Facebook like sent to a Facebook page instead of profile

  1. Hi folks,

    A question for you: Is there a way to send the likes to a Facebook page instead of my profile? I say that because I have a Facebook page that is about the blog and it is where I'd like the shares and likes to show up (it is better for the blog then in my profile).

    Thank you,

    The blog I need help with is verapoiesis.org.

  2. I'm sorry but I don't believe that's possible. Perhaps you would like to make that suggestion to Staff. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  3. I think I have a solution, but it would only work if you have both a Twitter and a Facebook page. This is what I did:

    1. I linked Facebook and Twitter by following these steps: http://www.ehow.com/how_4668396_connect-twitter-facebook-status-updates.html
    2. I put a checkmark next to the option next to my Facebook page and made sure the box next to my profile was blank
    3. I set up wp.com to publicize only on my Twitter account

    It appears to work so far. I posted something on wp.com, which was posted on Twitter, which was then posted on my Facebook page and not my profile.

  4. Clever, very clever!

  5. Well, actually that won't send Likes, I don't think, but it will send Links. I use Networked blogs to display my blog posts on my Facebook Page:

    You can see how that looks here:

  6. Update: That workaround airodyssey mentions will send YOUR likes to your Page, but it won't send the Likes of the people on your posts, Liking them. Does that make sense?

  7. A question for you: Is there a way to send the likes to a Facebook page instead of my profile? I say that because I have a Facebook page that is about the blog and it is where I'd like the shares and likes to show up (it is better for the blog then in my profile).

    As mentioned above, if you want an entry from your blog to show up in your Facebook account, you'll need to either use Publicize or enter it manually.

    The Like and Share buttons from Facebook will always post to the profile you're logged in to when you click them—it's how the buttons are designed by Facebook and there is no way for us to offer an option to change that.

  8. It appears to work so far. I posted something on wp.com, which was posted on Twitter, which was then posted on my Facebook page and not my profile.

    This is a great way to get both services firing, especially if you (like I do) prefer to make Twitter update your Facebook status automatically.

    You unfortunately don't get post excerpts in the Facebook feed, but it prevents duplicate entries in your Facebook profile.
