Third party updating
One thing that Edge Rank has the potential of doing is lowering the value of an update from a third-party tool and prioritizing updates that are made directly on Facebook.This means that pages with updates from third-party apps may not get as much engagement.
You can learn more about it in this post from Econsultancy.I honestly think this is something we need to take very seriously, as most malware and attacks today (targeted, botnets, etc) are focused on the clients, exploiting OS and third-party software vulnerabilities (plus social engineering).The two sides of the coin are: I've been testing Secunia PSI in a few computers recently and I got a good first impression.This post will show you six tools that social media experts and marketing agencies use to update their Facebook pages.Before we get into third-party tools and applications, I want to suggest that you use Facebook itself to update your Facebook page for the following reasons.You can configure the management server either to receive content updates automatically or manually.
See Downloading content from Live Update to the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
Other options are Update Star (Windows), SUMo - Software Update Monitor (Windows), Version Tracker [Pro] (Mac and Windows), Radar Sync (Windows), UDC - Update Checker (Windows), Belarc Advisor (Windows), and App Update Widget (Mac).
For Linux you are pretty much tied to the software package manager of the distribution you like to use.
See Configuring a Live Update Settings policy to allow third-party content distribution to managed clients.
If you want to use third-party distribution tools to update unmanaged clients, you must first create a registry key on each unmanaged client.
But small companies that don’t have access to enterprise-class management systems are left without a simple means of updating third-party applications that are installed on Windows systems.
