Both Facebook and Google+ show me notifications in a little menu when someone mentions me or comments on my posts. This is useful.

Both Facebook and in Google+ lets me create pages, and so I've created one for my company and one for my product.

Problem:
When anyone likes or comments or shares these pages, the notification is sent to the page and not to my user account. This means I have to check each page just to see if there are any notifications -- very tedious.

How can I conveniently monitor notifications about these pages?
Is there no way to have the notifications delivered to my personal notification menu?

Unfortunately, it's a known problem. There's no setting to have it otherwise. –  dnbrv Jul 8 '12 at 1:01

I am sorry to say so but there is absolutely no way you can do that.

One Workaround would be using ifttt.com which you can set to send you a SMS/E-mail alert whenever there is a new status, new link or new photo on your page.

This is useful! Except that neither FB nor G+ are available as channels :-/ –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Jul 9 '12 at 7:30
    
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun Are you kidding? Facebook is available as a channel. –  user221287 Jul 9 '12 at 10:07
    
@myselpoddar: My bad! The FB icons were removed by my adblocker so I didn't see them listed. Sorry - great help! –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Jul 9 '12 at 11:55

Unfortunately IFTTT doesn't have a trigger for page notifications or personal messages sent to a page.

There is a setting within the admin options for a facebook page, to trigger an email alert. (Edit page > Manage notifications, and selected 'Send notifications to [my email address] when people post to, comment on, or message your Page.') But this doesn't seem to be working for me...
