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.

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.

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...


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.

  • @TorbenGundtofte-Bruun Are you kidding? Facebook is available as a channel.
