• Pingback: How to Get ALL Notifications from a Facebook Page | Lower Merion Community Network()

  • 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.

      Anna

    • I updated the post with some items for you to check out about email notifications.

  • Anna Tittle

    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?

        • I added content and screenshots on where to adjust your Email notifications. Can’t guarantee 100% it works all the time, as that is on Facebook, but this is how to do it!

  • Felix Kiema

    niiice tip….thank youu

  • May 2017 update…. I’ve updated the post to show the latest Facebook design to get Notifications under “Following” and also how to adjust your Notifications to get them via email as well if you want. Now remember, Facebook always changes things and at times so items can have bugs so be aware of that! It’s not foolproof!

  • Deblovscats1

    Is there a way to get more notifications if you don’t have a group or page? I use to get 150 – 200 notifications a day from friends, now I hardly get any at all, I’m lucky if I get 10 a day! I haven’t changed my settings, so what happened?
