We’ve been absent from our Q+A duties for a while, so it’s definitely time to start again! This week’s question comes from Mary in Arizona. Mary asks:
I want to tell my Facebook friends on my personal profile about my business’s facebook page. How do I do it?
Great question, Mary! There are several options, depending on what you’d like to accomplish.
If you’d simply like to mention your page and link your friends to it, you can tag your page in a post. Tagging a page is just like tagging a person, so you’ll write your post and when you want to mention your page, type @ and then start typing the name of your page. Facebook will pop up with a list people and pages it thinks you might mean. Just select your page from the list and finish typing your post. That would look something like this:
Hey guys! Check out my page, @Social Kaboom — and don’t forget to like it while you’re there!
If you’d like to offer your friends more information about your page, you should “Share” it. Navigate to your page and scroll down to the bottom. Towards the bottom of the left column, you’ll see the “Share” link. Click it, add your optional message, and click “Share Page.” That will post your page to your news feed with your page’s profile pic and some basic information about it.
The first two methods both work the same way, in the end — they post your page to your news feed. The third option works different, but does require you to be an admin on your page. In this method, you’re actually inviting specific people to like your page, and they’ll get a notification about it once you do. To invite people to your page, navigate to your page and find “Invite friends” in the right column. It’s the last link under the “Admins” box. Click the link, then select the friends you want to invite, and click the “Submit” button.
There you have it — three ways to tell your Facebook friends about your page. Try them all to see which is best for you! In addition, you may want to ask your friends to tag or share your page with their friends, helping you spread the word about your business!
