About 10 or so days ago Facebook started emailing page admins a weekly page update. I was curious about what information would be included in this email but didn’t receive one until a week later.
The email I received was actually quite long. I realized that I am still an Admin on almost every Facebook page that I have worked on.
It occurred to me that I should email my clients and ask them whether or not they still want me to be an admin on their pages. That, of course, will go on my list of things to do when I’m really super bored, which is basically never ;-) No, seriously, I will contact them. Personally, I think if someone is done working on your fan page that you should remove them as an admin. I also look to be removed when I have finished the work because I don’t want any any errors that are caused by the client or by Facebook to be blamed on me. If I’m not an admin I have no access to make any edits so the error couldn’t possibly be my fault.
Anyway … the email wasn’t that exciting. If you are monitoring your fan page, which you should be doing or it’s not going to really work for you, you will already know the information contained in the email. The email looked like this:
Here is this week’s summary for the Facebook Page: (Anti) Social Development
+36 Fans this week (745 total Fans)
10 Wall Posts, Comments, and Likes this week (23 last week)
1,465 Visits to your page this week (1,200 Visits last week)

I liked seeing the numbers for new fans for the week and the number of visits but somehow I expected this email to be more exciting or prettier or something. I guess with Facebook we should be happy with what we get.
And if I was actively working on the pages that I am an Admin of, it would be useful to see all the stats information in one email.
The email also reminded me that I had started a fan page on another topic and then didn’t do anything with it – I should probably spend some time on that project.
Are you a Facebook page admin? Did you receive the page update email? Did you think it was useful?
