    I just started a Page, and I have made like 5 posts to its wall, do these show up on my "friends" walls? I really did not want them to. I was just filling a page with items and then I was going to hit them with a suggestion to join the page as fans.

    It makes sense that it shows up on their walls since we are "friends" and I am posting on a page wall as I see my other wall posts show up.

    I am trying a twist of something on here, I will start a new thread on what I did once I see how it is doing.

    depends how your settings are set, hover over the settings tab at the top of the page, if the drop down menu does not appear, click on a blank part of the page and hover over it again, then select the second one down called privacy settings, and choose how you want it to look and what people can and can't see.

    beware changing one thing can effect another and withholding some info can make them look fake or stop people from adding you.

    OK, to continue my Dumb question, if I am already posting on their walls by posting on my Page, though they are not fans, then why invite them? The whole purpose is to post on their walls.

    See, I have had no one join since I made the 5 posts, I have invited no one, so I think there must be something in the code, since I have not officially join the page as a fan, they are not going on their walls, though I dont know if me being a fan would change anything. I think some of the 350 "friends" would of became fans.

    Now, if I join it as a fan, and make posts, it would likely appear, and that would be just as good.

    Why not then make a lot of legit looking pages, post stuff to them, and they will appear on our "friends" profiles? No need to spam walls then. That is why I think they need to join.
