How to Get ALL Notifications from a Facebook Page

Share...

 The ability to become a fan of a brand on Facebook offers a great way to stay in touch with company happenings, new products, special sales alerts and more.

"Liking" a Business, makes you a fan but does not guarantee you see the posts the Page makes

“Liking” a Business, makes you a fan but does not guarantee you see the posts the Page makes

 

By “Liking” a page, you’ve chosen to become a fan so that you get information from the company and the posts they make in your own News Feed on Facebook, but the downside is that simply liking a page does not ensure that a fan is able to see all the brand Facebook posts.

In fact, the median reach of Facebook posts by a Page to a fan is 16%.  In plain English….fans typically see only 16% of the posts a brand makes on their Facebook Page!

Can this be overcome?  You want to see the posts of the company you have “Liked” and don’t want to miss a post.  Does Facebook offer an option to get all the posts?

Get Facebook Notifications

Facebook offers a solution for Pages to get “Notifications” from any Page.

Notifications alert a Facebook user every time a page makes a post, just like a user is alerted to a post on their wall or a comment a friend makes on their posts.  Notifications are a great way to stay in touch with all that a brand is posting.

This will then activate notifications to you for that Page.

Notifications alerts of a new post will appear in your Facebook Notification area.  A red square with the number of new notifications that you have not yet viewed appears at the top of your Facebook page in the web, mobile, or mobile app versions of Facebook.

The Value of Notifications:

For any Facebook user the value of Facebook Notifications is the ability to ensure that you as a fan see and are informed of each post by a Facebook Page. This keeps you “in the know” about items, sales, and happenings from that company.  For businesses, the value of Notifications has many applications including:

  • By encouraging fans to activate notifications from your page, you help ensure they get your content and posts!
  • Notifications gives a brand the ability to follow competitors and see what they are sharing and doing.
  • As well, from an industry perspective a business can get notifications from the pages of leaders and influencers in their industry as a way to stay in touch with trends and new information.

Facebook notifications is a simple and useful tool for Facebook users to make sure they are alerted to news and items of interest from any fan page on Facebook.

  • Thanks for this post, Mike. I shared it on my Page and asked my fans to share it with all of their fans. There is another way to turn on notification and you don’t need to visit the actual Page to do it. Mouse over the name or avatar of any Page in a post or comment anywhere and you’ll get a popup. Mouse over the Liked button and select “Get Notifications” from there.

      You actually don’t have to like a page to get their updates. You simply just turn on notifications without liking the page. I’s a great way to “spy” without the page owners knowing.

    • Yes, thanks for adding that Hugh. I love the hover over access!

  • Jorgen Poulsen

    You actually don’t have to like a page to get their updates it’s just that people don’t know. You simply just turn on notifications without liking the page. I’s a great way to “spy” without the page owners knowing.

  • Unfortunately it is not possible to get notifications from a page TO your page! You can only get notifications to your personal profile. The only option page to page is ‘Like’. This means you have to use your personal profile for notifications relevant to all your pages and it is easy to get clogged with stuff you’d rather keep on a business level 🙁

    • Yes, it is Page to Profile. Lots of us use Facebook for business heavily and the key is that it is a social network so makes sense to me for Notifications to be shown to profiles by Facebook.

  • Mike, the reminder about the notifications is good to know. 16% is a pretty small average. True, not everyone will do it- but having those who are the most interested get all of your posts is a big deal.

    There is a possible bug encountred while having the notifications on in which for some pages you actually don’t get them. Anyone know how to fix that? I am missing out and don’t want to. :C

  • Jenn Carter Vogel

    How do you do this with Facebook Mobile, though? On FBM, it only gives the option of follow or unlike when you tap the like thumb on a page. That’s using Apple iOS, btw. Just curious. 🙂 Thanks!

    • Hi. Yes, these are desktop instructions. Mobile has less features.

    • Same on Android. While the notifications are supported on mobile, there doesn’t appear to be a way to turn then on (or off) from a mobile device. That’s a real bummer considering the Facebook audience is highly mobile.

      • Yes, what I outline is desktop. It is rare to have all the same robust features in mobile as they do in desktop version. Typically any app streamlines things and narrows down features somewhat on a mobile.

  • Thanks for the useful information. it helped me alot

  • Eddie

    I’m getting only one day of notifications now. How can I correct this, please?

  • Neil Moll

    How do you do this on mobile app? Going to “Liked” on mobile doesn’t give you the ‘get notifications’ option.

    • That is correct. No method to access on a mobile device.

  • Brylle

    is there a way to get notifications from ALL pages i liked?

    • You need to setup Notifications per page to get them from each.

  • Sarah H

    Is there a way, as a Page to track how many people subscribe to Notifications?

    • Hi Sarah. No, at this time there is not a way to know that number.

  • Hi,
    Great article, thanks.
    I have been doing the notifications for a while, but for about the last several weeks, I’m not getting any page notifications from ANY page…. I’ve tried to unlike and re-like, and everything I can think of and haven’t had any luck… Do you or anyone else know of a solution to get notifications from other company’s pages again? Please reply and let me know asap when anyone can, thanks!

  • Jen

    I have a friends list that consists of only 2 friends. I have marked “get notifications” on both individuals. Sometimes my friend list will have a 1 next to it indicating that I have a notification however when I click on it I get a “no post to show” message? sometimes I see the post sometimes I dont?

    • Well, my article is about Notifications for Facebook Pages, not friend lists. However, I would say that this is a Facebook bug perhaps.

  • Goldy Jandu

    does anyone know how can you get a push notification from a page that you like? i.e. phone vibrates when a page updates its status etc etc, basically I’m following a betting tips page and I never seem to get the notification on time and miss out on the tips as they are inplay, as there anyone who can suggest a fix around this? Id really appreciate it

    • Todd McDonnell

      That is my exact problem, and for the same reason, inplay bets!! LOL!!
      Did you ever figure out how to do this? It’s a major annoyance, I don’t know how others get on the tips since there doesn’t seem to be a way to get mobile notifications from a page…?

      • Liu

        I’d like to get the same as you Todd. Did you figure it out? All I get in my phone is “you have 20 new notifications”. I want individual notifications.

  • Suzie Ellis

    Since November I have stopped receiving email notifications. I have tried every trick in my book to get them back on. I have Comcast internet (Xfinity), using Outlook for my Hotmail account, Norton for bugs and such. Driving me bonkers

    • Anna Tittle

      From Anna, Hi Suzie, A couple of weeks ago my chat list was wrong. Meaning the wrong
      people were on my list. I did a report a problem twice & they
      finally fixed it. After that was when I had the problem of not getting
      Facebook email’s. Did this happen to you? Or did you have something
      else that they fixed? I also have a Kindle & my Messenger isn’t
      working on my Kindle know & it used to. Messenger & chat go
      together on Facebook. So I think something got blocked somehow this is
      problem. I have been sending Report a Problem since I had this problem
      in every way I can think of and will continue till its fixed. Let me
      know please if you figure it out or if Facebook fixes yours.

      I also wonder if Facebook is trying to make us just use Notifications on
      the top of our Facebook page but I don’t want to. It takes to long to
      back & forth to see what people are saying or asking. But I think
      there is a problem somewhere & really not this.

    From Anna, Hi Mike, I have my email notifications set up to get notifications in my email. Since April 8th, 2017 I have not been getting them in my email. They are all going to my Notification at the top of my FB page. Have you heard if FB has taken this option away. I have been reporting this to FB since April 8, 2017. With no help for this problem. If you have any answers I would appreciate hearing from you. Anna

    • Barb Selgestad

      I’ve been having the exact same problem. I’ve talked to my email provider and done everything I can think of. I’ve reported twice to FB. On the set-up for email notifications there is a line that says something like “activity involving me” is marked as on but the line is greyed out. I can’t do anything with it. I want it on but I think since it’s greyed-out, that’s why I’m not getting the notices. I just have no idea how to fix that. Please let me know if you have figured out your problem yet.

      • Anna Tittle

        From Anna, Hi Barb, No I’ve not figured it out yet. I do have one thought. A couple of weeks ago my chat list was wrong. Meaning the wrong people were on my list. I did a report a problem twice & they finally fixed it. After that was when I had the problem of not getting Facebook email’s. Did this happen to you? Or did you have something else that they fixed?
