New Zealand, where timeline profiles debuted, is the scene of another Facebook product introduction, as the social network released an iPhone application called Pages Manager, which allows page administrators to manage their pages via the Apple mobile devices.
9to5Mac reported that the app functions just like the regular Facebook app for users, adding features including access to insights, which offers data such as users sharing the page and total number of brand exposures.
As sister blog Inside Facebook pointed out, page administrators can currently access and post their pages via Facebook’s mobile site and Apple iOS and Android apps, but they had no access to analytics or notifications without the use of third-party services.
9to5Mac reported that Pages Manager would be available in the U.S. soon, but Facebook did not respond to Inside Facebook’s request for information on if and when the app would be released in other countries, and if an Android version was being developed.
