Verifying winners of your giveaways can be a daunting task on Facebook. There is one easy way of doing so – providing the fan has their Facebook settings set to where one can see their interests on their info page.

***For purposes of this tutorial, I am going to pretend I am A Goddess of Frugality looking to verify Susan Woods as a fan of A Goddess of Frugality’s Facebook page.

Here’s what you do:

1. Go to the person’s Facebook page you are looking to verify as a fan of your’s. Click on the ‘Info’ tab.

2. Scroll down the page to where you see “Interests.”  Expand that category (you may have to do a couple of expansions to get all the pages the person likes to appear). You should see something like this:

3. Now you want to pull up a search box.  To do this – hold down the keyboard ‘Ctrl’ key while pressing the ‘F’ key.  The search box will appear at the top right of your page (see picture above).
4. In the search box – begin typing the name of your page.  As you start typing, the page may seem like it’s going haywire but it’s actually doing what you want it to do.  Keep typing 3/4/5 letters of your page’s name (if you want to enter your entire page’s name…that is fine too).
The next thing you will know – if this person is a fan of yours, your page name will be highlighted with the text you’ve entered in the search box.  If you don’t pull up your page name then that person is NOT a fan of your page!

That’s it.  If you have any questions or get stuck along the lines of trying this – by all means contact me and I will help you the best I can.
