How to Like a Facebook Fan Page…as a Fan Page

That may sound a little confusing, but you can actually like a Facebook fan page as a fan page you administer. Instead of “liking”, Facebook calls this “adding to your page’s favorites”.

Why would you want to do this? You might want to call attention to a client or a favorite business of yours, or simply provide another resource/fan page you think your fans would be interested in.

Start by logging into the account you administer.

Then, go to the fan page you’d like to favorite. Scroll down until you see the option to “Add to My Page’s Favorites” at the very bottom on the left hand side.

Click this option and you’ll see a pop-up window, where you can choose from the pages you admin:

Take it a step further

With Facebook’s most recent update, you can even change your featured favorites – those five favorites that appear on your fan page wall. Go into your Edit options, then into Featured.

The page(s) you check off will always appear on your wall. And that’s all there is to it!

    Hi, I’d like to see the Likes list on a fan page that I administer. The fan page has liked one other fan page, but I don’t see the Likes section in the left sidebar. Do you know how to get it to show up? Thanks!

    Never mind…turned out to be my mistake. The “like” of the other fan page must not have been done properly. Working now.
    Thanks anyway!

    Glad it’s working now! Just be sure to “add as your page’s favorites” whenever you’d like to “like” a page as your fan page!

    The Fan pages I want to like do not have “Add to My Page’s Favorites” at the very bottom on the left hand side. Any other suggestions how to like?


    I don’t know what the problem could be but you can also like a page by
    1) Using Facebook as a Page
    2) Clicking the “Like” button on the Page (instead of “add to my page’s favorites” link.
    Here is a post that shows your how.

    I have recently created a Facebook fan page for my business and it is not linked to my personal or any other page. The problem I am having is, I can’t seem to like any other Facebook page. I don’t even see the option to search for another fan page while logged onto my fan page. For example I would like to add other fan page and write a note on their awl “New Fan” so that my page also gets some exposure. Can you please help me, would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

    Love this article, however, I keep running into the same problem with these instructions – that is, how do I get to the Fan Page I want to like? Facebook keeps taking me to my Admin Panel, however, I DON’T SEE ANYWHERE TO SEARCH, OR ENTER A PAGE I LIKE THERE?!?! Help!!!!

    Lol..I’m new at this and would like for to be able to first find other fan pages, from MY FAN page (from the admin panel), but don’t see where to do that. I’ve clicked on everything I can see, but somehow can’t see it.
