Does your business have a Facebook page?

But managing your page is necessary if you don’t want offensive and disagreeable posts seen by every fan on your page. Believe me you don’t want any and everything posted on your business page. And I’m here to tell you, Yes, you can manage what visitors post to your page.
Read on and I’ll show you how.
Here is one thing you need to know about your Facebook page?
When someone tags or mentions your business page on their profile timeline or business page it will show up as a post on your business Facebook page in the section called “visitors post”.
Personally, I would like the opportunity to respond to the person first and thank them sharing or inquire more if the mention they posted was negative. For this scenario, I have my settings set to “ Post Moderation.”
#1 Access Your Facebook Page
Facebook is constantly trying to find ways to get us to share content to our pages, so there are multiple way to get access to your business page on desktop. You can go to your Explore tab on your profile home feed or you can go to the Quick Help (bookmarks) to see the list of pages you manage.
#2 Once you have chosen your page, then go to your settings which will be at the top of your page to the right.
#3 In the settings, click the “Visitors Post” tab under the general settings. Don’t get lost by all of the other settings that you have available.
#4 Under the edit button you have 4 options to choose from.
- Allow visitors to the page to publish
- Allow photos and videos posts
- Review posts by other people before they are published to the page.
- Disable posts by other people on the page.
#5 After you’ve made your choice hit the “Save Changes” button that will save your choice. If you decide later that you want visitors to have that option to post you can always edit the choices.
