    Default Facebook iPad app oddity

    I've got a very odd issue with one on my site's business pages and the Facebook app for iPad. Seems even though they only have a business page, the app is display a News Feed. And every thing being posted via their iPad is posting to this News Feed and not their page. I've looked for settings to make sure it "points" to their Page. The only way to connect is via the email address they created the Page with, which only displays when you log in via a browser. But this News Feed display on their iPad. I haven't asked them about what happens on their iPhone. Has anyone encountered this?

    Is this the regular Facebook app or the Facebook Pages Manager app?

    There is a separate Facebook Page Manager for android. I haven't used it but it is supposed to do more. I don't know if they have it for ipad.

    Yes I have the Page Manager app - the problem is the Apple iOS apps seem to think the is a Facebook Personal account for this and there isn't. But everything that is being posted to Facebook from the iPad is winding up in the News Feed and not on the Page. I think I hear what you are saying, I have to figure how to get all the Facbook posts from the iPad to ignore Facebook and go through the Facebook Pages app...need to see if that can be configured to do that...
