15 Frequently Asked Questions About Facebook Pages

Facebook QuestionsFacebook provides a comprehensive Help Center with its own range of FAQs along with helpful content from a vast number of users. [There's even a handy Leaderboard - Top Contributor - with points system to see which users have been most helpful. Links just go to the user's personal Profile, though. It would be great to see all their answers in one place, similar to user profiles on Quora.]

The Help Center can be difficult to navigate and zero in on the exact solution for the issue you’re having on Facebook. I often find the most reliable way to find information on Facebook is to actually do a Google search! :)

Then, there’s Facebook Questions which I have yet to find useful, quite frankly. It’s not intuitive to navigate and search for accurate answers.

You could certainly search for answers to your Facebook questions on Quora – in many ways, this platform is easier and more helpful than Facebook’s Help Center and Questions.

There’s also Yahoo Answers, LinkedIn Answers, Ask.com, Get Satisfaction… but you could keep digging and still not find what you’re looking for!

So, in the interests of simplifying life, this post is one of a series of Facebook FAQs gathered from the questions regularly asked on my own Page wall and via Twitter. Just about every question warrants its own separate blog post and I may just do that over time. Meantime, I felt it would be a more useful resource in one place.

Feel free to ask questions in the comments section below that are not listed here, and I’ll do my best to reply and/or add to the follow up FAQ posts. This post focuses on questions pertaining to Fan Pages. I have a separate list of Profile-related FAQs to follow.

1. How do I secure a username for my fan page?

You first need to get a minimum of 25 fans. Then go to http://facebook.com/username to register a unique username (vanity URL) for your fan Page. See this Help section on Facebook for more assistance with usernames.

If the username you want shows as not available (and when you go to pull up the URL, nothing comes up), you’ll need to contact Facebook directly. See this directory of forms. I have not yet found a form specifically for this request, but you could try a form like the one for intellectual property infringement.

2. How do I switch between posting on my Page as my Profile and as my Page?

To post as your Page, in the top nav bar click Account > Use Facebook as Page. Or, in the Admins area at the top right of your Page, click Use Facebook as xxxx (your Page name).

To post as your Profile, click the Edit Page button > Your Settings > and make sure the Posting Preferences box is unchecked > click the Save Changes button. Then make sure you’re using Facebook as your Profile (Account > Switch back to your name). If you want to leave the default so you always post as your Page regardless of whether you’re viewing Facebook in Profile mode or Page mode, leave the button checked as shown in the screenshot below:

Facebook Page - edit settings

See also this Essential Guide to Facebook Page Upgrades for more help.

3. Where did the Suggest to Friends feature go?

Facebook removed this feature for all Pages and instead encourages users to use the Share button found at the bottom left of all Pages. See this entry in Facebook’s Help Center: How can people suggest my Page to their friends?

However, the Suggest to Friends feature does still appear for Admins and has been moved to the top right of your Page now in the Admins area. I have heard reports that, since the Page Upgrades, the form is very buggy and that the friends don’t always receive the invites. Hopefully this is being resolved. Keep an eye on Facebook’s Known Issues Page.

As a sidenote, I’ve never been a fan of the Suggest to Friends feature – except for having other people suggest your Page to their friends. Suggesting to your own friends doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, because your friends are already connected to you. You could just periodically @ tag your Page on your Profile and/or use the Share button and include an enticing incentive, not just “come and like my Page.” ;)

There is an app called Suggest This which I took for a test run recently. However, suggestions are limited to just 12 friends at a time (a limit imposed by Facebook). I’m told by GroSocial, the app creators, that users can come back daily to suggest in batches of 12. I’m not sure how many users would go to the trouble of suggesting a Page 12 friends at a time, but oh well!

4. How do I get more fans?

There are many creative online and offline ways to build your fanbase. If you focus on building organically by using a two-part blend of 1) providing consistent quality content, and 2) providing consistent quality engagement, over time, the quantity comes. For a list of 21 ways to build your fanbase, see this popular post I wrote last year. I have a follow up post in the hopper with another 21 ways to get more fans! Stay tuned.

The secret isn’t growing a huge fan base. We have 100,000 Facebook fans, but those fans have all come to us organically. We believe the more organic the growth, the more loyal the fans, the more likely they will be repeat customers. – Cam Balzer, vice president of marketing at Threadless

5. When a Page likes my Page, does it affect my total fan count?

No. Only likes by Facebook users (personal Profiles) are counted as a fan.

6. How can I see all the Pages that have liked my Page?

I’d love to see a simple solution to this one myself. However, to my knowledge the only way you can tell is a) when other Pages write on your Page wall (because they have to like your Page first in order to post content/comment) and/or b) look on the Info tab section of any fan Page and you’ll see a list of the Pages they’ve liked (the same place where liked Pages are listed on your personal Profile).

7. How can I run a contest on my fan page within Facebook’s guidelines?

Bottom line, you have to use a third party app. Now that Facebook replaced Static FBML with iFrames, you are basically creating your own app so could run a contest that way so long as you comply to all of Facebook’s Promotions Guidelines. See this comprehensive guide on Facebook promotions that I wrote for Social Media Examiner.

8. How do I add custom content to my fan page now that the Static FBML app has gone away?

Select a third party app provider and/or use Facebook’s new iFrames. For a long list of possible app solutions, see this directory. For excellent tutorials on creating your own iFrame content, see my friend Tim Ware’s blog at HyperArts.

9. How can I create a Welcome tab with non-fan and fan-only content?

Many app providers are now offering simple solutions with two clearly marked text or image areas where you paste in what you want non-fans to see and fans to see. This is often referred to as a “reveal tab,” “fan-only content,” and “fangating.” See this list of app solutions for ideas.

10. Why do @ tags only work some of the time?

You can @ tag any friend, or fan Page you’ve liked, or Event to which you’ve RSVP’d. However, depending on a few temporary bugs on Facebook and possibly browser issues, @ tags are not always 100% reliable. I’ve found clearing cache, restarting my browser, switching from Firefox to Safari or Chrome, or logging out of Facebook and back in again can help in getting @ tags to function properly. This goes for the new @ tags in comments too.

11. When I @ tag another Page, why doesn’t my post show on their wall?

There are several possible explanations. There is no setting to prevent @ mentions from showing on Page walls, so that’s not it. Some say, for Pages that set their default wall view to be posts by Page only, @ tags don’t show up – but they do. Really, the only explanations are a) a Facebook bug or, more likely, b) the Page owner chooses to remove @ mentions to keep their wall clean.

12. How do I publish my tweets to my fan Page?

I’m not a big fan of pouring your entire tweetstream onto your Facebook wall – either personal Profile and/or fan Page. Unless, of course, you don’t tweet that often. Even so, there’s a whole different language on Twitter with @, #, RT, acronyms etc. and any Facebook user who is not on Twitter won’t necessarily understand this language.

tweet wordle

Example Twitter Language

Plus, if you overpopulate your Page wall with automated content, you could be hurting your EdgeRank score (the algorithm that chooses what to show in the News Feed of your friends/fans).

What to do is to only post some of your tweets on to Facebook using an app like Selective Twitter. Once you add the app to your Page and set up the configuration, just adding #fb to the end of a tweet will post just that tweet to your wall.

Another idea is to just post your favorites to your fan page wall using an RSS app like RSS Graffiti or Social RSS. Your Twitter favorites has its own unique RSS feed – the best way to find it is to log out of Twitter and look at your own profile whilst logged out; click on Favorites in the right panel/column, and you’ll see the little icon for RSS.

Of course, a great solution is simply to use a tool that allows you to post to multiple social profiles, e.g. Facebook Profile, Facebook Fan Page, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. But I don’t recommend posting the exact same content to multiple profiles at the same time. Mix up the wording and add a bit more to Facebook posts because you have 420 characters vs. 140 with Twitter.  Check out my favorite HootSuite, plus also TweetDeck.

You can also pull in all your tweets onto a tab using an app like Involver

13. How do I publish my fan Page updates to my Twitter account?

Try the Facebook Twitter app. However, it has been buggy since the Page Upgrades.

facebook to twitter

One workaround is to simply burn a feed of your Page using likes of FeedBurner – just paste in the URL of your fan page and you’ll get the feed. FeedBurner is owned by Google; once burned, you then get an option to post that feed to a Twitter account. Posts are truncated with a goo.gl link that goes back to your fan Page. I have a secondary Twitter account that I use exclusively for this purpose at @socialmediamari.

14. Can I pre-schedule content to my fan Page and include links with a thumbnail?

Sure. HootSuite does this nicely – add your Facebook Page under Settings > Social Networks. Then when you add an update with a link, just like on Facebook, you’ll be able to cycle through the thumbnail choices and select the one you want.

hootsuite add social networks

Just be careful of overly using third party apps to post all your content on your Page wall. Manual posts get the best EdgeRank (News Feed optimization).

15. What is the optimal number of times per day to post content on a Facebook Fan Page?

You’ll need to experiment to find your own sweetspot. For my Page, I’ve found the ideal frequency is about 2-3 times per day, no more. Different audiences respond to different content and frequencies. The key is relevancy and consistency, coupled with engagement. (That is, unless, you’ve set up your Page to be more of a news source with automated feeds – these types of Pages are not that common, though).

I recently attended a webinar led by ExactTarget in which they revealed the #1 reason people unlike brands on Facebook is the company posted too frequently. So, I recommend tracking your unsubscribe and unlike rates each day as measured against what you’re posting and how often. (“Unsubscribes” are fans who are still a fan, but they’ve chosen to hide your posts from their News Feed). I’ll be covering this piece in-depth on an upcoming Facebook Insights free webinar – click here to register.

Okay, that’s the 15 FAQs for now! I’ll follow up with another FAQ post containing questions pertaining to using your personal profile on Facebook, along with additional Fan Page FAQs.

Now, it’s your turn – did you find these questions and answers valuable? What did I miss? Is there a huge question that is always being asked that I overlooked? Do let me know in the comments below!

    assuming you’re an admin, try making sure you’re signed in under your personal profile so Facebook will have access to your friends list. i had the same problem when i was signing directly into our band page instead of working as an admin from my personal profile. hope this helps!

  • http://www.facebook.com/antidepressant.vocalist Travis Ritter

    i stumbled upon this page while attempting to find a solution to a different inquiry which i’ll include after the praises ;-) i’d already learned how to stop posting as my fan page when using my personal profile before locating this page, but actually just finished explaining this (after having forgotten and needing to look it up again) to our guitarist yesterday. if i’d have found this article first i’d have linked to it. it’s bookmarked now, as well as your website on the whole. you’ve included some excellent information as well as seem to be good about responding to your legions of fans/followers. i’ve attempted to answer some questions posted since your most recent reply to comments on this article, so hopefully i’ve provided a bit of assistance. now for my question…although a seemingly simple inquiry it may not be one that you come across often:

    we recently reached our 25th fan on our fan page, allowing us to assign a username. however, our guitarist has a somewhat generic profile he liked the page from, and i had to like our page initially from the generic profile i accidentally created when signing in on our band’s e-mail, which is the associated login for where i initially created our fan page from. but now i simply admin from my personal page, no longer need to use that login at all anymore, and have a two-part question:

    1) we’ve already had a “friend” like our page and then unlike it a couple of weeks later. the page has only been up for a month, and we’re not sure if something like that will happen again. we recently hit 27 fans and decided we want to unlike the page from both generic profiles. our guitarist already did so. i’m worried that if i do so as well and then we lose a fan, that Facebook reserves the right to rescind the assigned username. any idea if this could happen? or is it simply once you have a username you get to keep it, even if all your fans were to unlike you en masse (not that i’m expecting that to happen)

    2) how do i get rid of that blasted generic profile i accidentally created? and moreso, another comment on here suggests that even if i manage to delete it, it will still come back if i ever use that login again (not that it seems necessary for me to do so anymore, since i admin from my personal profile)

    Thank you Mari, you have excellent information on this site and it will be my go-to from here on in! I will follow you on twitter and tweet this page upon my next sign in!

    I was so happy to see how to get rid of the community page link and add my business page link instead! I’ve had a few folks like the community page and then I had to tell them they were in the wrong place. So aggravating! Now, thanks to you, my company name goes right to my company page! Thanks!

    Thank you for this post. Another question: I manage a page and have been trying to promote an event by posting details on other walls as my page. I make the post with or without a link to the event and it appears on the wall as you would expect. When I return to the wall as myself (not as the page) I cannot see the post I just made. Only when I use FB as the page can I see what I have posted. I’ve tried restarting my computer, etc. and nothing seems to help.  I was able to do this last month for another event without any problem. Any ideas?

    “6. How can I see all the Pages that have liked my Page?”Im not sure if this has been updated anywhere (didnt see it) The answer Mari gave is incorrect, you can see all of the pages that have liked your fanpage. Simply click on the “like this” link under the fan counter on your page. It will open a new window where your fans are listed. Top left will be a drop down menu. Click on it and select “Pages”. There you go. This is great for creating cross marketing opportunities! As well, it is reciprocal to like these pages back. Also, I want to state about “Questions” being useful…wow! Heck yes! These are gold! Firts of all, when someone answers a q, or follows it, all of their friends are then notified! As well, it creates conversation, because it elicits a response from the fan. It can be used to ask so many questions about what your fans want or need, to entertain, and have fun with and more. If you need help in real time (we are a social media marketing agency) as we engage on our facebook page all day… http://www.facebook.com/talkingfinger

  • http://www.facebook.com/SMtalkingfinger William DeRosa

    This is an issue right now that no one seems to know the answer to. I have searched everywhere. I know what you are saying, because even posting as mine or my clients pages, making a post as the page, I can always see it as the page. When I log into my personal account, I dont see the post I made. Yet I can still see about half of the pages that posted…some are there, some are missing.

    I want the “like” button on my website to open my “like” page of Facebook without the viewer having to log in to FB just to see the page. I can see it works with many other “like” buttons on other sites I have visited, but no matter what I try it always asks for log-in to even see my fan page. I’ve tried all the usual searches so I hope you can help with this one. Thanks, Ken

    Hi Mari,

    Not sure if you’ve anwered this. A couple yrs ago I’d created a biz page for a web client. I accidentally associated this with my personal Facebook account. Big mistake. I tried every which way I could to separate these, but couldn’t find a way. Also tried to start fresh and create a new biz page for her — but it wouldn’t let me because of the duplicate name. So we (client and I) muddled through with this cludged together arrangement.

    Cut to now: Client has moved on. We’d like to separate this. Everything I find at Facebook seems to indicate it’s not possible. Is there **any** way to do this?

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    I seek your kind assistance on the following matter that is
    very crucial for my Company Page made on Face book

     
    Problem:

     

    The above page has been made under my work  by an external SMO company.

     

    For this page creation a separate profile id was created.

     

    The last username that I had used for Login purpose was via gmail

     

    Now the problem I am facing is that in due course of time,
    people managing the page have added many unknown people as friends on the  profile and further to it somebody had changed the password
    somehow so while I was trying to resolve this issue by entering code sent by
    facebook ,the account got locked and now to reset password and reopen the
    account it is showing that I have to identify people added as friends in my  profile which I am not in position to do.
    Moreover no other verification method option is coming.

     

    Kindly suggest me some way of getting back access to my
    profile and hence access to  company page.

  • Cannabis Country

    I can’t do none of this. I tried to do number two Change how I post and there is no nav bar. Also when I go to edit page, and settings there is no posting preference box. I am also no way a “nube” when it comes to this type of stuff. Just look at my blog: Cannabis-Country.blogspot.com

    I really need help though. I can’t even ad a picture to my admin. It still shows me as a silhouette. Yes I have a profile picture but when I post on another persons wall it shows my blank admin picture and doesn’t even say Cannabis Country. It says nothing at all. I want people to know who is posting it. Because if I post on a page that is relevant to my blog and Facebook page people won’t know that because it says nothing. This is really frustrating and I have had my page for a week or so now and still have not fixed this problem. Is it because my Facebook page is for a brand?

    If someone would be willing to help me out with this you can find my contact info on my blog. It would be MUCH appreciated. Facebook has been a headache for me when it shouldn’t be. It is very user unfriendly in my eyes. You can even get a response from them when you contact them either. Pain in the butt.

    Has anyone found an answer on the tag issue? I have several FB fan pages. Mentions show up on some and not on others. I see no differences in settings (nor options to prevent mentions). I’m confused!

  • Otoabasi Umonting

    It depends on the plugin you installed. If it’s only the “like button” you installed, then it’s the one that will show at the top of your blog posts, with like counts. When people click on that, they are only sharing your post to their facebook wall from your blog; it’s not going to reflect on your page. If you have the “Like Box” plugin installed, where you have your fan faces showing (Depending on the options you chose), and people are clicking ‘like’ from there, then it should reflect on your page. If not, then there’s probably a fault within the plugin or your blog theme. I hope this helps.

  • Carrie Brickhouse

    Hi. I am trying to do a facebook page.  I am not computer savvy at all but need the site for my business.  When I went under edit and Features I meant to press feature links but accidently masked page owners.
    Is there anyway I can change this?  Also, how to i get the websites I like to show up on the left side of the page-I know I am in the right area but still not sure what to do.

    If you still have any time or thoughts,  how in the heck (step by step) how do I do publish this.  I think I have to have 25 likes first but how can someone like you if they can’t find you.      

    Please help or I am going to have to give up.  I hate to give up but I can’t stay sleepless but so many nights.

    I have been searching for answers to a few questions everywhere and can’t seem find them. I’m hoping this site will help.  I have a business page and I’m wondering how I can get it to show up in google search.  Also, many people that search for my business page in Facebook, it doesn’t show up in the results box.  I’ve looked over my settings countless times and can’t seem to find any settings other than the publish one, which is set to allow publishing.  Its very frustrating when people can only find my page and like it when they’re provided with a link.  Thanks in advance to any solutions to these questions.
