Two Quick Ways to Find The List of Fans Who Like Your Facebook Page

*Note: This is an updated version of a tutorial originally published in February 2012. This new-and-improved tutorial explains how to see your list of “Likes” using Facebook’s Timeline for brand pages.

 

A Blogging Bistro reader asks:

On my Facebook Fan Page, I used to be able to click on the number of “Likes” to see the list of names and learn who my newest fans were.

Now when I click on it, it takes me to the Insights page and shows me graphs and numbers, but no way to access the names. Am I missing something, or did they do away with this feature?

My response:

To see a list of people who like your page, click “View Insights,” which is located directly below your cover photo, on the righthand side.

 

From your Insights page, click the “Likes” tab.

Now, glance over to the right side of your screen and you’ll see a button that says “Export Data.”

Directly below that button is a small link that says, “See Likes.”

Click “See Likes” link and you’ll get a pop-down menu where you can choose to view your page’s likes by People, Pages, Admins, or Banned.

 

When you are viewing your page’s likes, you can also appoint page admins from this area. To learn about page admin privileges, read my post, “How to assign admin roles to Facebook fan pages.”

A second way see your list of Page likes:

1.  Make sure you are using Facebook as your Page’s persona. To do that, locate the “Home” tab in the upper righthand corner of your screen, inside the blue Facebook navigation bar.

2.  From the “Home” dropdown menu, select “Use Facebook as” and click the name of your Facebook fan page (NOT your personal profile).

3.  Go back to the blue navigation bar that runs across the top of your screen. You’ll see three icons to the right of the Facebook logo. The first icon has a silhouette of people on it. Click that icon, and it’ll show you your latest “likes.”

4.  You can then “See all” by clicking the link inside the pop up box.

5.  You can filter the “see all” by People, Pages, Admins, and Banned.

Thanks to alert reader, Gloria Rand, for spotting the “Likes” link on the Insights page.

Note: Several readers have alerted me that these two methods show a maximum of 500 of your fans. I have no idea why Facebook limits the amount of “likes” you can see. Makes things difficult for those of us who’d like complete access to our fans — which is probably all of us.

If anyone has discovered a method for viewing ALL your fans, please share it with us.

    Basically write something like this on the facebook search bar: “People who like (Page Name Here)” It doesn’t really work though… I only got 800 likes this way.

    I don’t think it’s possible to see all of our Likes because of our fans’ privacy settings. Go to Activity Log > Privacy > Review All Your Posts And Things You’re Tagged In > Likes > Pages & Interests On the right hand side there is an edit pencil. This gives you a choice of ‘Allowed On Timeline’ or ‘Hidden From Timeline’. I believe (and I’m not 100% sure) that if a fan has chosen the Hidden option, we will never see their name on our Like list.

    If you know the page id of your facebook page, then you can type in the location bar

    Just found out a really neat way to see all your “fans'” photos all in one place! Go to your fan page, select “use as “Your name” Select “Likes” – at the bottom you will see tiny profile photos – click “Select all” – viola!

    I did it and it showed me 1800 of the fans. 150 rows of 12 each. Still better than the 300 or so it will show you when you click to see who likes the page.
