Facebook Fan Page Changes Coming
When you are logged into your page you are given the option to "switch" and navigate Facebook as your fan page. Yes, you can post and make comments on OTHER pages as YOUR own page. This new option is really interesting and one that could go a long way to help you build your page's number of "likes." When you are logged in as your page there are even notifications of new "likes" and comments on your fan page, just like on your personal page. The other thing about the new design that I like is that you are able to select the featured pages you liked under your page in the sidebar. You're allowed to select your favorites to be highlighted in your sidebar. This gives you a great place to promote the pages of friends, brands you like or work with you or pages you just find interesting.
To see the differences you can see my MrBrownThumb Facebook page here which I've switched to the new layout and the Garden Bloggers Facebook page which I will keep as the old layout until March 1st so you can see the differences between the two.
UPDATE: I've been testing the feature to comment as my fan page on other fan pages and it works! You must add them to your page's favorites in order to be able to see them in the news feed. When you are at a page you like below the avatar is a link that read's 'add to my pages favorites' click on that and add it to your pages favorites to be able to communicate with it.
Update 2: Ruh-roh. I think I just discovered a downside to this. A whole new batch of email notifications when people like or reply to your postings as you page.
