17th January 2020: This article was updated to reflect changes that Facebook has made to improve this feature from a mobile device.
How to Like a Facebook Page as your own Facebook Page
Building your community on Facebook is a useful and rewarding process, but there are undoubtedly times when you may want to do certain actions as your Page. In this case, we’re going to take a look at how to Like another Page as your Page.
You may, for example, want to like another Page as your own Facebook Page (rather than your personal account)
- Visit the Page you want to Like
- Click the menu
- Choose “Like as your Page”
- Select your own Facebook Page
- Click Submit
From a browser on laptop/desktop
From a mobile device
While Liking a Facebook Page as your own Facebook Page has been a feature available for ‘full’ browsers (laptops etc.) for a while now, it has to date been something that was disproportionately difficult to do on a mobile. That’s now changed where Facebook is now prompting you when you Like a Page to give you the option to additionally Like the Page as a Page that you administer.
Building your community
This helps you to build your community and engage with these Pages going forward. It is worth noting that Liking a Page as a Page (and indeed, you’ll find this when other Pages do it to yours), it doesn’t ‘count’ toward the total number of Likes (so your Page Like count won’t increment).
This can sometimes cause a little confusion if you’re asking other businesses to Like your Page, but you notice the count doesn’t go up.
Seeing your Pages Feed on a desktop browser
But the whole point of this isn’t just to get your name out there. You’ve got to engage, converse, add value – as we’ve discussed before Engagement is better than followers. So, Facebook has kindly provided a nifty section on your Facebook Page called the Pages Feed (you’ll find this on your own Facebook Page on the right-hand side, shown above).
You can access your Pages Feed on your mobile device
This section allows you to see content (a timeline) from the Pages that your Page has Liked. From here, it’s really simple to Like and Comment on your Page – thus increasing your exposure and starting a meaningful dialogue with your community. This can be a useful feature for Pages that focus a little more on the B:B communities, or those wanting to simply interact with other Business Pages more.
