Facebook Business Suite Review: New Business Management Tool

Business Suite by Facebook has now been released, making it far easier to stay connected to your customers on Facebook and Instagram. They do this by allowing you to access all the tools you need to keep up with both platforms in one place. Meaning you no longer have to integrate third-party apps to perform tasks such as sharing ads. Business Suite includes tools like posting, messaging, insights and advertising capabilities, improving the experience of managing a business across Facebook’s apps.

So if you have an Instagram and Facebook business page, you might be doing things such as posting and checking your analytics separately on both Facebook and Instagram, but now you can do everything from one place, saving you time to focus on other aspects of your business.

How to Use Facebook Business Suite?

What is Facebook Business Suite?

Business Suite is a free platform by Facebook, available for users to manage their Facebook Business Page and Instagram account from one central application. The Business Suite joins several other Facebook Business apps, including Facebook Pages Manager, Facebook Analytics, and Facebook Ads Manager. However, Facebook Business Suite isn’t yet quite designed to serve those who use Ads Manager.

Facebook Business Suite is available for desktop and mobile apps for iPhone and Android, meaning you can manage your business presence wherever you are.
