“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.
