You need to consider many aspects when operating a business page, and comments and replies are one of them. Hence, learning to comment as a page on Facebook is necessary to engage with your customers and clients quickly.
Commenting as a Facebook page isn’t that hard. However, it may be time-consuming if you need to open this account each time to reply to someone.
So, if you can seamlessly switch between your personal and page accounts in a single click, that will be very good.
Facebook seems to allow its users to do this, too. However, there are many complications to this feature.
Hence, this article will teach you to comment on Facebook as a page, along with a handful of suggestions. Meanwhile, let’s also learn to view your Facebook page as a visitor while at it.
Can you Comment as a Page on Facebook?
Yes, you can easily comment on Facebook as your business page. You can do this in two ways.
The first way to do this is to open your page account and then use it to send replies and add comments to a post.
This method allows you to operate your page like a personal account. Anyone with enough permissions and roles (Admin, Editor, Moderator, etc.) can add a comment by opening it on their device.
Another way to do this is from a main personal account. If your FB account has a role on a page (Admin, Editor, Moderator, etc.), you can directly comment on a post (video, photo, etc.) without manually switching the account.
However, this method only works on a post published by a page (yours or someone else’s).
Furthermore, many users are having issues with this feature, and there is a high chance it may not work on a Smartphone. So, it is still better to know both methods for the convenience.
How to Comment as a Business Page on Facebook Post
To comment as a business page on a Facebook post, you need to switch between your personal and business accounts.
After that, you can locate that post published by you or your friends and leave replies and remarks as you like.
So, let’s learn this process on a Smartphone and a PC (Windows or Mac) so that you are ready to do this using any device you have.
Using Mobile App
Follow the step-by-step instructions below on your Android or iOS (iPhone or iPad) device to comment on Facebook as a business page.
1. First, launch the Facebook or Lite app on a Mobile phone and log in to your main account.
2. Next, tap the hamburger menu from the home screen and press the “flag” icon (pages) from the “Shortcuts.”
3. After that, tap the “Switch now” button on your page in the “Pages you manage” section.
Note: For an account with roles other than Admin (Moderator, Editor), you must download the “Meta business suite” app to manage that profile.
4. Once you are on the page news feed, you can scroll down and find the post you want to comment on.
If you want to locate the same post you see on your personal account, it is better to copy the link first. For this, tap three dots from the top right side of that content and select the “copy link” option.
Now, tap the search icon on your page account and paste that link. Once you search it, you will find that post effortlessly.
5. Finally, press the “Comment” option below that post and add a remark on that content as your business account.
You can also tag everyone or a person on that comment.
Though this is one way to add a remark on Facebook as a page, it is time-consuming. Every time, you need to switch accounts on your application for this to work.
So, you should check a feature on your Facebook account. Since this feature seems to be available on only a few accounts and countries, it is best to check it beforehand.
For this, open your personal Facebook account with a page role (Admin, Moderator, or Editor). Next, go to a post published by a page on your news feed.
Now, look at the profile icon at the bottom right corner of that post and tap it. You should now see your page name on that menu.
This feature allows you to shift between your personal and page accounts quickly. So, choose that account and add a comment afterward.
However, if you can’t see the profile icon or page account in the menu, this feature will not work. Many users face this issue, and you should instead use the above method if you encounter it.
Using Desktop Web App
Follow the step-by-step procedure below on your laptop or computer to comment on Facebook as a business page.
This method allows you to add comments without completely switching to the page account.
1. First, open a Facebook account with a page role on a desktop web browser.
2. Next, locate a post published by someone on your news feed.
To go to the page feeds, select the “feeds” and then “pages” option from the left panel.
3. After that, click the profile icon from the lower right corner of that post and select your page account.
Remember that you won’t see this icon if the content isn’t published by a page (yours or others).
4. Finally, press the “Comment” option and easily add a remark to your page.
This feature won’t require you to switch between accounts completely. You can just do it when you want to comment on a post.
However, there are many complications with this feature. You may not be able to use it properly. So, let’s look at another method instead.
This method allows you to switch to your page account from the comment section.
1. First, locate the post you want to comment on your news feed from your personal Facebook account.
2. Next, click the “Comment” button below that post.
Note: It can be any post (page or personal) for this method.
3. After that, press the “Profile icon” at the left side of that comment box and choose your page account from the list.
You will now immediately switch to the page account once you select it from the list.
4. Finally, add the comment on that post as your business page.
This method lets you switch to your page account from the comment section.
Once you add that remark, you can press the profile icon again and switch to your personal account.
So, even if this method is longer than the first one, it is still better than manually switching between different accounts. Hence, if you want to add a remark or reply on Facebook as a page, it is better to use a PC.
How to Reply to a Comment as Your Facebook Page
You need to switch to your Facebook page account to reply to a comment. Since it is relatively easier to switch with a PC, you should use it if possible.
To do this, just go to the comment section of your own post or others and decide where to reply.
Now, tap the profile icon next to that comment box and select your page account.
This way, you will open that post on your page immediately. Hence, no need to locate the post manually.
Once you switch to the correct page, you can reply as you want.
If you are using a Smartphone, you must first switch to your page account or use the Meta Business Suit app.
After that, you can reply to any comment as a business page as long as you have enough permission.
Can you Comment as a Business Page on the Facebook Mobile App?
Yes, you can easily comment as a business page on the Facebook Mobile application. However, compared to a PC, it is relatively time-consuming.
To do this, you need to switch to that page account on your Mobile phone. You will find your page on the shortcut menu after tapping the hamburger icon on the homepage.
Of course, don’t forget to copy the link of a post (where you want to add a comment) before doing this so that you can locate it on your page faster.
Note: If you aren’t an Admin of a page, you may need to download the Meta Business Suite app to manage it.
Why Comment as yourself on your Facebook Business Page?
You should comment as yourself on your Facebook business page for personal engagement, authenticity, direct communication, building relationships, humanizing your brand, etc.
While adding the comment as your page has its advantages, you should also use your account if possible.
This will help you create a brand around yourself and increase the authenticity and trust among followers. And there is no need to switch between accounts.
You need to be an Admin or with the necessary roles (Editor or Moderator) to add comments on a post as your page.
Furthermore, the feature that lets you comment as a page without switching the accounts may not work. So, you need to open your page completely to comment on any posts.
Yes, you can always add comments as yourself on your Facebook page. However, make sure people know that you are the owner or manager of that page to avoid confusion.
In conclusion, adding a comment on Facebook as a page isn’t that hard. However, you may get frustrated switching between accounts in such situations.
Hence, you can respond using a PC or your personal account to save time and effort.
Overall, hope this helps you with your issue. If interested, let’s also learn to link Pinterest to the Facebook business page if you have time.
