links your mom keeps sharing on your timeline – they can all get in the way of interacting with your Page’s fans. You might find yourself sounding like all the others who complain that Facebook is a distraction – except in your unique case, Facebook is distracting you from…Facebook!
The Facebook Pages Manager app, available in the iOS and Android app store, gives you a separate space to manage your Pages. It allows you to stay informed of what’s happening on your Page while you’re on the go. Page activity builds up quickly once you build an audience, so it’s helpful to keep up with activity throughout the day.

Access Multiple Pages with the Facebook Page Manager App
The Facebook Pages Manager app is set up much like the Facebook app, except when you log in, you only have the ability to work with your Pages. You cannot access your personal timeline and notifications from the Facebook Page app. It’s more focused on managing, updating and tracking Pages.
When you log in, you can choose from your list of Pages – the app allows you to access up to 50 Pages. Click on the Page you’d like to work from and you’re taken to your timeline. You can then interact with fans, create a new post or share a photo.
You can access much of your Page’s back end in the app. View your Page Insights to see which posts are most popular. Check your ad results to see the progress of your promotions. You can also boost posts using the app.
Pages Manager App Features
In addition to posting, viewing your Insights and tracking your ad results, the Facebook Pages Manager app allows you to do the following:
- View and reply to messages
- Monitor engagement
- Invite friends to like your Page
- Create events
- Tag Pages in posts
- Tag people in comments
- Use hashtags
- Add admins to your Page
Overall, the app offers a way for you to effectively manage your Facebook Pages on the go. This is especially helpful if you run a storefront or sell products through your Page and you need to respond to customer questions frequently. You can answer questions and interact efficiently with the ease of the app.
Pages Manager also allows you to focus only on your Page by limiting the distractions of your personal Facebook account. Your Page notifications won’t get lost in the long list of your friends and Groups notifications.
If you’re looking for an easy way to monitor your Page while you’re out and about, the Pages Manager app is a great solution.

I only get one of my pages in the app and there doesn’t seem to be a way to add the others.
That seems odd, Barbara. All of your Facebook Pages on your account should show up automatically in the Facebook Manager App. Make sure you are logged into the app using the Facebook account that you use to manage all of your Pages 👍
Spend now two days trying to find the answer how to stop using the app. Have already uninstalled it but doesn’t seem to help.
The reason why I want to remove it is that it does not offer possibility to send private messages to the fans that doesn’t have other connection opened but likes, comment and follow. For example lottery winners that I have to send a private messages.
I believe that installing the Pages Manager is also the reason that I can’t send private messages through Messanger as a page anymore. It was possible before and so good way to message my customers. Now I can’t send any private messages. Only answer to those who have reached out to me first in the mailbox.
Now when I send a private message from my page to a commentor or someone wjo has liked my post. The Messanger shows my own personal profile as a sender.
Can you help me with this? How to get rid of Pages Manager that I don’t want to use and go back to using Messanger?
Sounds like a setting change on your Page rather than an issue with the actual App.
Luke; Thanks for your reply. Looked all the settings on the page. There’s no where to find a setting that I could turn off Page Manager. Do you know where to do that?
I assume you just need to uninstall it from your phone.
Is Pages Manager not set up for scheduling posts to Instagram as well as Facebook? I’ve been trying to get better about posting consistently to my small farm business page and found that it can be done on the desktop, but don’t see the capability on the app?
Is there a way on desktop to easily “nocrop” pictures slated for instagram?
Also I noticed Creator Studio, how does this differ from the regular facebook pages manager?
I believe you can schedule to an Instagram business page through the app, but not certain on that. We do not focus on IG. Creator Studio is an improved content/scheduling tool, but it’s still not as good as FPTraffic 😃
