Using Facebook Business Manager means that you can access your Facebook pages without having to open your personal Facebook account – which ultimately means you can separate your personal and work life, and avoid distractions.

You also do not need to log in and out of different accounts, as everything is in one place, which allows you to easily switch between different ad accounts and different pages. This saves time for the company and increases productivity.

2.Better control

With Facebook Business Manager you do not need to be Facebook friends with clients and colleagues to add them as page admins. You can securely control the access of staff and clients by granting different permission levels to different pages and accounts, which can easily be revoked if needed. This means no more shared passwords and login details which means your, and your clients’, information is more secure.

3. Prepare comprehensive reports

With Facebook Business Manager you can prepare accurate and detailed reports on a page and particular posts performance and especially that of Facebook ad performance.
