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.

(opens in new tab)
  1. Select the Page you wish to post from with your iPhone.

(opens in new tab)
  1. Click Edit Page in the upper right corner.

(opens in new tab)
  1. Click Your Settings from the left column

(opens in new tab)
  1. Check the first box that says "Always comment and post on your page as..."

(opens in new tab)
  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.

  • Can I remove posts from my page from my iphone?
  • So, do you have to go back to your desktop account to switch back to your personal page being primary on your iPhone or do I get to flip between page on the app?
  • Thanks for the tip, although I think it's long winded. I post as myself mostly and occasionally need to post as my page. It's a shame the app does not easily allow this. Instead I use Hootsuite to do it, but it doesn't create thumbnails from links.
  • I can post as my page on MY page but if I try to post on another page as my page, it logs me out of Facebook. :(
