“Get Notifications” Prompt After Liking A Facebook Page Test Has Ended

Yesterday, there was a bit of a hullabaloo around the fact that a user was shown a “Get Notifications” prompt after a page was liked. The text stated “Don’t miss updates from PageName” and had a button that allows users to get all notifications.


While it appeared that the prompt may be a new feature that was being pushed live, we confirmed with Facebook that it was just a test, a test that has now ended. A Facebook spokesperson gave us the following statement.

“Confirming it was a test to help people stay up to date with Pages they’re interested in; though we’re no longer testing it.”

So for everyone who began furiously telling fans to try to “Get Notifications” for their pages, have no fear, it was just a test. For now.

    Well, you CAN still furiously tell fans to try to “Get Notifications” for your page; it’s just not quite as simple a process. I appreciate the “Get Notifications” option, but I only use it for a handful of brands I really love. Overkill happens quick when that red notifications button is always blinking.

    If only we could avoid people from automatically adding us to groups!

    Can you please explain the process? I have a small community organization and need my admin posts to push to member’s phones. Thank you!

    Hi Kiera,

    I explain it thoroughly in this post: http://raventools.com/blog/facebook-interest-lists-and-promoted-posts/. Although I’m not entirely sure if it’s available for everyone on Facebook. The way they test things in small groups, you can never be sure. But I’ve had this option for a long while now, so the odds are pretty good. Good luck!

    Thank you! I have been SEARCHING for that option for a very long time! You’re a Post-Saver!
