Setting Facebook Page Notifications and Managing Pages

Facebook Page management help

How closely are you monitoring your Facebook Page?  Have you reviewed your settings for your Page so that you understand who can post to your Page?  Are you receiving notifications when someone does post to your Page?

Apparently one Lowcountry nonprofit organization is not paying very close attention to their Facebook Page.  It’s a bit after 3:00 PM and I’ve noticed that a  post which entices people to view sexy videos of scantily clad women was made to their Page in the morning – and it’s yet to be deleted. Certainly this is not the kind of service this nonprofit wants to promote. Fortunately, few people visit a Facebook Page after they have liked it, preferring instead to interact with Page posts within their personal newsfeed or Page feed. (On the screen capture below, we’ve obscured the name of the organization and people depicted in the section of the Page captured.)

Facebook notification settings

When you set up your Page, review your notification settings to be certain that you will receive notifications for each and every type of action made on your Page. Below is a screen capture showing you what to click on to get to the area of your Facebook Page’s management area to adjust and customize your notification settings.

If you have staff turnover, also remember to modify your Page’s admin roles to change who receives the notifications from the Page.

Managing Page Roles and Admins

Many organizations’ managers forget to do this and as a result, have people no longer responsible for a Page receiving notifications and still permitted to access a Page’s information and insights.

Before you go another day, why not check your Facebook Page settings to be certain that you and / or the appropriate people are receiving Page notifications and have the correct Page admin role to administer the Page.
