How to Suggest Pages in Facebook to Your Friends

by Heather Harris

If you want to share a Facebook page with those on your friends list, it is a quick and easy process, whether you are the page's owner or not. Facebook has removed the "Suggest to Friends" option for those who do not own the page, but you can still share the page and suggest it to those who have access to your wall, and see your posts in their news feeds.

If You Own Page

1

Log in to your Facebook account and navigate to the page you want to share.

2

Click on the "Suggest to Friends" link, most often located in the top right margin of the page.

3

Select the friends to whom you want to send the page suggestion, then click the "Send Recommendations" button.

If You Do Not Own Page

1

Log in to your Facebook account and navigate to the page you want to share.

2

Click the "Share" link, usually found in the bottom left margin of the page.

3

Type a message to your friends if you want to include one in the field provided. If you want to get the attention of certain friends in particular when suggesting the page, tag them in the message by typing the "@" symbol, typing the first few letters of their name, and selecting it from the list of names that appears.

4

Click the "Share" button to post the page suggestion and your message on your Facebook wall and in your friends' news feeds.
