How to Comment as Your Facebook Business Page on Other Facebook Pages [2021]

Last Updated on August 11, 2021 by Wong Ching Ya

To be able to comment as your Page on other Facebook Pages is important.

Whether it’s for the purpose of building relationship between brands, co-promoting a service/product or even just to say ‘thank you’ to a Page that acknowledges your work, bottom line is that it shouldn’t be hard for a Page owner to participate in an on-going conversation on other Pages.

How to Comment as Your Facebook Business_Page

Ever since Facebook Page has a new look, the option to switch between commenting as a personal profile and Facebook Page is not always guaranteed. I find this rather inconvenient and wondering if I am the only one facing this issue.

If you’re also having problem commenting as your Page on other Facebook Pages, there are a few workarounds. Let’s start with the obvious:

 

Method #1: Comment on Other Pages Directly in Your Managed Page

Through Notifications:

Sometimes, we will be notified when other people/pages shared or commented on our post. This is the easiest way to communicate with them as we can do it directly in our Facebook Page.

How? By toggle the drop down menu at the upper right corner, below your Facebook Page cover picture:

Through Facebook Page Community Tab & Shares:

Another way to check for Page mentions is from your Page’s Community tab. These public posts including people posting on your Page and other Pages who have mentioned/tagged you in their public posts.

It’s always advisable to respond when other Pages acknowledge your work. Therefore, check though the Public posts and comment as your Page. Also, don’t forget to check all the shares received from the post:

Click ‘Shares’ and you will have access to all the Public Posts.

Normally, the ability to comment as your Facebook Page is not a problem within the Page itself. If you still facing issues to do so, refer here.

 

Method #2: Comment on Other Pages Outside Your Page

Frankly speaking, the option to ‘Comment as Your Page‘ should be available whenever we visit other Pages (or that’s how it used to be). Although I’m able to see it on a few Pages I visit, most of them don’t have this option.

In order to get that option appear on other Pages, firstly, you will need to have a Facebook Business Suite account.

If you haven’t, be sure to find out how to create one here; if this is the first time you heard about Facebook Business Suite, don’t worry, it’s just a more convenient way to manage your Facebook Page(s). Learn more about it here before proceed.

Once you’ve got it sorted out, follow the instructions below:

Step 1:  Go to the Page where you wish to leave a comment as your Facebook Page.

Step 2:  At the post you wish to comment, click at the date to access its individual post.

Step 3:  Now, add ‘business’ to the front part of its link so it will become:

business.facebook.com/PAGEUSERNAME/posts/………..

For this case, Mari’s original page post is: www.facebook.com/marismith/posts/10158081929915009

The new link will be: business.facebook.com/marismith/posts/10158081929915009

Step 4:  With the edited link, now you should be in the Business Manager view. Notice that the option to comment as your Page is now visible!

Method #3: Comment on Other Pages in Your Facebook Page’s News Feed

For those who claimed that this option is no longer visible, you’re right.

I couldn’t find it anywhere at the sidebar of my Facebook Page, so I tried to access it directly and to my surprise, it’s still there! (Do be clear that it’s different from your personal news feed at ‘Home’)

You may try to access yours by replacing ‘YOURPAGEUSERNAME’ with your own Facebook Page’s username, of course:

https://www.facebook.com/YOURPAGEUSERNAME/news_feed

Apparently, I have never accessed my Page’s news feed before, hence the intro page and all the suggested Pages.

Although it says ‘Introducing…’ but I doubt that Facebook wants me to find it. My guess is that it will not stay long, unless proven otherwise.

With the ever-growing changes on Facebook, you just never know how long you can keep using a feature until it gets discontinued, again. But the reason I’m sharing this, is that for all the Facebook Pages you’ve liked (as your Page), you can actually comment as your Page in the news feed while reading their updates at the same time. How convenient!

Tip: You can tweak the follow settings for each page easily within the Page’s News Feed as well. Hover over the Page name and click at the three dots > Follow settings > click Update. You can unfollow a page here as well.

EXTRA: How do I Comment as My Page on Other Pages I Managed?

This is quite simple, really. Just make sure you follow Method #2.

As long as the drop down menu that lets you choose between commenting as your Page and personal profile is visible, all your other managed pages are listed there as well. Select the page you wish to comment as, and voila!

 

Afterthought

Personally, I prefer Method #2 as I can comment directly to any individual post on any Pages when I’m prompted, without scrolling endlessly to search for it in the Page’s news feed. But again, Method #3 is good for public networking and follow up on Pages you liked. So, I’ll use that method when needed as well.

To be honest, the ability to comment as your Page should be made accessible on all Pages so we can communicate easily with other business pages, without having to worry about exposing our personal account.

What do you think? Should Facebook make it easier for us to comment as our Facebook Page? Love to know your thoughts.
