Facebook has announced a new app called Facebook Business Suite that allows small business owners to manage their Pages and Profiles on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger.
Business Suite is a single dashboard for your linked Facebook and Instagram accounts that will allow you to post, message, advertise, and view insights all in one place. To get the most out of Business Suite, they recommend that you link your Facebook and Instagram business accounts first if they aren’t already.
Facebook says: “Research tells us that business owners want to better operate across Facebook’s apps, but are busy running their businesses. With Business Suite, you can manage all your activities in one place, giving you time back to focus on other aspects of your business.”
It’s designed to make the social media management process easier. If you want to schedule posts that will go out to both your Facebook and Instagram followers at the same time, now you can. It takes a bit of navigating, but once you have mastered it you will find it definitely makes life simpler.
You don’t need to do anything special to access the new Business Suite; if you’re eligible to access it, you’ll be redirected when you visit business.facebook.com
On mobile, if you’re using the Pages Manager App, you’ll see the option to opt-in; if you aren’t, the Facebook Business Suite App is available on Android and iOS app stores.
