Page administrators of the world rejoice. Your cries have been heard.
One of the biggest frustrations for page administrators (myself included) has been facilitating engagement and content from on the road. Anyone working off of the iPhone IOS system and the the standard Facebook app knows what I am talking about.
Facebook Inc. recently released a new app directed at making the lives of page admin’s the world over, a lot easier.
