Need a reminder not to neglect your business’ Facebook Page? Probably not.

But a nudge now and then couldn’t hurt, and Facebook providing that with a new Your Pages module at the top of many Page administrators’ feeds.

The new module, in the upper-right hand corner of admins’ timelines, shows a snapshot of how well a Page is doing, showing rolling weekly figures for new Page likes and average post reach. It also displays recent posts and the number of Facebook users each has reached (and the number of times they have been engaged with).

There are also links to Facebook Insights for the Page and individual posts, of course, the ability to boost each recent post with a purchase of advertising.

Facebook appears to have been testing the module for at least the last several weeks. When admins are first exposed to it, they are shown a blue pop-up dialogue box with this message: “Quickly see how your recent posts and ads are performing, and use the Shortcuts link to take action.”



At the moment, there’s no way to select the Page that displays in the module, so admins with multiple Pages will have to keep track of the rest of them the old-fashioned way.
