The only way to interact with a page is to post directly to it, which they can choose to publish or not. And you can check in, but that won’t tell the page who you are. It will just give a total number of check ins with anonymised demographic data.

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.
