Daily tip: How to post from a Facebook Page with Facebook for iPhone

Trying to figure out how to post status updates and upload photos as the admin of a Facebook page? If you've recently created or become the admin of a Facebook Page it can be a frustrating task using Facebook for iPhone. Luckily, all you need to do is change a few settings on the web. To find out how, follow along after the break!

Before we jump into the details, let's quickly clarify how a Page is different from a Profile. A Facebook Profile is for the "everyday person" and what everyone in the world (except Georgia) uses. A Facebook Page is for organizations, businesses, celebrities, and bands and can by "liked". Check out TiPb's Facebook Page for a fabulous example!

  1. Login into Facebook on the web.
  2. Click Account in the upper right corner.
  3. Click Use Facebook as Page from the drop down menu.

  1. Select the Page you wish to post from with your iPhone.

  1. Click Edit Page in the upper right corner.

  1. Click Your Settings from the left column

  1. Check the first box that says "Always comment and post on your page as..."

  1. Click Save Changes.

Now you're all set to post from your Facebook Page with Facebook for iPhone! Now when visiting the Page's profile with Facebook for iPhone, all uploaded photos and status updates will be posted as from that Page and show up on the news feeds of all your fans.

Bonus tip: Gain quick access to your Facebook Page by adding it to the Facebook for iPhone menu screen with the + sign.
