Finally, You Can Comment as Yourself (Not Your Business!) on Your Facebook Business Pages

One of the biggest frustrations among Facebook Business Page users was the fact that there really wasn't a way to comment on your business page as anyone other than your business. For sole proprietors this probably wasn't a huge issue, but for pages with multiple admins or a business with more than one employee, it could be confusing.

Be confused no longer.

With all of the tweaking and upgrading happening at Facebook these days, it was only a matter of time before they adjusted the settings to allow you to comment on your business pages as yourself from your personal account and not just under the business name.

It's a simple adjustment; here's how to do it:

- Go to the business page on which you want to change the settings.
- Click the "EDIT PAGE" button in the top right hand corner of the page.
- On the Left Side of the page click "Your Settings"

- Uncheck the box that says "ALWAYS POST AS your page name

That's it! Now, your posts will show up as your personal name. If you want them to show up as posted by your page/business name, simply click the link on the right hand side of your business page that says "USE FACEBOOK AS your page name". Once you're done, click the box again to go back to using Facebook as yourself.
I hope this settings adjustment helps you out in your postings!
