hello i created two business pages on facebook but can't work out how to like another business page because when i go on a different business page and try to like it it says 'like as your own page' which can also mean that the other person's number of likes does not increase but if they 'like' me then my like thingy increases. Help?

Usually at the top of the Facebook page you'll see an option something like "Browse Facebook as [business] or [personal]" where the two are either your business name (ie: page name) or your personal account name.

If you click that link it'll switch you over to your personal account and you'll be able to like the page as yourself.

At least thats the theory. Smile

2 possibilities I'm guessing here for your original aim:

1) If you're trying to like your own pages, but as "you" instead of it saying "XYZ business likes" then this will probably be what you need to do:

When you go to the page about X business you should see something like:

...in the top right. In the above example I'm the admin of the "UKseries" page and thats what it defaults to, but if I click the link I can like posts as my own personal account.


2) If you're clicking other peoples pages that you have no connection with, ie: you're not an admin of then my guess is you should be seeing something like this example.

http://www.aardvarkbusiness.net/chat/images/pics/facebook-posting-image2.jpg

From there you should get the "Like" button separately from that dropdown list. To be honest, I'm really not too sure what the "Like as my own page" thing means so I always ignore it and just click the like button to the left (in this case it says "liked").

that is the problem i never see liked when doing it from a business page to another business page but do if individual and when admin still don't see the like on another business page unless they have set it up differently.

on your second image the like does not come up at all just a funny button which gives me a list like yours that says like as your own page etc.
