Facebook Pages Manager: manage your pages from a new iPhone app

[Update: This appears to be a very soft launch. The app is available in the Canadian iTunes store, and apparently in the New Zealand and Australian iTunes stores as well, but is not accessible yet in the US. When contacted, a Facebook representative confirmed that the social network has not yet widely released Facebook Pages Manager, saying only that “this is an app that Facebook is testing that helps owners of small to medium Pages more easily manage their Facebook presence.”] During the build-up to Facebook’s impending $100 billion-plus initial public offering, mobile has been a frequent sore point. Yesterday, the social network quietly released Facebook Pages Manager, an iPhone app for Facebook marketers to manage their brand pages. The new app will be familiar to anyone who uses the current Facebook iPhone app for their personal social networking; it lets page managers post new updates, see statistics about likes, reach, and user engagement, and respond to comments from fans. Marketers with multiple pages will be happy to see that they can manage all their pages from within this one app. After downloading the app, users simply sign on with their existing Facebook identity, and instantly they’ll have access to all their Facebook pages. While it’s unlikely that this app will calm investor fears about Facebook monetization, it is a nice gesture to brand managers and page owners. Android users, however, are still out of luck, unless they wish to use Mobile Page Manager, a third-party app that has not been updated since August 2011.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?
– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
