One of our most popular blog posts at the Maine SEO blog is “How to Like a Facebook Fan Page…As a Fan Page.” But now the set up of Facebook has changed a bit with the new Facebook Timeline for Pages design and so we need to update the instructions a bit. So below is an updated version of Nicki’s fantastic blog with some more recent screenshots! Hope this helps!
“That may sound a little confusing, but you can actually like a Facebook fan page as a fan page you administer. Instead of “liking”, Facebook calls this “adding to your page’s favorites”.
Why would you want to do this? You might want to call attention to a client or a favorite business of yours, or simply provide another resource/fan page you think your fans would be interested in.
Start by logging into the account you administer.
Then click “Add to My Page’s Favorites”.
Click this option and you’ll see a pop-up window, where you can choose from the pages you admin:
And that’s all there is to it!
Once you’ve liked a page from your page it gives you the opportunity to talk about them on your page and link to them at the same time so you show up on their page wall as well. This is a great way of getting in front of fans of their page while promoting their business to yours as well. Note: Keep things non salesy. No one wants a bunch of spam on their Facebook wall and it’s the fastest way to get your update deleted from their page.
