Facebook testing new Page recommendation tool

Facebook testing new Page recommendation tool

It seems that Facebook has begun testing a new feature that will allow users to recommend pages to their friends as they’re browsing the Facebook website.

At the time of writing I’ve not been able to access this new feature myself, so it’s likely only been rolled out to a specific area or user-base. But as reported over at All Facebook, the new feature invites users to recommend a page to their friends by entering a comment in a small text box and clicking ‘recommend’. It’s accompanied by the following spiel: “Help your friends discover great places to visit by recommending this.”

Previously, such a feature was only available to page administrators to recommend their own content to friends. Now, it seems, users may soon be able to recommend any page.

If anyone else is seeing this feature, post a comment below saying where you’re based, and we’ll try and build a picture of who is and isn’t able to access it.
