Whether you are a business owner or community manager, Facebook makes it easy to use the business page in harmony with your own profile.

Did you know that Facebook makes it easy to use the business page in harmony with your private Facebook account?

If you are an administrator of your page, always make sure you are liking and responding to comments as a business page. You have to convey a professional approach, especially in situations where you are dealing with negative comments.

Replying to users’ comments on social media is essential to expand reach and engagement and develop a stronger brand voice.

How to comment on a Facebook page from a desktop computer

To comment as yourself, first, you will need to log into Facebook, go to the page you administer, and find a post you want to comment on.

Then in the lower right corner, click on your profile icon with a little dropdown arrow next to the comment field. Select the name of the profile you want to comment as and write your comment.

How to change who you are commenting as on Facebook mobile

Steps for Android and iPhone:

If you have a Facebook app on your Android phone, you will not easily switch between your private and business accounts because the Facebook app for Android doesn’t have that option.

But, there is still a way to do it; just follow these steps:

  1. Go to the browser, search for and log in with your username and password.
  2. To go to the page you manage, click on the three lines in the right upper corner.
  3. Find a post you would like to comment on.
  4. In the lower right corner below the post or photo is a circle with an arrow. Click on the arrow and select your profile in the “Liking and commenting as” section.

Same steps you can apply if you have an iPhone.
