How to Choose Featured Business Pages on Your Facebook Business Page

By Jamie Crager, Scott Ayres, Melanie Nelson, Daniel Herndon, Jesse Stay

The Featured setting allows you to showcase specific business pages you have Liked as your Facebook business page. You can use the setting also to feature admins of your business page if you want.

In general, you can Like as many business pages as you want, and five of those pages appear randomly on the right side of your business page. To see the Featured page, go to your Admin panel and click Edit Page→Edit Settings→More. Then select Featured from the drop-down list.


You can also showcase specific business pages instead of a random sampling of all the business pages you Like. Note: If you haven’t yet Liked other pages as your page, you won’t to be able to change this setting.

Then follow these steps:

  1. In the Admin panel, click the Edit Featured Likes button.

    If you haven’t previously selected other business pages to feature, you may see the Add Featured Likes button. Click that to get to the Edit Featured Likes button.

    The Edit Featured Likes window appears with a list of all the business pages you’ve Liked as your business page.

  2. Select the check boxes next to the five business pages you want to showcase.

  3. Click Save.

    The business pages you selected will appear in random order each time your business page is visited or refreshed in the visitor’s browser.

You may want to share who your admins are with your followers, especially if you’re mostly interacting as your brand (your business page) instead of as your personal timeline. By featuring your admins on your About page, any followers visiting your business page can put a personal face to status updates and comments.

When you feature an admin timeline, the admin’s name is listed on the business page’s About page and linked to his or her timeline. Visitors (whether or not they are followers) can click that link to view the timeline and send a friend request to that timeline. It’s important to consider your privacy settings and how you’ll respond to friend requests. You are under no obligation to accept requests.

If you’d like to keep your timeline private, you can respond by thanking the person for the request and explaining that you reserve your personal timeline for family and friends you’ve met in real life; if they’d like to connect with you, they can do so on your business page.
