Facebook Updates Pages Manager For IOS

Facebook released version 2.0 of its Pages Manager for iOS application, adding features such as photo filters and stickers, but removing insights such as clicks and people talking about this, as well as other features, albeit temporarily.

Sister blog Inside Facebook reported on the update, saying that the only metric available in version 2.0 is overall reach, and when users tap on that number, they are directed to a page that offers them the option of promoting their posts.

According to Inside Facebook, the only way page administrators can see insights including link clicks, engaged users, or shares is via desktop.

Features such as the ability to create offers will be brought back in a future release of Pages Manager, a Facebook spokesperson told Inside Facebook, as will the replacement of page notifications with prompts encouraging page admins to promote their posts.

As for the new features, Inside Facebook reported that photos can now be viewed in full-screen mode, edited, and filtered, with Pages Manager “borrowing” features from the flagship Facebook app and Camera.

Stickers can also be included in private messages.
