Facebook Top Fan Badges Explained in 2021

Top Fan Badge is a great feature on Facebook pages that lets you identify your most engaged Facebook page followers and fans and also encourages these fans to engage even more with your Facebook page.

In this Facebook page tutorial, we are going to explain the most important thing you as a Facebook marketer or just a regular Facebook user has to know about the Top Fan badge.

What is Top Fan Badge on Facebook?

A Top Fan Badge is a badge that appears next to your profile icon that you can get if you are really active on a particular Facebook page.  Facebook gives out these top fan badges based on the interaction on the specific Facebook page.

Here are the main interactions that the Facebook algorithm takes into account when identifying top fans for a Facebook page:

  • watching a page’s Videos
  • liking the posts of the FB page
  • commenting on the posts of the page
  • sharing the posts of the Facebook page

When you become eligible to be a top fan on a Facebook page, Facebook will notify you and the Top Fan Badge will only be visible on the Facebook page next to your name if you click on Display Top Fan Badge.
