Surprise! You went into your Facebook Page to a) either share something on/from a business Page you want to follow or b) to “like” a new business Page and found the traditional interface had changed or you couldn’t find where to search for a Page. As it’s a good practice to Like or Follow relevant/complementary businesses, there are 2 ways to “Like” a Page as a Business (Manager) Page:
- From within a Page
- From within a personal profile
Important! As of August 28, 2017, the ability to manage these tasks is ONLY available via desktop at this time. Anticipating that Facebook will add these features to mobile/tablet devices soon.
Note: "Page" refers to a business Page or a business Page managed from Business Manager. The process is the same.

Here’s a short video of how to “Like” a Page from your Page, how to “Like” a Page as a Page you manage from your personal page, and how to find out who your Page liked when it’s all done. Lots of B2B love going on here!
First, go to your Page. On right sidebar, click on “See Pages Feed.”
On a Business Page (Updated August 3, 2017):
Next, you’ll see a green button on top of the newsfeed. Click this button and type the Page you want to “like” by typing its name in the search bar that pops up. Once the Page you want appears, click “Save”, and it’ll be added to your Pages list.
You can accomplish the same thing from your personal profile by typing the Page you’re seeking in the search bar. When it appears, click to that Page and you’ll see a row of tabs as below. Click on the 3 dots (far right) and a dropdown will appear, in which you’ll see “Like as Your Page”. When you click that, you should see another dropdown pop up that will enable you to select the Page that you wish to “Like” as..
When you click on the dropdown arrow, you’ll see the Pages for which you have management permissions, select that then click “save”.

How to Post on the Business Page that you’ve “Liked”:
Go to the Page that you “Liked” and want to post on. Go to the status area. Write your post then click on the small dropdown you’ll see in upper right corner of status area. In that dropdown, you’ll see the option to “Post as..” and then select your managed Page that you wish to post as.
