Do you have Facebook and Instagram profiles for your business? Then, Meta Business Suite should be one of the essential things in your tool kit. 

If you are wondering “What is Meta Business Suite,” and “how to use Meta Business Suite,” this guide is the perfect answer.

What is Meta Business Suite

What is Meta Business Suite?

Meta Business Suite is a mobile and desktop application that connects your FaceBook and Instagram business accounts. It is a centralized hub for Meta users to manage posts, advertisements, and communications across Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. And it provides tools to monitor content performance.

Instead of juggling multiple tools for creativity, analytics tracking, and publishing, you can streamline all these tasks using the Meta Business Suite.

Is Meta Business Suite different from Facebook (Meta) Business Manager?

That’s right, FaceBook Business Manager (Meta Business manager) and Meta Business Suite are two different tools.

In summary, if you expect a centralized tool for posting and engaging with your community on Facebook and Instagram, Meta Business Suite is the way to go. 

On the other hand, if you’re running ad campaigns and need greater control over your business settings with enhanced security measures, Meta Business Manager is your solution.

Meta Business Suite has numerous community management features such as post scheduling, publishing, responding to comments, and managing messages on Facebook and Instagram. 

Meta Business Manager provides more advanced functionalities including, ad creation, billing, tracking, and asset management. When you try to create an ad within the Business Suite, you’ll be directed to the Ad Manager.

Who can use Meta Business Manager?

Few types of people can get massive benefits from the business suite. 

Social Media Manager of a brand: If you are a social media manager or part of a marketing team at a business, Meta Business Manager is the essential tool you need. It allows multiple team members to access and manage your Facebook or Instagram business pages easily.

Business Owners: In addition to helping you organize and manage your business, Meta Business Manager helps keep your brand separate from your personal account. Your audience won’t see your personal Facebook information; instead, they will only associate your brand with the information you choose to share, such as your name, work email, Pages, and ad accounts.

Someone who manages multiple Instagram and Facebook pages: If you manage multiple Facebook or Instagram assets such as Facebook Pages, ad accounts, or apps for your business, using a central platform helps keep everything organized.
