Get Facebook Page Notifications

At Last!!!! I’ve always thought it was mind boggling that Facebook didn’t have some sort of email notification system for when someone posts or comments on your Page wall or Page photos. Would love to know the reason why they’ve not added it? I smell a rat! Business Facebook page notifications should be essential these days so companies can keep an eye on customer relations and respond to questions and feedback posted.

I’ve just found a Facebook app that does the job perfectly well. It’s called PageNotifier. Click that link and add the application to your Facebook account then configure it as below:

Facebook Page Notifier

You can get the Page ID value by visiting your own page and looking in the address bar or if you’ve got a tidy URL you can click the ‘Edit Page’ link then copy the ID number from the address bar that way.

You can add multiple page notifications and on first use, PageNotifier scans your pages every 15 minutes. After 24 hours it only scans once a day unless you subscribe to an affordable monthly payment plan but I think once a day is probably enough. It’s certainly better than the ‘never scan’ default Facebook option!

The app currently notifies you of Wall posts, Comments, and Photo, Album & Video Comments. Here’s what an email notification looks like:

    Thanks a lot for sharing this Leon. I’ll try it now man.
    I believe the only reason why FB haven’t come up with notifications for pages is to secure a better “avg. time on site”. Users have to be contantly logged in and online to see what happens on their pages, otherwise, the majority would probably come to the page when something happened…

      The sneaky bastards! What about personal profile notifications though?

  • Fred

    Ye, good point but still, I can’t think of another excuse for them not to have page notifications :s

  • Brandon

    Thanks for the link! I’m the developer of page notifier, and I just wanted to clarify one thing.

    When you initially set up your page, it scans ever 15 minutes “for the rest of the day”… that day ends at midnight Central standard time.

    The basic idea is just to give you the opportunity to test the app out so you know it works. (and of course it does)

    Another thing that’s been a really common question is that it won’t email you if there aren’t any comments… some people have expected some kind of “activity report”.

    Thanks again for the great review.

    Personally, I’d rather not receive these notifications. It gets annoying when someone just tags a picture with you (you know, that nonsense pictures with one trillion tags), and everybody starts posting messages.

    • Leon

      Depends how busy your page is I suppose…I hardly ever get notifications :(
