How to set up Facebook messenger for a business page?

Guys, I'm probably missing the obvious. So I apologize in advance.

I set up my business page on Facebook. And now I want to add a feature so that users can contact me thru it. I set it up in settings, so the button is now available on my page to send me a message:



I asked my friend to log in and send me a test message. Which he did. The problem is that I never get an email from Facebook that his message arrived, and the only way for me to see it is to log in to my business page and literally go to the messenger in a web browser (which means that that message can sit there for days before I see it.)

OK, I thought let me install the Facebook messenger on my iPad, hoping that it will display a red badge icon when the message arrives. So I tried it right now, but all it seems to let me do is log in under my personal account (that I use to log in to my business account) but it doesn't show my business page messages. So how do I set it up on my iPad to access my messages?

This is kinda the obvious stuff. But I've spent half an hour going thru what seems like a stream of useless settings on FB and found nothing that addresses this issue.

Any help would be appreciated!

    I have the messenger app on my mobile phone. It emits a sound every time a message arrives. I don't know if you have a phone and as I recall you can also get notified by configuring the chat for sounds.

    Nice post to have a look toward to create Facebook Busines Page. I have noticed When a Facebook Busines Page have good Number of likes so changing the name of page became little hard to change.

    What should do to change the Facebook page name when having a good Number of likes & audience?
