Facebook Suggests Pages You Should Like

Facebook loves to suggest new experiences: friends, games, why not pages? Sister site Inside Facebook wrote Friday that the site added an option on the left-hand side: Like Pages. Clicking that takes you to a screen offering page suggestions based on interests in categories such as movies, music, brands, local businesses, and recent check-ins.

This is a way for Facebook pages to regain some of the momentum they lost when the site started removing fake profiles that had liked several pages. Now pages can recover from the hit with real, actual users. Facebook appears to take information based on where you’ve checked in, what pages you already like, and what interests you have listed in your profile. This way, the site suggests pages that you might actually like, not just what your friends have liked or what’s popular.
