Facebook Changes that Affect How You Use it for Your Business

facebook_headerIt sounds trite, but it is true – Facebook changes every day. It’s hard to keep up, so here’s some help for those of you who have a Facebook business page.

Facebook has changed the way you access your Facebook business page.Here’s how to do some of the most common tasks from your page.

Access business page Facebook feed: This is now a link in your page’s sidebar.
Access your page and click on ‘See Pages Feed’ on the left-hand side of the page to access posts from all the pages you like as your business.

Like other business pages as your business page: There are two ways of doing this.

  • From the page feed (see above), click ‘Like other pages’ at the top of the screen. A search bar will appear. Type the name of the page you want to like and select it from the drop-down menu; click ‘Save’
  • Or, visit a page on Facebook. Click the three dots on the right-hand side of the page’s cover photo. Select ‘Like as your page’ from the drop-down menu.

Comment and like posts as your business page: If you see a post in your business page news feed, your likes and comments automatically appear as being from your Facebook page. If you see a post in your regular Facebook feed, you need to select your page: underneath the post you want to interact with on the right-hand side you’ll see a thumbnail image of yourself. Click this and select your page from the drop-down menu

A (Sad) Note About Mobile

The bad news is that you can’t do any of the above from either the Facebook app or the Pages Manager app on your mobile device. Instead, you’ll need to access Facebook via your mobile browser.
