See Who Likes your Fan Page

by · September 13, 2012

What if you could see who likes your fanpage?

In this social media tutorial,  I’m going to cover a Facebook feature most admins don’t know exists. And that’s how to check your Facebook Fan page Connections.

Now, new likes are great, and while your Facebook insights give you demographic information about your fan base,  now there’s a way to see who likes your Facebook fan page  and which other pages have ‘Liked’ your page. Very important information here! So let’s dive right in.

Who likes your Facebook fan page

To see who likes your Facebook  fan page, access your admin panel. Now what I wanted to highlight here is this drop down box which allows you to filter by subscribers, page admins, and even those fans you have banned or want to welcome back.

Ever wonder if a competitor likes your Facebook Fan page? Check using ‘Pages that like this’

Video Tutorial

Watch the short video tutorial for a helpful walk-through of the Facebook Fan page Connections feature to see who likes your Facebook Fan page:

The Most Important Selection:

The most important selection however would be the ‘Pages connected  to your Fan page’  for these 2 main reasons:

  • This information will let you know if a competitor is following your page, and you can promptly delete them.
  • You can also use this information as an invitation to connect with another fan page that may be industry related.

So what does this all mean?

Not only is Facebook Fan Page connections useful for moderating your fan base, but remember that social media isn’t about broadcasting, It’s about conversation. Chances are if another company was interested in your business enough to like your fan page, they may also be open to cross promotions or other b2b opportunities. Now you know who likes your Facebook fan page!

    This is really neat and it’s good to gather as much data as possible in your marketing efforts, so this should prove to me helpful and add more dimension to our analytics. Thanks for sharing this post on BizSugar.

      Thanks Ti! I appreciate the feedback. Information sure is key so the know you more (even about your competition) the better! Glad you found it on BizSugar!

    It appears that this method no longer works. Can someone verify? Here’s my issue. I have nearly 9,000 likes on my page and know of a person that is foloowing our posts and competing with us. They are an individual, not a group. For the life of me, I am unable to find him in our list of “like” and ban him. The list of likes only shows me the most recent 200 or so. There is no more “see all” in the likes section.

      Hey @facebook-1164039667:disqus , thanks for stopping by and I’ll look into this for you. That’s the difficult thing about creating these tutorials — the platforms and functions change constantly.

      When you say the person is “following” your post, do you mean he is subscribed to them? If so there is an option to filter the list by subscribers.

      Is this the best way to get back to you after I do further research?

  • Facebook User

    Does this still work. I can only see who liked my page that was already a “freind” on my personal facebook page.


    • Jacob Curtis

      Yes, this still works. I just checked for a few of the fan pages I help manage and I was seeing recent “likes” of people I had no connection with. Make sure you are using the “New Likes” box in the admin panel and not the “Invite Friends” box on the right hand side. Watch the video if you need to see the difference between the two @facebook-100005126975708:disqus

    This method does not work for me. I can only see about 21 of my 358 fans. After 21, there is no option to “See More.”

    • Jacob Curtis

      @834c7d321b5a150bd25841b6569a2035:disqus, it may be a privacy settings those fans have. But this seems pretty odd. Are you still having the problem?

      • betoomar

        i got the same problem here, trying to see all my fans but “see more” button stop appearing.

  • Karan Bhatia

    Hey Jacob,

    Is there a way I can find out how many of my fan’s friends like my page ? If X likes my page, I want to find out how many of X’s friends like my page

    • Jacob Curtis

      Hey @facebook-726310706:disqus, as of right now, I am unsure if there’s a way to do that. However you can check the total number of Friends of Fans from within your pages insights.

    I don’t see where it say show on mine its not where yours is

  • Kathleen Henderson

    This is so incredibly helpful! I’ve been wondering this for some time now, especially as it relates to giveaways on my blog. I generally require folks to either subscribe by email or “like” my FB page, but wasn’t sure how to verify that a winner had indeed “liked” my page. Now I’m all set. Thanks!
