So I was doing what I always do when my dogs wake me up at 6:30 in the morning (yes, even on a Sunday), perusing Facebook. I found a page that I liked, and I wanted to ‘Like’ it. I don’t know about you, but the only reason I ‘Like’ a page on Facebook is so I can stay updated on that topic. I want to see their blog posts, new product, jokes, videos, quotes of the day, and if I decide I don’t want those things anymore, I unlike the page. So I’m not sure why Facebook has made this change, but it kind of bugged me.
So there I was, about to click ‘Like’ on a page. As soon as I did, this drop-down appeared:
In order to get updates from pages you like, make sure you do the following:
- When you click ‘Like’ on a page, the above drop-down will appear. Click ‘Show in News Feed’. If you don’t, you will not see updates from this page.
- Just to be sure, check a couple pages you are already a fan of, and make sure ‘Show in News Feed’ has a checkmark next to it. Do this by hovering your mouse over the ‘Liked’ button on the right-hand side of the page. After a second or two, the menu, as pictured above, will drop down.
