How to comment on your Facebook fan page as yourself


If your like me and run a Facebook fan page, you might want to comment or like post as yourself, using your personal account so your friends can see the comments.  There are a few steps to follow to set your account to personal while your on your fan page.

Step 1: While logged in and on your business fan page, click the “Edit” button.

Your going to have to remember that now you are in a manual mode so to speak.  You have to manually select who your posting as on your Facebook fan page.

So now head back over to your Facebook fan page and take a look at step 3.

Step 3: While on your Facebook fan page, click the “Account” link at the top which should drop down a menu.  In the menu click “Switch back to …”.  You are now using your business Facebook page as your personal account.

You can also use these same steps to post to fan pages as other fan pages, if you manage multiple fan pages.  Hope this helps.

    Even with this unticked I am still not able to post as myself. Is it a bug? I think I did have it ticked at one point. Also is it possible the page type makes a difference with this?
