When someone on your personal Facebook page leaves a comment for you on your wall, by default, you’ll be notified of this via email.
Unfortunately this is not the case for fan pages. Facebook currently acknowledge that this functionality is not currently available.
Do Facebook seriously expect us to have to manually monitor every single fan page we create every single day? This is beyond a joke and needs to be fixed immediately.
There are a bunch of people already trying to persuade Facebook of how important this functionality is in one of the Facebook discussion forums.
I’m adding a helping hand myself, and have created the following YouTube video which explains everything clearly, tells you a potential work-around, and also tells you the two action items we need to take to try to get Facebook to come to their senses and provide us with viable email notification options.
Here are the links to the two suggested action items mentioned in the video:
- leave a comment on the discussion thread
- submit a suggestion to Facebook, asking for email notification options for fan pages, and add a link back to the discussion thread mentioned above within the details of the message
Please pass around links to this blog post or the YouTube video, and let’s get Facebook to come to their senses and give us this much needed functionality.
