“Facebook pages manager is one of our most frequent requests. Previously, if a business’s wanted to respond to customers on Facebook and Instagram, they had to open separate apps an increasing challenge as more and more of their communication is happening on social media. There were some people even carrying multiple phones so that they can quickly respond to all the different things coming in,” says, Benji Shomair, Facebook’s global head of Pages.

Facebook is testing this feature with selected users and is planning to roll out more broadly in the next few weeks. It seems this Facebook pages manager will be more relevant to small and medium businesses. However, large companies rely on their own applications for managing their social media presence.
