Finally an application that lets you receive an email whenever someone posts on your Facebook Business Page!
This is a feature I have been wanting for a long time. I can’t tell you why it hasn’t been available through Facebook before. I assume if you had a huge Facebook page, like The Jersey Shore or Pajama Jeans, all the comments could be overwhelming.
For a small company or organization though it can seem overwhelming to check your Facebook page multiple times a day to see if and when people have posted on your wall, asked you a question or responded to one of your posts.
Thank You Hyper Alerts
It is very easy to set up:
- All you need is an email address and you create a password.
- After that you just add the URL of the Facebook pages you would like to monitor, you don’t even need to be that pages administrator.
- Set how often you would like to receive the email (ASAP, hourly, daily or monthly).
- Tah Dahhh!
Once your account is set up, you wait. Depending on what you specified for a frequency and how often people interact with your content, you will receive a digest of activity on your Facebook page.
How helpful is that? I think this is great for multitasking small businesses and for people who are just starting out with a Facebook page for their business. Good luck!
UPDATE FEBRUARY 11, 2011
As of today Facebook has changed how their ‘Like Pages’ work. You can now receive alerts when someone comments on your page. I wrote a piece about the changes over at my real job’s blog. Hyper Alerts put together a statement on why their service is still relevant.
