Facebook has introduced 2 features that fan page admins will find extremely helpful.
1. Admin Roles, and
2. Scheduled Updates
Facebook Admin Roles
Now when you navigate to your list of fan page admins, you’ll be presented with the option to adjust each admin’s role.
There are 5 role types, each with its own permissions.
“Managers” retain full admin rights, while “Insights Analysts” can only access that fan page’s Insights.
These roles are helpful for those business owners who need additional assistance with their fan page but are hesitant to grant full privileges to others working on the page.
Facebook Scheduled Posts
Hat tip to Ken Mueller for alerting us to this new feature.
Fan page admins are now able to schedule Facebook status updates up to 6 months in advance.
When using Facebook as your Page, you’ll notice the tiny clock icon appear in the bottom left corner as soon as you begin typing a new status update. Once you’re update is scheduled, you’ll see a confirmation box pop-up.
If, at a later point in time, you need to edit the text or photo of any already-scheduled update, click on Manage, then Use Activity Log from the Admin Panel.
For those who struggle with keeping up with the real-time nature of social media or who would love to schedule Facebook updates but have held off due to Facebook’s long-time “dinging” of updates posted via 3rd party tools, the addition of this feature is a game-changer.
Facebook has also made some updates to Personal Profiles. For information on those, check out this article from Simply Zesty about 3 Newsfeed changes.
Of these two new fan page features, which one are you looking forward to most?
