How and Why to Like Other Facebook Pages as Your Page

With all the Facebook changes lately it’s easy to get confused. My head is spinning. Now, you can Like another Page as your Facebook Page and comment on their Page as your Page. And Like a comment on a Page as your Page. So much Liking to do and so little time!  But why is it good to Like another Page as your Page?  Haven’t I already Liked them once?  Now I have to re-Like and I don’t like that!

There are some benefits to Liking a Page as your Page:

  1. You can’t comment on another Page as your Page unless you Like it as your Page first.
  2. You get more visibility as your Page when you comment on another Page (but don’t be spammy!)
  3. You get a special News Feed of just the Pages that your Page has liked when you click Home when you are logged in as your Page.  The News feed will really help you keep track of all the Pages that you want to see and separate them out from your personal News Feed.

Watch the video tutorial (recently updated) to show you how to navigate everything, how to Like and comment and how to keep it all straight!  And make sure you like me at www.Facebook.com/GrandmaMaryShow – leave me a comment on my Page as your Page!

UPDATE:  If you cannot Like another Page as your Page, it is most likely because you have created a Business-only Page that is not linked to a personal Facebook Profile.  To find out for sure, go up to the upper right corner with the down arrow, and if you cannot switch to a Personal profile, that means your Page is a Business-only Page.  It’s one of the drawbacks of having this type of Page.  If you link you Page to a personal account, by going into the Admins area (Manage Page, Edit) then you will be able to Like other Pages as your Page.  Facebook is a little nutty.

If you have a Business-only Page, then all you need to do is add an Admin (your personal Facebook account would be good for this).  Here’s my handy-dandy post on how to do that!  How to Easily Add an Admin to Your Facebook Page    That will make it a “regular” page!  Hope that helps!

    But how do I, as a page admin, see what other pages “Like” my page?  I can see all the people that “like” my page, but not other pages.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Facebook hides it!  Darn it.  So if you go up to the top notifications bar, click on the little people icon to see who likes your Page and then click See All at the bottom of the list.  Then from the drop-down menu select Pages.  Then you can see a list of all the Pages that Like your Page.  Hope that helps!

  • Nothabo

    But where is the like button, I can go on to other pages but I can’t like another page because there isn’t a like button.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    If there isn’t a Like button there, then that means you have already Liked that Page as your Page. Check your Likes on the lower left side bar to make sure. Try going to a page you know you haven’t liked to see the Like button. Hope that helps!

  • Diwakar

    This is great post – but can you please help me, I could not able to “Like” other business Facebook fan page from my fan page, in fact in other fan pages the like button is disable, while trying to like them. Please have a look at these. Thanks!

  • Regina Sayles

    Ok, I’ve tried this but there still doesn’t appear to be a like button anywhere on the other business pages I visit. Only the “create page” button is there in the far upper right corner. There also isn’t a search box anywhere on the page to look up other fan pages. Please help, Thanks

  • http://www.allenmitchum.com Allen

    I’m having the same problem. A “like” button is not visible and I have not already “liked” the page.

    I do not have a personal page – only a fan page (in case that matters).

  • Stefaniekushner

    I am having the same problem. did you get yours resolved?

  • Guest5673

    UNFORTUNATELY i am using facebook as my page but i cannot like any other page, i can only like their statuses and posts >:(

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    That is probably because you have a Business account that is not linked to a personal profile! I found that when you have an account that you created just to create a Page and it is not linked to a personal profile, you can’t Like another Page as your Page. If you create a personal profile, or if you link it to a personal profile (by making a personal profile an Admin) then you will be able to Like another Page as your Page. Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the great article.  I have been struggling with this for the past month and pulling my hair out.  I have a business page but no personal profile.  I can go to another page and Like it but it doesn’t get counted in their likes and when I try to post a comment it disappears after I log out.  Very frustrating!  Facebook is rubbish at simple instructions.  Thankfully Grandma Mary is the business!

  • dorit

    Thank you for the  valuable information.

    It seems that now I can comment without my page being a fan :)

    Does sharing a status  that was liked by many (or shared by many) on another page – >> 
    on my page promote my  pag  in any way ?

    If so how ?

    The statistics seem to show so (virality is high) but it is not clear to me why ans what this benefits the sharing page.

    THANKS A LOT
    Dorit

  • Stevoscorpius

    If I already like the page but can’t comment on comments what does this mean?

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    I’m not sure Steve, I think that if you have been banned from a Page, you can’t see it at all. It could be a glitch? Is it every page or just a certain page?

  • Anna Burnell

    Thanks for all your invaluable tips! I’m not sure whether this is the same problem but when a person likes my Facebook page it shows up in my total likes. But when another page likes my page it shows up in my notifications that they have done so, but not in my total likes. So far I should have seven likes but only the three from individuals are displayed in my total! Is this normal? My page is connected to my personal account.

  • richard cronin

    For some reason i cant search for other pages as a page..The results come up blank. ANy ideas?

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    No that is correct, Anna! Page Likes don’t count toward your overall Likes. Only personal profile Likes count. It’s a bummer but it makes sense as far as gaming the system. Someone could create a thousand Pages and then Like your page with all of them to make it look like the Page has a lot of likes – but they all would be “empty Pages”. Make sense?

  • Jonathan Shepherd

    I have a facebook business page that is linked to my personal account but i still can’t like other pages when using facebook as my business page, the like button just does not appear but it does appear if i switch to using facebook as my personal account. Anyone have an idea why this would be?

  • Myk5e

     No you can’t. As Jonathan above has asked, no-one seems to be able to answer this and just avoid it. You can like another page but it will show up as your personal facebook, not your page….why can’t facebook step in and answer this?

  • Myk5e

     You will find that facebook won’t even help with this issue…i’ve tried.

  • Jonathan Shepherd

    Yep, it’s driving me mad, other people i know with business pages seem to be able to like other pages but i and many others it seems can’t. This makes it very difficult to get my business profile out there and rather defeats the object of having a business page. There must be some way of solving it, trying to get an answer from facebook is verging on the impossible.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonathan-Shepherd/1553375518 Jonathan Shepherd

    No it doesn’t, i have my personal profile linked to my business profile and if i want to like another buinsess page as my business page i can’t because the like button doesn’t appear and it’s not because i’ve already ready like the page as my personal profile, i’m talking about pages  i’ve never seen or visited before.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Yes it does matter that you don’t have a personal profile Allen, you have to have a Personal profile linked to your Page or you will not be able to Like other Pages as your Page.  Irritating but that’s the way Facebook works!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    What is the classification of your Page?  Is it classified as a Community Page?  The classification may also be the issue.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    You should be able to Like another Page as your Page when you Log in as your Page (upper right corner, down arrow, switch to your Page name)  If you have logged in as your Page, then navigate to another Page and Like it, it will not show up under your personal profile, only your Page Likes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonathan-Shepherd/1553375518 Jonathan Shepherd

    As far as i know it’s an ordinary business page, how do i tell if it’s a community page, there’s nothing on the page itself that says its a community page. 
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Peakland-Arts-Picture-Framers/120753374612906

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Yes, you are classified as a Local Business and I can see that you Like 21 pages as your Page.  So not sure what’s happening because you have done it.  Is it certain Pages?

  • http://twitter.com/JAScribbles Jenna Scribbles

    There is a way to Like another page from your FB page – I give the step by step way here – easy, works everytime.  http://www.jennascribbles.com/geek-stuff/how-a-facebook-page-can-like-or-follow-another-page/ 

    But… FB changes all the time so… Try my method for now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonathan-Shepherd/1553375518 Jonathan Shepherd

    Hello again,
                             Yes, it’s certain pages, i’ll recheck and get back to you.

  • mica

    Hi Grandma i have a question for you – i started a facebook page on its own and now realize i can’t like or message another facebook page since im not linked to a personal profile – my question is; is it now possible to link my page to a personal profile so that i can like other pages? Thanks

  • Choochiebubble

    I dont understand why when another page likes my fb page, my like number doesnt increase. It only increases when someone likes my page from their personal profile. Can someone explain this?

  • MC

    Great post, Grandma Mary!
     I am trying to track ‘Shares’ of a particular post on my facebook page 
    because I am running a giveaway, and to enter the drawing, the FB user must ‘Share’ my FB business page post .  The counter under the post does not show all of the ‘Shares’.  There are ‘Shares’ that I know have been posted but they are not showing in the counter.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    That is the way it works unfortunately.  Facebook only “counts” the personal profile Likes.  The reason is, if they counted Pages, the system could be completely gamed by people creating thousands of fake Pages to up the Likes on another Page.  It’s gamed bad enough with fake profiles but Pages would be worse.  Hope that helps!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Be careful there MC, that isn’t allowed as a way to enter the contest.  You can give extra entries for sharing and contest apps like Woobox and FanAppz have that tracking capability in their contest app software but you can’t require a share for an entry.  Hope that helps!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Sorry for the delay on replying to this Mica!  Yes, you can always create a personal profile and then make that an admin later.  The easiest way to make that profile an admin is to Like the Page as your personal profile, then go up to the Likes notifications up on the top bar from your Page, open that up and next to your profile (should be at the top since you liked it the most recently) there is a Make Admin button.  Hope that helps!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Good gracious me, sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  That is strange!  But I think I found your page at:   
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cook-Learn-Grow/146285912132854 and I see that you do like other Pages as your Page – a lot of local community pages and things.  So is it that you aren’t able to like any more pages or did you get the issue fixed?  

  • MC

    Did not know that.  I’m a newbie so that is good to know.  Thank you Grandma Mary. 

  • MC

    Can I post a link to a wordpress blog post and in that blogpost, tell people to “Share” the blog post on facebook for entry or is that also not allowed?

  • http://twitter.com/hollywood_cat Hollywood Cat

    I agree, it does defeat the object of having a business page in its own right.  Facebook don’t make it easy to understand their way of doing things and they don’t spell it out when signing up for a business page. They seem to think that everyone knows which clearly they don’t.  I have spent hours going round in circles and I’m a web developer!

  • guest

    how do I link my personal account to my page.

  • IvandaVGV

    Grandma Mary,  thank you so much for this helpful post.  Your note in red was exactly what I needed to know.  How silly of me to think that because I had to have a personal account to even create a business page that FB would be smart enough to know they were connected.  Followed your steps and got my search bar & Like ability back on my business page (even more mysteriously, they used to be there!).  Thanks again!

  • guest

     tell me how

  • jhake
  • Guest

    Just played around with FB for an hour to figure this out! It was anything but straightforward haha. Go to Edit Page -> Admin Roles, and add your personal page as an admin using your personal page’s email. Then, log onto your personal page and you’ll see it as a page you manage on the left-hand column. Click the name of the page, THEN click Edit Page -> Use Facebook as (Page Name). Voila! :)

  • helga

    this really helped me, thank you

  • Agy of Green Issues

    But do you have to like your own business page first before you can add your personal page email to the admin role? 

  • Joeshmo

    You are the only person on the internet that gave the proper instruction on how to link the two pages. EVEN Facebook themselves are completely vague or haven’t even provided accurate instructions on how to do this. Ridiculous. Thanks for all your help.

    Ok I have listened to your tricks and been lookin on fb for days and months now. I have emailed them and i have just about had it lol. It told me in the begining that if i got 30 likes on my page then i would be able to like other pages. HA HA what a joke!! on my fb page i have at the top bar is facebook, settings and logout. then underneath i have edit page, build and audienece and help and hide. I have no search bar and i do know how to like other business. I am a local event planner and fundraiser and would love to get my name out there for social networking. Please help grandma!!!!!!!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    It sounds like you don’t have a personal profile tied to your Facebook Page. That is the big reason you want to have a Personal Profile as an Admin of your Page. Because if you don’t have it, you won’t be able to Like other Pages as your Page. Here’s something that can help:

  • Sheryll

    So I’ve done this, but when I try to like a page as my page, it says it is already liked because I liked it under my personal profile. How do I search for a page to like but stay as my page instead of fb changing it over to my personal profile?

  • Sheryll

    Never mind- I guess it just needed time to kick in correctly, it’s now working right.

  • http://www.facebook.com/taylorsk Scott Taylor

    If another page likes my page, when I promote one of my post that targets “friends of friends,” will that ad be shown to people who like the page that liked my page? For example, say my page is “mamma’s cookie shop” and the page “we are cookie lovers” likes my page. And say the page “we are cookie lovers” has 1 million fans. Then say I write a post on my page saying “10 % off sale today at mamma’s cookie shop,” then click the “promote” button on and checkmark the box that says promote to “people who like your page and their friends.” Will my post be promoted to the 1 million fans of “we are cookie lovers”?

    Thanks for the helpful info! I have a question. Do you you know how can I show the Page likes my Facebook Page has??

Thank you very much!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to this, but there is now way to display that publicly. Other Pages can see the Pages your Page Likes (if that makes sense) but they can’t see the Pages that Like you.

    Or maybe I’m getting confused as to what you are trying to do. Anyone can see the Pages that your Page Likes – it’s on display on the right side of your Timeline. Does that help?

  • thefan

    Grandma! This article has really helped me work out a few problems but I still have one. I have a blog that I write under a pseudonym and have just created a facebook page for it. I want to interact with other pages, so tried to link my page with my personal account. However, it wouldn’t let me do so because I have to like the page before being made an admin. I’m worried that I may reveal myself by being the only person to like the page for a while and/or being an admin for the page! Any advice to promote my page without ruining my blogs image!?

  • http://twitter.com/MilaRad1 Mila Rad

    Nice article – thanks!

    Wondering if you have any ideas how to see all the pages my business page ‘likes’ – not in the annoying framed box, more as an export or way to make a list of connections? More like the personal page does by month. We’ve liked companies and media we would like to contact about press and can’t even see our own list cohesively.

    *Not who ‘likes’ us, who we ‘like – in an easy-to-read format.

    Thank you!

  • http://www.facebook.com/john.tingle.39 John Tingle

    i would like to know this too, my business has ‘liked’ loads of ages, but now i cant find them!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    No, the only way to view them is in that little annoying frame box. Irritating!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    So all you have to do is click the See all next to the “Likes” box on the right hand side of the Timeline just underneath “Recent Posts by Others” Hope that helps!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    So sorry for the late reply! You can be an Admin of the Page without Liking it – Facebook’s new process sort of “encourages” you to Like it but you don’t have to. The other thing is, people can’t see that you Like it unless they are friends with you – you can only see the other people who are your friends who Like the Page – not everyone who Likes the Page. Hope that helps!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    So sorry for the late reply! Unfortunately that is how Facebook is working lately and it really ticks me off! I think you should be able to see every Page you Like as your Page in your Home feed – but Facebook throttles it back. Irritating!

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Yikes – so sorry I missed this comment! I would suggest having a personal profile just for the purpose of the Admin – and then you can completely lock down your privacy – take your name out of the searches, make everything set to show to “Only Me”. That’s what I would recommend!

  • Natalie

    Hi there, I have found this to be very helpful, however I still can’t get mine to work. My page is set up as a business, facebook.com/Vintagecuff, and I have tried to add my personal page (which does not have anything on it) as an Admin Role but it will not let me. A message displays saying “we weren’t able to add all your admins. You can only add your friends or people who have already liked your page.” I don’t get it. I have tried clicking on “use Facebook as Vintagecuff” but it still will not register my likes or comments on other pages. If I post a comment or like, it shows for me but does not register my profile photo or name and if I am not logged in It will not show on the other page so obviously they are not seeing it. Any help you can provide would be appreciated as you are the only one that has come close to helping me with this issue. Thank you for your time.
    Regards,
    Natalie

    Hi Grandma Mary, this was SO useful- thank you! I have liked a few pages from my page and the list of my Likes is always at the top of my business page. No matter how many posts I have posted since then, the Likes box refuses to move down the timeline! Is there any way I can hide this box?

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    So glad you liked it! No unfortunately you can’t hide this box from your Facebook Page. Personal profiles can hide their Likes but for Pages it’s public information and you can’t move it anywhere either!

    Great information! Thank you! It has been driving me nuts trying to like other dentist offices we work with and I am unable to do so. I did not start our FB page. It was established when I started here. Is there a way for me to turn my business only page into a personal page so that I may like and comment on other pages posts? Also when I sign into FB on my iPhone it acts as if it is a personal page (different main pic etc..) Do you know why this is?

    Thank you very much for this information on ‘Liking Facebook Pages”. Most helpful and would also like to hear if you have anything to say about “How to Build Huge Likes for Your Facebook Page”. ;-)

    Hey, Mary – great video. Wondered if you could help with this. When I open my page I still see up top that I am logged in as my personal account. But my settings tell me I am “posting, commenting, and liking as” my page. Maybe this is why all my liked pages appear on my personal timeline, not on my page. Do you know how I can fix this? Thanks.

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    Yes, usually the default settings are to comment “as your Page” even when you are logged in as your personal profile. What you need to do is to go up to the wheel in the upper right corner, and then switch to using Facebook as your Page – just click on the Page name from the drop-down menu. Now you will have to go and “re-like” the pages as your Page. Hope that helps!

    I watched your video hoping to see if I come across an “empty company page” with no details showing, should I like the page as “my page”. The title compliments my Business activities. If i like it as my page and claim it could i put my company logo picture on it too?

    Not sure what you might be looking at but it sounds like these types of Pages could be Places or Interests. Not sure what you are looking at. You can claim a Place and then it’s possible to put your information there but you have to show documentation that it is your place. Hope that helps!

    Hi Grandma Mary! I need help! The top right hand corner of my page only says Settings and Logout and doesn’t say anything about being logged into my page! I really want to be able to like other pages! Thanks so much!

    Yes, so you do have a Business-only Page. And all you need to do is to add an Admin to that page. Here’s my handy-dandy post on how to do that! http://www.andreavahl.com/facebook/how-to-easily-add-a-facebook-admin-to-your-page.php Hope that helps!

    So sorry I didn’t reply earlier! But all you need to do is to add an Admin to that page. Here’s my handy-dandy post on how to do that! http://www.andreavahl.com/facebook/how-to-easily-add-a-facebook-admin-to-your-page.php That will make it a “regular” page! Hope that helps!

    can you join groups under a business page ?

  • http://www.GrandmaMaryShow.com Grandma Mary

    No, unfortunately you can’t!

    Hello Grandama Mary… I would like to know if I create a fan page on Facebook.. will my friends on mi personal profile know that I’m the owner of that page? Because I’m just starting a lifestyle blog and I am a little shy so I don’t want people knowing it is me. :)

  • kjuu

    Still confused — you’d think FB would be user-friendly, since so many people use it!

    Try this out: business page connected to my personal page, I’m an admin, I’ve been able to like other business pages with no problem.

    Another business made a personal page *instead* of a business page, and I am unable to like them as my business page. There is NO like button option at all. I tested this theory and found that my business page cannot like personal pages. I can like other business pages, though.

    I’ve not seen this referenced in any of my research into this problem. Thoughts?

    I think you should stay incognito by making a separate profile under a pseudonym (Pick something convincing like Sawada Shin (my real name)), then make your page and post as the “other you”.

    Your hilarious, First video i’ve seen of you and I’m a regular now.

    Grandma Mary I have a Coupon page to teach beginners called Sassy Coupon Girl! And I want to have one of the big like thumbs on my page because everyone is having a problem liking it! I have 50000 people that have been reached but only 612 likes in 3 days not bad I think lol but still how do I do this? I had to create from a personal page because FB shut me down because of friend request!

    Hi, I have a page and I like other pages as my page – but I am noticing that a lot of other pages like my page using their personal facebook profile instead of their page. Many make a point out of saying that they want to like my page from their personal FB profile instead so that it ‘counts’. What do they mean? Does it not count as a like if I do it from my page? Is it some kind of courtesy that they use their personal profile to like instead of their pages? I have seen it so often and am curious. Thank you!

  • Brad Woods

    Hello, thanks to you Grandma Mary, my page is growing as we speak!! My biz is going up even though the wrath of Amazon says NO! With FB doing away with marketing giveaways on November 5th I know now what I am up against! I also know its time to unleash everything I have cause there will be nowhere to put it once they shut the doors! Thanks again! everything-a2z.com is the actual site I am working to pick up!

  • Jennifer

    Hi! Thank you for this post. Do you know how I can like/comment on other pages from my page when I’m on my phone? It always goes back to my personal account. Thanks!
