Almost everybody nowadays has a personal Facebook account, or at least knows what it is, and maybe decided it’s just not for them. Many users create fan pages for musicians, athletes or groups they enjoy. Most of these people ask their friends to become a fan of their page though their personal Facebook statuses, or by personally asking them to like their fan page. But what if you’re business creating a fan page? How hard is it to get people to like your business’s fan page? Is it harder if you’re a small business, or does it matter at all? For argument’s sake, let’s just that it’s as as easy to get people to your “like” fan page as it is to “friend” your personal Facebook page.
True or False?
False: Facebook does not allow administrators of fan pages to ask people to like their fan page through Facebook. Now, this doesn’t mean on your personal Facebook page that you can’t ask your friends to like your business’s fan page. You just can’t do this while logged in as an administrator of your fan page. Professionals recommend you find a way to get people, who already like your fan page, to start discussing your organization through their personal Facebook pages. This will spread the word of mouth of your organization through a mass amount of channels on Facebook. In the end, it takes a lot of work to get your organization recognized, but with enough hard work, you’re able to maximize your organization’s potential to be seen by the massive Facebook community.
