Introducing Friends Activity to Facebook Pages

Facebook Friends Activity

It might seem a tad bit overwhelming with all the recent changes that have occurred on Facebook and there is still more to come. Most recently, Facebook has enabled friends to see other “friend’s activities” on Facebook Pages. This means that people on Facebook can have a clearer view of what is said about pages they have both “liked”, filtering out the noise from other people.

What does this mean for Facebook Page Owners/Admins?

As you know, peer recommendation is at an ultimate high and many people search for reviews from other people, even having businesses setting up shop on other sites to retrieve reviews regarding their business. Now with Facebook’s latest change to Facebook pages, friends can see anything and everything said by other friends that share the commonality that is your page, simply by going to your page and on the left hand side, clicking on “Friend’s Activity”.

Although access to each “friend’s activity” regarding a page is located on pages, it will differ from page to page. It is dependent on shared “likes” among friends. Pages cannot view these interactions; the feature disappears as soon as you use Facebook as your page.

What does this mean for Facebook Users?

This means that you will now be able to see what your friends think of a page i.e. business, interests etc. without having to see it come through your newsfeed, asking them or by viewing their profile. Any friend’s that have “liked” the same page(s) as you and have interacted on that page via “likes”, comments etc. are now viewable to you by visiting that page(s) “friend’s activity” located on the left hand side of the page.

This can help pages with peer recommendation and for users to see peer recommendation. All owners and admins must be watchful of what interactions are happening and as always responsive to any negative sentiment. This may even encourage you to become more vigilant regarding your Facebook page. In return, this feature makes a page more valuable to its users, for now they can see what their friends think, many which who most likely target your local area.

  1. This new feature of Facebook is really awesome, this can really help in my social media strategy for my business. Thanks for sharing this post.

  2. PJ Lightning says:

    Actually no, thumbs down. This change means that they are now broadcasting people’s statuses and threads to friends of friends and there is no way for the individual to stop it. It doesn’t matter if my wall is set to friends only. If a friend comments on my status, that status and every comment in it is broadcast to all of my friend’s friends unless SHE unsubscribes from ME.
    This is unacceptable and a complete breach of privacy.
    I should decide who can see my status, not Facebook’s admins.

  3. Please give facebook user’s the option to remove the “Introducing Friends Activity to Facebook Pages” pop up. I don’t want it popping up on my facebook page and should have the option to remove it.

  4. I don’t like your sidebar on the top right side of the screen showing when I’m online!! It’s an invasion of my privacy. Nor do I like the left sidebar showing my family, high school and home town friends activities. I did not opt for any of these items and want them removed from my facebook page. I can find out what’s going on with my family, high school and home town friends via facebook without your help!! I don’t want them blocked though – know what I mean???????????

  5. Whatever,I think that the facebook is good for me.

  6. I made some comments on a page and then deleted them because I realized they were ill advised, yet people can still see exactly 3 of them when they click Friend Activity on that page, how do I make that go away?

    This feature totally sucks! I just found posts and comments I’ve made, regarding politics and such, on the Friends’ Activity wall at FEMA, FBI, CIA, OBAMA, HOMELAND SECURITY, U.S. GOVERNMENT, etc.

    I’m pissed and so are all my friends. What we discuss in private should not go any further than OUR WALLS.

    It absolutely DOES NOT “enhance MY social experience”. What a bunch of BS. I filed a report with FB earlier tonight and listed all the pages I found with my posts and comments as violating my rights to privacy.

    What I write is MY opinion and MY content. It should be protected under copyright laws, same as my business website is protected from people who plagiarize!

  8. I want my privacy back, this is unacceptable unless an option to delete this activity thing.
