Facebook Offers Recommended Pages In An Effort To Connect More Users

Facebook loves to recommend friends and applications, but now the site has come up with a new way to get users to like more pages. With the Recommended Pages feature within Facebook — as first noticed by sister site Inside Facebook — users can connect to pages based on their check-in histories, as well as catch up on pages recommended by their friends.

To access this new feature, click here, or look for the “Like Pages” tab on the left sidebar of the screen.

Through this feature, Facebook recommends pages you haven’t liked based on past check-in history and interests. Users can also create a page from this spot or search for pages that they’d want to like. To the right, Facebook culled together page invites from friends that users have not yet responded to.

Earlier this year, Facebook tried to connect users with pages via the “Like Pages” tab, but it looked quite different, categorizing pages based on interest.
