A few weeks ago I published “The Unofficial User’s Manual For Updating Your Facebook Page” which mentioned tagging Pages as a Page. The following tactic was mentioned, but because so many people ask about it, I thought I’d call it out on it’s own.
A warning for practitioners: The best way to use this tactic is to either 1) be trusted by that community or, 2) selflessly praise that community.
People like Pages, Pages don’t
Facebook assumes that people like brands and organizations, Pages don’t. This makes sense, doesn’t it?
What businesses do is cross-promote each other through partnership and collaboration. On Facebook, this is expressed as Pages tagging each other.
How to tag another Page from your Page
You can promote your Page on another Page simply by tagging that Page (assuming you’ve liked the Page) in a status update on your Page. You do this simply by typing the “@” sign following by the name of the Page you want to tag.
