How to Manage Your Facebook Business Page with Your Mobile Phone

By John Haydon

Facebook Page admins have the ability to post Page stories from their mobile phones. If you’re like most people, you have limited time to manage Facebook and are often away from your computer. You can post content and reply to Page updates and comments on stories from any phone with mobile web access. Entering Facebook from any mobile device automatically redirects you to the mobile site.

How to post content and manage your Page with mobile apps

Facebook Pages Manager app (iOS and Android) allows admins to manage, promote posts, and even schedule Page updates. Find out more about these apps:

All these platforms are very easy to use, and most of them allow you to post text updates, photos, videos, and replies to fan comments.

How to post content and manage your Facebook Page via e-mail

Finally, you can update your Facebook Page via e-mail. You can do this by sending e-mail messages to a specific e-mail address associated with your Facebook Page. This address is private, so don’t share it with anyone except other admins. Obtain this address by following these steps:

  1. From the admin area of your Facebook Page, select Mobile in the left-hand sidebar.

  2. Copy the e-mail address in the Mobile tab.


  3. Save this e-mail address to your mobile phone as a contact (use the name of your Page).

You can post a status update simply by sending an e-mail to this address — just enter your update into the e-mail’s subject line and leave the rest of the message blank. If you want your status update to include a photo or video, attach the photo or video file to your e-mail message, and the text in your subject line appears as the caption for your photo or video.
