Let’s continue reading this article to know more about Facebook Business Suite…
What is Facebook Business Suite and how can you get it?
Facebook Business Suite is a desktop and mobile application.
Simply connect to a Facebook account linked to your company to gain access. After that, go to the following website to access Business Suite on your desktop: http://business.facebook.com
This is the same URL that used to lead to Facebook Business Manager, as we mentioned previously. Unless you specify otherwise, it now automatically sends you to Facebook Business Suite.
On a mobile device
The Business Suite Facebook app, which replaces the Facebook Page Manager app, allows you to access Facebook Business Suite on your mobile device. The Page Manager app has been removed from the App Store.
Who should take use of Facebook Business Suite?
Anyone who uses Facebook and/or Instagram as their major social media marketing and advertising platforms will find Facebook Business Suite to be quite beneficial.
Assume you’re primarily a content producer, and your Facebook and Instagram profiles have been monetized through brand partnerships and advertising. In such situation, Creator Studio is likely to be a more beneficial tool. The more extensive metrics of Business Suite, on the other hand, can assist you understand how your content performs.
As a result, a small company owner or social media manager who manages professional Facebook and Instagram pages is the ideal user for Facebook Business Suite.
Facebook Business Suite includes a number of features.

The Facebook Business Manager home page gives you a quick look at what’s going on with your Facebook and Instagram profiles.
You’ll see some basic statistics, a list of recent posts with engagement metrics, recent advertising, your schedule of planned posts, and a to-do list of chores to do (like unread messages).
From the main screen, you may make an ad, a post, or a Story, or promote an existing post.

On July 1, 2021, Facebook Analytics as a stand-alone application was decommissioned. While you can still use Facebook Page Insights and Instagram Insights separately, adopting a centralized solution like Facebook Business Suite is far more efficient.

Page reach, your top-performing sponsored and organic content, and audience information are all displayed on the main Insights tab.
For more thorough reports, choose Results, Content, or Audience in the left column. You may also download and export these reports.
On one screen, you can access and react to direct messages and comments from both Facebook and Instagram using the Facebook Business Suite Inbox. You may also delegate follow-up to a different team member.

Filters and follow-up flags in the Inbox help you stay organized.
The ability to put up automatic messages based on keywords and phrases or typical requests is a highly useful feature of the Inbox. This works like a rudimentary chatbot, allowing consumers to obtain instant assistance even if no one from your team is available to respond.
You can also use Inbox to create a Messenger chat plugin for your website. To configure your chat information and acquire the code to install in your website, go to More, then Chat Plugin in the top menu.
