Wish there was an alternative
It is convenient to post Instagram & Facebook simultaneously, but difficlut to do the hashtags as it is two extra clicks for every hashtag since it is not in the keyboard like on Instagram.
Posts only go to 1% of people that have chosen to follow my page, and for even my friends to see things I have to share to my personal page. It’s all about the money to FB. What is the point of having people like something if one of the options is to boost a post and the audience be the people that already like my page.
Add in that if you speak of reality flaws, you stand the risk of being censored just like they have censored people and news articles they do not like. They seem to be more about censoring and deciding for us what we want to see as opposed to being a platform that can truly be useful. They have become publishers, as a business you have to pay them to be seen and as an individual, Facebook jail is an most likely a definite if you don’t tow their desired line. It’s interesting how they chose to censor things about the Wuhan lab, and low and behold they were wrong.
Let people read and decide for themselves instead of being similar to state run media..... because you also punish the businesses of the people that disagree with you. When I have over 1200 people like my small business page and it only is seen by 50 or so people over a 48 hour time window, something is wrong with the algorithm.... oh, but you don’t care.
Stop “fixing” things that don’t need to be fixed
I’ve had more problems with the Business Manager than I ever did with Pages. The layout is too “clean” in the sense that everything has the same white/grey color scheme. I can’t share Event Invites/ links to my page’s timeline from the app, which is a problem because I’m a musician. I’d like to “Schedule” my posts about reminders for shows with links to their appropriate Events, but I can’t. I have to go to my actual Facebook app and share them from there (and don’t even get me started on THAT update) and set alarms on my phone for when they need to be posted because I can’t schedule them. I’ve also had a bunch of problems with bugs/glitches, not receiving some notifications, receiving some notifications multiple times, and poor access the server to post on my timeline (it takes a long time, times out, or disconnects completely. I usually have to close out the app completely and relaunch it).
Overall, I feel like Business Manager has just taken important features for some of us away (the reality) versus giving us a user-friendly app to handle everything in one place (the intention). It’s great that I can post to Instagram simultaneously, but it’s still missing A LOT of the features and convenience that was a part of Pages. Stop “fixing” things that don’t need to be fixed. Stop changing the layout. Give us back the features we actually use and need.
A nightmare to use with screen reader technology
The “pages manager“ was simple and easy to navigate using screen reader technology, like a voiceover and J AWS on a computer. Ever since it switched over to business manager, the majority of components are not reading with screen reader technology. As a blind business owner, this significantly complicates me being able to independently use the app. It is beyond frustrating and extremely disappointing. Facebook has come so far with accessibility, and this portion, By adding the new business manager application, makes things nearly impossible!!! I used to be able to share and schedule directly while in the Facebook app, but now I’m required to use the business manager app which things are not labeled, so I have no idea what I’m trying to do while inside the app. And of the data is read off to me, navigating in a logical and sequential order is nonexistent! I am not the only blind business owner who has been having his issues. I am also part of a nonprofit organization, and affiliate of the American Council of the blind, and run the Facebook page for this organization. It is more convenient to just create a group for these organizations, rather than creating a business page, as we keep getting lead back to using “business manager“ which is not accessible in the slightest! ADA States that websites and applications need to be compliant with screen reader technology abilities, and, well… This is just not anywhere near acceptable!
