How to See Who Likes your Facebook Page

A Facebook page is a great way to build an engaging community for your business or brand. Your Facebook page also offers valuable insight about your customers like who likes your page, your followers age groups, and where you customers live.

Knowing how to find this data can be tricky, but doing so can drastically improve how you understand your customers. In this article, we’ll show you how to see who likes / follows your Facebook page on your PC and in the Android / iOS mobile app.

How to See Who Likes your Facebook Page

You can see who likes your Facebook page by navigating to People and Other Pages in your page’s settings. Below, we’ll show you how step-by-step on both desktop and mobile.

Keep in mind that you won’t be able to see every single person that likes your Facebook page. This is due to Facebook’s privacy settings. If someone has their Facebook profile setup to not show others what pages they like, then they will not appear on the list.

How to Ban People & Remove Page Likes from your Facebook Page

Facebook allows you to manage who likes your page under People and Other Pages in your page’s settings. You can remove people from your page’s likes or ban them from the page entirely.

Banning someone prevents them from posting or commenting on your page and blocks them from sending messages to it.

To ban or remove someone from your page on PC:

  1. Return to People and Other Pages in your page’s settings as shown in the steps above.
  2. Select the person, or people, you wish to ban or remove from your page by clicking the Checkbox to the left of their name(s).
  3. Click the Gear icon in the Search bar at the upper right and select Ban From Page or Remove From Page Likes.

Facebook Page Likes vs. Followers: What’s the Difference?

Knowing who likes your Facebook page is good a metric to have, but it’s only part of the story. Facebook allows users to both follow and like your page, or choose to do only one. The difference between the two are important to understand.

  • People who like a page, depending on their privacy settings, want to publicly show their support for the business or brand. The page may appear under their liked pages on their profile.
  • People who follow a page only want to see updates from the page on their timeline.

Generally, people who like a page will automatically follow it and receive that page’s posts on their timeline. People who like a page can choose to unfollow it at any time and no longer receive updates from it. Likewise, people can choose to follow a page but not like it.

Which of the two are most important is debatable, but what’s more valuable is understanding how to see both for your page.

Seeing Who Follows your Page

Seeing who follows your Facebook page can be done in nearly the same way you see who likes your page. Unfortunately, this option is only available on the Facebook website using your computer.

First, use the steps above to return to the People and Other Pages in your page’s settings. Now click the People who Like This Page dropdown and change it to People Who Follow This Page.
