How to Like Facebook Content as Your Business

Written by Amanda Marotta on . Posted in Facebook, Social Media

When you are an admin of a business on Facebook, you have the ability to like a post as either yourself or the business. It is essential to understand the difference and how to change between the two. Liking content that your business posted as your business can look unprofessional. On the other hand, liking content that your business posted as yourself (your personal Facebook account) is absolutely okay! In fact, it is more than okay.

To help our clients differentiate between the two actions, we created a simple visual tutorial for you:

In this example, we will be focusing on the imaginative business, The Flooring Business, which is owned by John Smith.
When you see a post on Facebook, you will see it look like this. You will notice four icons: the like, comment, share, and your business icon with a small arrow next to it. Notice, this post was shared by our example business “The Flooring Business.” Now say, John Smith wants to like this post. . .
When you see the profile picture for your business in the small circle on the right, it means that ALL ACTIONS will be completed as your business. For example, if you were to right now, like, comment or share this post – you would be doing so as your business. Now, you do not want to do that since your business created this post (double-sharing is not recommended).
To switch between your business and personal account, locate the small arrow next to your business icon. Remember, when your business profile picture is seen in the small circle on the right, it means all actions will be done as your business.
After you click on the small arrow in the righthand corner, you will see your two profiles. You can switch between your business profile and personal profile in the section. Notice that, currently, your business profile is highlighted. That means it is in use and whatever action you will do; you will do as your business.
To switch to your personal profile, simply click on your profile name (i.e., John Smith). Now, any action you do from here on out is going to be as yourself not your business.
As you can see, your profile picture is now located in the small circle. Whenever you are trying to determine whether you are liking it as your business or as yourself, look at the icon in the small circle.

Remember, you can always like your business’ content as yourself, but you should avoid liking or re-sharing content that your business posted as your business. As your business, you can respond to comments made on your business page. If you are still a little confused, please do not hesitate to leave us a comment, and we would be happy to address it for you.

Facebook Admin Access

Written by Shannon Vogel on . Posted in Facebook

Sometimes it can be confusing trying to understand Facebook’s admin process. Here’s some help to get you where you need to go!

To access a Facebook Business page, there’s no login and password to get you in. It’s all done through administrative rights.

How do you know if you’re an admin to a Facebook business page? Go directly to the page.

If you don’t see any text at the top, you’re not an admin.

If you see text similar to this, you’re an admin!

Facebook Admin Access

Written by Shannon Vogel on . Posted in Facebook

Having trouble getting or giving admin access to your Facebook page? Whether you are using Facebook Business Manager or not, there’s a simple way to see who has access to your Facebook page, give access to others or approve a request to give someone else access to your Facebook page.

All you have to do:

  1. Simply, go to the pageĀ  (logged into your personal account)
  2. Click settings. (top right)
  3. Click page roles. (left hand side)

*If a request has been submitted for access through Facebook business manager, you will see it here. Simply click approve next to the Agency you’d like to approve and Facebook does the rest.

Sometimes it can be confusing trying to understand Facebook’s admin process.

To access a Facebook Business page, there’s no login and password to get you in. It’s all done through administrative rights. Anyone you approve admin rights to does NOT have access to your personal profile, your personal posts or your personal login or password.

To give access to a person rather than an agency:

Start typing the person’s name and if their name doesn’t appear from a dropdown list (see below)

Then, all you have to do is go to their profile, copy their unique URL and paste it in the box.

Facebook makes changes ALL the time. If you find this information and it’s out of date, please leave a comment here or email Shannon@creatingyourspace.com!
