Facebook Business Pages Want More Likes, NOT Likes. Huh?

Facebook Business Pages Want More Likes, NOT Likes. Huh?

 Dear Facebook, Why did you choose the same word on business pages – LIKE – for becoming a fan AND for giving approval to a post?

On a business page, if you ask people to like your PAGE, you may get a POST “Like,” when you really wanted a PAGE “Like.” (see image below)

Whick kind of Facebook Like?

On personal pages, one can “add a friend.” Then one can “Like” their posts. No one gets the functions confused.

So no matter what you say on a business page, it’s tough to convey that you want more “Likes” not “Likes.” It was soooo much clearer when we asked people to “become a FAN of our Page.”

Facebook, We don’t like this.

Sincerely,

Facebook Business Page Owners (oops, I forgot, now we are all “Admins”)
