I’ve heard a lot of complaints recently about Facebook removing the “Like Page” button from Facebook page links in comments and posts.
I absolutely agree – it’s a pain.
But I have found another way to share links and like/follow pages more conveniently than having to open every page and click on “like” or “follow”.
If you tag yourself or your page in an individual person’s post, people can hover over the tag and click on the “Like” button in the small window that pops up.
To tag your page, start typing its name. It should cause a small window to appear with your page name in it. Click on the correct option and your page will be tagged.
Once tagged, your page name should appear highlighted. Then you can keep typing.
By putting more than one link in your post, you’re saving a lot of work and tidying up those “like for like” threads that can have hundreds of comments in them.
Keep in mind that this won’t work in groups or on pages, but it does work on individual people’s posts.
To tag your page in a group or page post, you need to do the same thing, but use your page @username instead.
You can still use more than one tag in each post.
