One of the things that the new Facebook pages design makes obvious above all others is the lack of updates on a Facebook page. While updating your Facebook page on Facebook itself is recommended, many businesses will still prefer to use a social media management tool for the sake of productivity and ease of use. This post will show you six tools that social media experts and marketing agencies use to update their Facebook pages.
Why You Should Use Facebook
Before we get into third-party tools and applications, I want to suggest that you use Facebook itself to update your Facebook page for the following reasons.
Facebook uses an algorithm called EdgeRank to determine which updates are shown in your fans’ news feeds. You can learn more about it in this post from Econsultancy. One thing that EdgeRank has the potential of doing is lowering the value of an update from a third-party tool and prioritizing updates that are made directly on Facebook. This means that pages with updates from third-party apps may not get as much engagement.
