[ASC-list] A social media question I need to crack!

On a personal facebook page, one can make a choice to be alerted whenever
someone attempts to tag you and you can say Yes or No to the tagging. If
that's available for a group page then that's the thing to do. It's for a
different reason but would let you know whenever tagging occurred.

Hi Ian,

 

As I understand it, someone tagging your page in a post to their own
timeline doesn't notify you. I think it's an anti-spam thing, but I agree,
it's really frustrating.

 

I thought perhaps you could try a workaround where someone 'checks in' to
your place (if your page is also a place). But that doesn't work either!

 

On some pages (place pages only, I think), the things Facebook will notify
you about are listed at your page > settings > notifications.

 

It seems foolish of Facebook. Surely the power in having a page is in being
able to see how people are interacting with you. Notifications and check ins
should be a simple thing for them to let us use.

HI Ian, 

That may be because they have made their personal page secure such that it
can't link to/notify external pages?

Hi sarah,

So it notifies you if someone tags your page in a personal post?

We have all our notifications turned on but only recieve them if someone
specifically posts on our page...not about our page if that makes sense?

Hi Ian, 

Yes, Facebook notifies page/community managers when someone else
likes/interacts/comments on their page/community. Unless notifications are
switched off, which most people would not do for pages/communities (feedback
important, as you say). You should check your setup to ensure you're
receiving what you want to receive. 

Cheers

Sarah

Hi all,

I am trying to figure out if it is possible to be notified if someone tags
your Facebook page in a status they post on their personal page?

For example if I posted "I really like the Australian Science Communicators
(ASC) from my personal page does the ASC know I have tagged them and I am in
fact talking about them?

Any social media guns out there that can answer this question?

I have been testing this all morning with my organisations page but am
having no luck.

We are deciding whether we start up a campaign telling people to use a
hashtag or to tag our page but obviously if we can't tell they have tagged
us, that won't work.

It is likely that this isn't even possible, but just seeing if anyone has an
answer? 

Thanks
Ian
