How and Why to Like Other Facebook Pages as Your Page

UPDATE 4/1/16:  Pages have changed the way they work – See the updates on this post:  https://www.andreavahl.com/facebook/facebook-changes-log-page-like-pages.php

 

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!
