Facebook's latest: A Pages Manager app for Android

Now available in the U.S. and U.K., the app lets Facebook Pages administrators manage their pages from their Android devices.


People in the U.S. who maintain Facebook Pages can now maintain them via their Android phones and tablets.

Debuting earlier this month in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the app hit the shores of the U.S. and the U.K. yesterday, according to The Next Web. A Facebook spokesperson told TNW last week that the Android app would be "rolling out more widely in the coming weeks."

As opposed to personal profiles, Facebook Pages are often used by businesses, organizations, and public figures that have something to sell or promote and who want to build up a following of fans or potential customers.

The Facebook Pages Manager Android app offers a variety of features.

You can post new updates and photos and answer user comments. You can reply to private messages sent to your page. You can also receive notices about new activity on your page and see data revealing how many people are checking out your page. You can even manage multiple pages from the app.

Facebook has long offered a similar app for iOS. So it's about time Android users had their own version.
