There are many cool things businesses can do with Facebook pages these days.
Here are a few Facebook page features you may not be aware of.
1. Schedule your posts via Facebook

How to schedule Facebook content via Facebook:
-Click inside the post composition window and write your message.
-Choose when you want the post to appear. You will have to choose the date in the following sequence: year, month, day, hour and minute.
To view the posts you currently have scheduled for your page, check your “Activity Log” section of your page.
2. Tag people in your comment replies
While you can’t tag profiles in your Facebook page wall posts, if you have a post that has received many replies and you wish to reply specifically to one person, you can tag them in your reply.
3. Manage your Facebook page via mobile.
If you have an iPhone and are trying to manage your Facebook business page via the normal Facebook application, it can be difficult.
Luckily, there’s an app for that.
The Facebook Pages Manager app allows you to track page activity, view insights and respond to your audience as your page.

-Select “Edit settings.”
-Beside “Custom Tab Image” and select “change.”
-In the new window that opens, select “change” and upload an image that is proportionate to 111X74 pixels in size in JPG, GIF or PNG format.
