Facebook Business Manager is a GREAT tool for marketing agencies who need to manage multiple Facebook Pages, Pixels, Ad Accounts and all the other things that come along with Facebook Page management.
It can be a little overwhelming for a small business owner who is not well versed in Business Manager and the changes can be confusing. We recently had a client ask us why they couldn’t post to their Facebook Business Page from the standard Facebook App for iOS/Android after we helped them set up Business Manager.
I thought that there was a way to do this, but Facebook’s documentation was, as it often is, slightly incomplete and/or incorrect. All the help I found said, basically: “In order to do this, you need to detach your Facebook Page from your Facebook Business Manager.” THIS IS FALSE.
After some poking around, I found the solution to this problem, and I wanted to share with you how to do this. Hopefully this will be helpful to someone else in the future. Check out the illustrated step by step instructions below
