Facebook Pages Manager
Facebook released the Pages Manager application for the iPhone to make it easier for page admins to effectively manage their Facebook pages. The Facebook Page app for mobile has always had the ability to manage Facebook pages, but not with the same features, and often with numerous bugs when it came to properly posting content.
Pages Manager has a similar look and feel to the regular Facebook iPhone app, but it is more focused on updating and managing pages. The app allows users to choose from the list of pages they manage and begin posting from it. From the main menu, users can view their lists of pages, view overviews of their pages’ insights, look at the list of page admins, visit the help center, and check out the privacy and legal notices.
Features: • Post new updates and photos and respond to comments as your Pages • View and reply to private messages • Get notifications about new activity on your Pages right away • View your latest Pages Insights, including checkins[divider_1px_bg]

The app will also show you the latest jobs posted in your chosen field, since your last search.
