Facebook Page administrators realise that it takes time and effort to create a vibrant, useful page for fans to enjoy. While some administrators are paid for their efforts, many more are merely volunteering their time for a cause they believe in – their band, a local club or a cause. For these page admins especially, it’s incredibly useful to be able to automate as many of their tasks as possible.
Now, when it comes to automating social media tasks, the best place to turn is IFTTT. This is because you can take material from a huge number of sources and send it to somewhere else online, while sticking to some pre-determined rules and custom formatting. This can be invaluable when ensuring your Facebook page always contains relevant, regular information.
So, check out some of these great IFTTT automation ideas for Facebook Pages!
