Here are just a few . . .
One & Two:
When you Like a page this is what you see.
But if you click on that little button?
You get this:
Right away, there are two options to insure you see what the pages you have opted into following are saying/doing! Hit Get Notifications or if you already get too many of those, simply add the page to your interested lists.
Three, Four, & Five:
These three buttons can be your best friends! Facebook determines who sees what by how often they interact with a page. So if you don't interact, the page suddenly disappears from your feed. The simplest way to fix this is simply to Like a post here and there, comment every once in a while, and sometimes, share a post. It's easy, it doesn't take a whole lot of time, and it saves everyone a ton of frustration.
If you're on the homepage, on the left hand side under the title "Pages" there is a place you can go JUST to see things from pages you have liked. Click on "Pages Feed' and voila! All the posts from all the pages you follow will be in that feed - just like your regular newsfeed only exclusively for pages you follow.
Simple, free, and pain free!
