What Is Fan Page Robot: A Review
Fan Page Robot is designed to make it easy to find high-quality images to share on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. The cloud-based software also helps you find the hashtags that will get your page additional views from people performing searches on these platforms. The service costs only $9 a month as a regularly occurring subscription (same price as a Pro tier Hootsuite account).
I have been using Fan Page Robot for the past several months and it has saved me a ton of time managing my own Facebook Pages by allowing me to quickly schedule content months in advance. Using other tools like Hootsuite, it used to take me hours to manually search through the web looking for funny images but now I spend one hour every 3 months scheduling content for the rest of the season.
On top of this, Fan Page Robot will actually give you trending topic suggestions based on what is trending on Google News, Facebook and Twitter! Brilliant!
How Easy Is It to Use?
Fan Page Robot is extremely easy to use and fairly self-explanatory; after connecting your Facebook and Twitter accounts to it, you can perform keyword searches in different niches. Fan Page Robot will scour the web looking for images that fit these keywords that are already trending on Facebook, tumblr or Twitter and recommend hashtags to include in your message. Best of all, by simply clicking your mouse cursor on a hashtag the software will recommend other popular hashtags that are related, which you can include to get even more social reach.
While it is primarily focused on scheduling content to a Facebook Page, Fan Page Robot also allows you to cross-post to Twitter at the same time you publish to your Facebook Page. This makes things really easy!
There is also a setting which allows you to have Fan Page Robot go into autopilot mode — it will automatically select and schedule images to post to your accounts….but after experimenting with that feature I would not recommend using it. It seems that Fan Page Robot has no way to censor out pornographic images and I have found it has attempted to schedule nude photos to my Pages if I do not monitor the schedule feed.
The only other problem with images I have experienced is in regards to animated gifs; because Fan Page Robot uploads the scheduled images to your Page, Facebook will be unable to play the animated gif. Currently Facebook only plays animated gifs when you manually share the link as a status update. This is less a problem with Fan Page Robot and more a problem with Facebook, and can be easily overcome by manually scheduling the links to animated gifs which are hosted on other websites such as your tumblr account.
Fan Page Robot Knows When You Should Update
One of the best features about the tool is that it can analyze your Facebook Page data to determine the best time of day to update to get those updates with the maximum amount of exposure from your social following. It also lets you determine how many times to update per day, and even has recommendations. This is incredibly useful as it saves you time from having to analyze your accounts analytic data to decide your schedule.
I know that I sound really excited about this tool, and that is because it works. Before Fan Page Robot I used a combination of tools; one for scheduling posts, one for identifying hashtags and hours and hours of searching on Google Images for good memes. Now I just use Fan Page Robot one hour every three months and it keeps my audiences engaged and re-sharing my Page to grow it further.
If you are serious about wanting to build a Facebook Fan Page and keep it populated with highly engaging content, I highly recommend that you sign up for Fan Page Robot. It costs only $9 / month and is well worth it.
