Facebook Pages: Mobile photo & status update from iPhone

As a personal user, the Facebook mobile applications have left me a little underwhelmed.

As a business user, the iPhone Facebook application is a great tool for anyone who has a Facebook Page – but doesn’t have any other properties (i.e. Twitter). Once you add Twitter, Hootsuite becomes a great tool but if Facebook is all you work with, then Facebook for iPhone gets the job done quick and easy.

The key is adding your pages to your favourites screen within the application.

Add Your Pages to Favourites

  1. Open the app
  2. Click the grid icon in the upper left corner
  3. Swipe to the left to get to your Favourites page
  4. Click the “+” plus icon in the upper right corner
  5. Click Pages in the bottom right
  6. Select the page you would like to add from the list
  7. Done!

Updating Your Facebook Page

  1. Open the app
  2. Click the grid icon in the upper left corner
  3. Swipe to the left to get to your Favourites page
  4. Click on the page you would like to update
  5. For a status update, go ahead and enter into the What’s on your mind? box
  6. For a photo upload, click the camera icon to the left of the What’s on your mind? box

Huge thanks to @jjloa for this great tip at #pseweb last May!
